The institute’s mission is to conduct project-oriented research in applied analysis and applied stochastics, in order to contribute to the solution of complex economic, scientific, and technological problems. Research work at WIAS comprises the entire process of problem solution, from the mathematical modeling to the development of algorithms and to the numerical simulation of technological processes.
WIAS is organized into seven research groups, a Young Scientists' Group (YSG) and Leibniz Group (LG):
Research is focusing on the main application areas
Consulting offers for potential collaboration partners can be found on the institute's web pages. Representatives from industry are welcome to present their problems, e.g., in the Institute’s colloquium.
Together with further partners in Berlin, WIAS is running the DFG Research Center MATHEON. The institute is part of numerous local and international research alliances and organizations such as ERCOM (European Research Centers on Mathematics) and IMSI (International Mathematical Sciences Institutes).
Since 2011, WIAS hosts the Secretariat of the International Mathematical Union (IMU).
