The Faculty of Mathematics at Bielefeld University enjoys an excellent reputation within the international mathematical community. Many visitors from Germany and from abroad use funds from the German Research Foundation (DFG), from the Alexander-von-Humboldt foundation or from their own grants to do research here at Bielefeld University.
Large-scale projects, such as
- the Collaborative Research Center CRC 1283 "Taming uncertainty and profiting from randomness and low regularity in analysis, stochastics and their applications" (starting July 1, 2017)
- the Collaborative Research Center CRC 701 "Spectral Structures and Topological Methods in Mathematics",
- the International Research Training Group IRTG 2235 "Searching for the regular in the irregular: Analysis of singular and random systems" (under the roof of the Bielefeld Graduate School in Theoretical Sciences, BGTS),
- the Alexander von Humboldt professorship for Prof. William Crawley-Boevey,
as well as other scientific units within the university form a basis of this intense research activity. These are complemented with individual research projects and international collaborations.
An overview on the different topics can be found in the list of core research areas of the faculty.
