Cooperation Projects

Mathematics of Many-Body Quantum Systems

Collaborative Research Center "Mathematics of Many-Body Quantum Systems and Their Collective Phenomena"

The project aims to further develop mathematical techniques, which in turn help to understand physical phenomena in correlated quantum systems. The Collaborative Research Center is a transregional cooperation between scientists of the Ludwig-Maximilian-University Munich (LMU), the Technical University of Munich (TUM) and the University of Tübingen.

TUM-ICL Mathematical Sciences Hub

TUM-ICL Mathematical Sciences Hub

The TUM Department of Mathematics has joined together with Imperial College London to form the TUM-ICL Mathematical Sciences Hub. The Hub enables exchange visits between the nodes or joint workshop activities, and is financially supported by the respective Mathematics Departments and the TUM Global Incentive Fund.


Research Training Group "Advanced Optimization in a Networked Economy"

Saving resources, intelligent networking and optimal use of big data: The DFG-financed Research Training Group AdONE concentrates on Operations Research and Management Science. The researchers develop models and processes for software, which enable efficient planning and management of resources.

Cluster of Excellence MCQST

MCQST – Munich Center for Quantum Science and Technology

MCQST is examining the scientific basis for complex quantum systems and establishing the technological foundation of quantum technology. The researchers address significant fields of application ranging from quantum computers, powerful quantum information systems and quantum sensors to novel quantum materials.

Collaborative Research Center DGD

DGD – Discretization in Geometry and Dynamics

The Collaborative Research Center SFB Transregio 109 is supported by the German Research Foundation (DFG) and brings together scientists from the Technical University of Munich with colleagues from Berlin, Graz and Vienna to pursue groundbreaking research in the fields of geometry, dynamical systems, analysis and computer topology.

Former Project: IGDK Munich – Graz

"Optimization and Numerical Analysis for Partial Differential Equations with Nonsmooth Structure"

In the International Research Training Group IGDK, financed by the German Research Council (DFG), the high level qualification of doctorate students is supported through involvement in a wide range of interdisciplinary research projects in the areas of optimal control, numeric mathematics and analysis.
