Institute for Mathematical Stochastics


The Institute for Mathematical Stochastics (IMS) was founded in 1918 (at the time as the Institute for Mathematical Statistics and Insurance Mathematics) by Felix Bernstein, encouraged by David Hilbert. Today, the IMS features six research groups focusing on varoius areas of probability theory and mathematical statistics with strong interactions to bio- and life sciences and the Felix-Bernstein Institute for Mathematical Statistics in the Biosciences.

In addition to a basic curriculum in probability, mathematical statistics and insurance mathematics for the Bachelor/Master Degree Programms in Mathematics and the newly founded Bachelor Degree Programme Mathematical Data Science, the IMS provides PhD training in "Mathematical Sciences" (within the GAUSS program), amongst others in the Reseach Training Group 2088 and varoius Collaborative Research Centres funded by the DFG.
