Theoretical Sciences

Close cooperation between mathematics, theoretical physics, and business administration and economics (especially the Institute of Mathematical Economics) has a long tradition in Bielefeld that has produced a series of major collaborative projects. Important current research interests in the theoretical sciences are spectral structures and topological methods, stochastics and modelling of real systems, economic behaviour and interaction models, and the theory of quantum fields and strongly interacting matter.

The BGTS is part of the university's strategic research area The Mathematical World: Regular and Irregular Structures.
