This is a collection of interesting information about the Hausdorff Center for Mathematics.

The Hausdorff Center of Mathematics (HCM) is a Cluster of Excellence at the University of Bonn. Based upon six units, the Cluster ranges from pure and applied mathematics to mathematically orientated research in economics as well as interdisciplinary research. Identifying and addressing mathematical challenges of the 21st century is one of the key goals of the HCM, along with the promotion of early-career researchers in an independent and international environment. Established in 2006, it has since been successfully renewed twice, in 2012 and most recently in 2018, for an additional seven years.

Felix Hausdorff

Our cluster of excellence was named after the famous mathematician Felix Hausdorff, who worked at the University of Bonn from 1921 to 1935. Find his biography here.

What is the Hausdorff School?

The Hausdorff School for Advanced Studies in Mathematics wants to bridge the gap between attaining a PhD and beginning a career in academia or beyond the university. See here for more details behind this idea.
