Department of Mathematics

Welcome to the Department of Mathematics



The Department of Mathematics is part of the Faculty of Sciences. The research portfolio of the Department of Mathematics ranges from fundamental to applied mathematical research.

The three main research interests are Analysis, Modeling and Numerics, Representation Theory and Operator Algebras as well as Optimization.

In 2021, the Department of Data Science was spun off from the Department of Mathematics. Together, the two departments offer a joint range of study programmes.

The study programmes include the bachelor programmes Data Science, Mathematics, Business Mathematics and Technomathematics, the master programmes Data Science, Mathematics, Business Mathematics and Computational and Applied Mathematics as well as education of mathematics for teaching at Realschule and Gymnasium.

Most of the facilities of the two departments are located in Felix-Klein-Gebäude, Cauerstraße 11, at the Campus Erlangen Süd.
