Events Winter Semester 2019/2020

PhD Seminar and PhD Day

We are happy to introduce you to the talks of our PhD seminar and PhD day!

Next PhD Seminar: 11.02.2020, 16:30-17:00. Philipp Bartmann (Universität Potsdam)

  • We will start with coffee at 16:15!
  • Title: Boundary Regularity for Elliptic Partial Differential Equations
  • Abstract: The behaviour of solutions to elliptic PDE's at the boundary of a domain $\Omega$ depends heavily on the geometry of $\partial\Omega$. One is therefore interested in criteria to $\Omega$ that ensure differentiability, Hölder-continuity or even more regularity up to the boundary.
    We will give a brief overview on the classical results in this regard and introduce an optimal geometric condition - so called $\gamma$-convexity - that guarantees differentiability at the boundary.
Next Social Events:
  • Game night: on February 11th, at 5:30 pm in the common room on the second floor in Haus 9.

    There will be some tea and coffee. Don't forget your own cup to reduce waste.

    You are invited to bring your favourite game, but we heard rumours that we will have at least Zug um Zug, bezzerwizzer (german version), Carcassonne, Wizard, Uno, Skat, Doppelkopf and Rommé. If you want you can also bring your favourite post-doc and/or student.


New here?

If you recently started your Ph.D. at our Institute, please do the following:

  • Add yourself to our PhD student mailing list mathe-doc. (To do this write a request to Mr. Dathe {dathe[at]} or to one of the PhD representatives.)
  • Join us for activities. (Infos are spread over the PhD mailing list.)
  • Participate in our one-per-semester PhD day and in our monthly PhD seminar! Find out what other PhD students are working on or give a talk yourself! 


The current Ph.D. representatives are Florian Fischer and Undine Falkenhagen.

 What do we do?

  • Come to us with any questions, concerns or problems regarding your PhD studies.
  • We represent the group of PhD students in mathematics in the Institutsrat.
  • We organize the PhD day and PhD seminar together with the organizing committee.
  • We organize regular meetings for PhD students.

If you are interested in our events, or if you want to organize one yourself, get on our mailing list "mathe-doc"and/or contact us.
