Paul Nicolai Weiß was awarded the First Prize for excellent theses in teacher training courses 2020 for his scientific work on the subject of "Elementary antiderivatives and the Liouville-Ostrowski theorem" from the Conference of Mathematical Departments. The laudation says: "The work is a very demanding, highly precise and impressive elaboration, which in scope and mathematical depth goes far beyond the usual level of final theses. A difficult and interesting topic is handled very well, references to mathematics lessons are shown and the enthusiasm of the candidate for his topic is directly noticeable."


The Mathematics and Physics Library will reopen on 4 May 2020. Special safety regulations apply.

On initiative of the Family Office the President's Office announces the Corona-Notprogramm Familie (more in German).

Starting from October 2017 and yearly afterwards, the Mathematics Department and the Physics Department at the University of Tübingen are jointly offering an international two year Master Program in Mathematical Physics.

Welcome to the University of Tübingen's Department of Mathematics!

Here at the Department of Mathematics, we live and breathe one of the oldest sciences of all. Both Mathematics and Physics have a long tradition in Tübingen, where they have been taught since the early 16th century. They were a faculty in their own right until 2010, and now Mathematics and Physics are Departments within the University of Tübingen's broad-based Faculty of Science.

Our working groups in Pure and Applied Mathematics cover a wide spectrum of mathematical disciplines. They carry out high-quality research and maintain excellent networks across the University as well as nationally and internationally.

More than one thousand students are currently enroled in our Department. We offer Bachelor's and Master's degree courses with a high level of flexibility. Our Mathematics teacher-training degree is also very popular with students. Doctoral studies and postdoctoral lecture qualifications are available in all the branches of Mathematics represented in our Department. We also provide Mathematics classes to supplement studies in other subjects.
