About us

We solve in-depth, theoretical questions, isolate problems and build bridges to the real world. The Department of Mathematics at the Technical University of Munich is one of Europe's leading institutions at the interface of Applied Mathematics and other sciences.

One of our core tasks is to connect theoretical understanding and practical application – in research and teaching. This combination runs in both directions: Real-world problems from Engineering, Finance, the Life Sciences, Data Analysis, and other fields of application or research quickly lead to challenging mathematical problems. Vice versa, a theoretical understanding of the underlying structures often opens up new possibilities for application.
