Awards for Outstanding Performance at the Institute for Mathematics

This year's second place for the Faculty Award for Outstanding Teaching went to Dr. Jörg Enders for his courses Analysis I and II. The nominating stundents praised the thought-out structure of the course, the effort put into the course content and the intensive exchange between the students and Dr. Enders.

Matti Richter received the Leopold von Buch Award for his excellent performance in his bachelor thesis. In his bachelor thesis on harmonic functions, he managed to transfer the techniques developed for differential operators to the case of graphs, thus substantially generalizing the work of Fields medalist and Abel Prize winner Grigori Alexandrovich Margulis. This achievement is exceptional for a bachelor's thesis and has already been recognized by the Berlin Mathematical Society with an award.
