Kolleg Mathematik Physik Berlin


The Kolleg Mathematik Physik Berlin is an interdisciplinary center at Humboldt University Berlin. Its community of research groups shares a mutual interest in Mathematics and Physics. Quantum field theory is their unifying theme, which connects to algebraic geometry, number theory and differential geometry in mathematics, as well as to research in particle physics, gravitation and string theory in physics.
Since the advent of the SFB 647 Space-Time-Matter, founded through enormous efforts by Jochen Bruening there has been common scientific interest in the Berlin area in interdisciplinary research between mathematics and physics.

This was recognized in the creation of a bridge professorship between the two disciplines for Matthias Staudacher, and boosted by the arrival of Alexander von Humboldt Professor Dirk Kreimer in the area.

Together, the groups of Johannes Bluemlein, Francis Brown (a regular guest professor here), Hélène Esnault, Gavril Farkas, Dirk Kreimer, Klaus Mohnke, Hermann Nicolai, Jan Plefka, Matthias Staudacher and Peter Uwer now form a union of scientists with a common interest in the mathematical structures and foundations of quantum field theory and quantum gravity and its relations in particular to arithmetic and algebraic geometry, under the roof of the KMPB (Kolleg Mathematik Physik in the Berlin area).
