Research Areas

The participating institutes provide the foundation for the research activities of the HCM. With the advent of the HCM, this research has been channeled into twelve research areas at first and now ten. Each of them brings researchers from different institutes together to jointly advance knowledge in these fields. The areas are furthermore strengthened  by newly appointed positions, namely Hausdorff Chairs, Bonn Junior Fellows and Hausdorff Postdocs.

For detailed information on the research topics, visit the individual pages of our research areas.



The activities of the Hausdorff Research Insitute for Mathematics put forward mathematical research by bringing together internationally leading mathematicians to work on specialized topics. Similar programs are organized for young, upcoming researchers to advance mathematical prodigy. For more information, please see HIM's dedicated webpages.


Graduate studies at the Bonn International Graduate School in Mathematics have a strong orientation towards research. PhD students are valuable members of their respective research areas. For more information, please see BIGS' webpage.
