There is a great need for mathematicians - not only because of their mathematical knowledge, but often also because of their outstanding analytical skills.
It is therefore our aim to give interested school students an insight into the broad, diverse and promising professional field of mathematicians. Mathematics is more than numbers and arithmetic!
This year, too, we are continuing the “Future Field Mathematics” series and presenting further areas of application of mathematics from industry and research. Due to the current situation, we will not meet in person in the university lecture hall and will hold the event digitally as last year. We are thus offering many pupils the opportunity to gain exciting insights into mathematics. The contributions this year come from the field of quantum computing, research on music perception and mathematical support for steelmaking.
In addition to three lectures with moderated discussion and questions, at the end of the event there will be the opportunity to talk to the speakers in small groups.
Participation is in groups - e.g. B. in a course group out of the classroom - or as an individual from home. The teachers will have the opportunity to try out the technology beforehand. More information and registration can be found here.
