The wonderful world of mathematics

The three mathematical Clusters of Excellence from Bonn, Berlin and Münster invite you to a Math Night on December 2


Bonn, 22.11.2022. From secret codes to evacuation plans to electronic music: math is everywhere. Anyone interested can experience such exciting and diverse topics on December 2 at the joint digital math night of the math excellence clusters of the University of Bonn (Hausdorff Center for Mathematics), the Berlin universities (MATH+) and the University of Münster (Mathematics Münster). For the younger ones, there will be, among other things, a mathematical magic show and calculating with games in the afternoon program.

The three clusters invite you to an afternoon, an evening and a night full of mathematics with fun and games, a round table discussion and exciting lectures. Scientists from the mathematics excellence clusters - Hausdorff Center for Mathematics in Bonn, Mathematics Münster and MATH+, the Berlin Mathematics Research Center - will demonstrate how beautiful and diverse mathematics is in vivid workshops and lectures.

Participation is free of charge, registration is not required. More information at

Secret codes, the mathematics behind timetables, arithmetic with games and a mathematical magic show - the program for students at Math Night from 3 to 7 p.m. offers all this.

"What? YOU want to study?! Diversity of educational paths" - Mathematicians from the three clusters with a non-academic family background discuss this topic afterwards and describe their own experiences at the university.

Researchers from all three Clusters of Excellence will provide insights into their mathematical research in the evening and night program from 8 p.m. to midnight. They talk about optimal evacuation plans, the difference between a sphere and a donut, and what mathematics has to do with electronic music.
