A special mini symposium on “Mathematics of Planet Earth” will be held at the ÖMG-DMV-Conference in Innsbruck, Austria. It is organized by Gert-Martin Greuel, Technische Universität Kaiserslautern, and Andreas Daniel Matt, Mathematisches Forschungsinstitut Oberwolfach, and will show various techniques and examples of how mathematics can help us to tackle problems of our planet – from climate systems to geomaths, from mathematical biology to finance systems.
