Mathematics Stories from Kaiserslautern, Germany

We are happy to have the opportunity to report on the mathematics in Kaiserslautern here on the blog for a two-week period as an ECMI node. To start with, we would like to introduce you to our mathematical young talents from Kaiserslautern.

Video Series: »Tell Us Your Lautrer Math Story!« – PhD and Students at the Mathematics Location Kaiserslautern

Kaiserslautern – a medium-sized, charming city in the Palatinate Forest. What many people don’t know: Pioneering technologies are developed on our unique Science Mile, with international appeal. Of course, this is also due to the attractive location: The Rhineland-Palatinate Technical University Kaiserslautern-Landau (RPTU) with its excellent mathematics department and the world’s largest institute for industrial mathematics, the Fraunhofer ITWM, are within walking distance. Students and doctoral candidates benefit from these synergies.

In addition to the supervision by professors of the RPTU, the students at the Fraunhofer ITWM gain practical experience as well as academic expertise by combining their doctoral thesis with concrete industrial problems. In our video series, mathematicians from Kaiserslautern tell us their math story, two short videos you can find here below. You can watch all videos from the series on our website here:

Video Series: Stories of Mathematicians From Kaiserslautern

»The location Kaiserslautern is of course especially interesting for mathematicians.« In addition to our institute, this is also due to the excellent teaching in the department of »Mathematics« at the Rhineland-Palatinate Technical University Kaiserslautern-Landau (RPTU). The university also supports students during their doctoral studies.
PhD students at Fraunhofer ITWM are also involved in real research projects from the very beginning, but at the same time they have enough time for their dissertation. By linking the doctoral thesis to concrete industrial problems, the PhD students gain practical experience in addition to academic expertise. In the latest video, Maxime Krier and Firoozeh Aga give insights into their Lautrer math story and on the topic of »Doing a PhD at Kaiserslautern«.
»I think the bridge between science and business is totally interesting«, says Milena Röhrs in her Lautrer math story. She is currently a math student at the RPTU. The Fraunhofer ITWM was an important location factor for her to start her studies in Kaiserslautern. In addition, the performance of the university’s department in the relevant rankings. She also has a job in the field of mathematics besides her current studies, working for Prof. Dr. Bernd Simeon in the Department of Mathematics.
