The Heidelberg Laureate Forum Foundation invites you to visit the exhibition “Mathematics of Planet Earth” at Karlstorbahnhof in Heidelberg, Germany! It runs from July 5 to Aug 2, 2015, for the first time in Heidelberg. It offers a big variety of exciting adventures for children and adults alike.

“Mathematics of Planet Earth” is an international exhibition that shows exhibits and programs concerning the question, how mathematics can (and does) play a role in solving esssential problems of our planet. In programs, visualizations and hands-on experiments you can discover its contribution to topics like astronomy, fluid dynamics, volcanism, glaciers or cartography.

This exhibition is organized by Heidelberg Laureate Forum Foundation (HLFF), which came to life in 2013 by joint efforts of Klaus Tschira Stiftung (KTS) and Heidelberg Institut for Theoretical Studies (HITS). The Forum brings together awardees of the most important prizes in mathematics and comuter science, like Abel Prize, Fields Medal, incl. Nevanlinna-Prize and ACM A. M. Turing-Award, and 200 of the world’s best young academics in these fields. Further, HLFF wants to raise public awareness in the disciplines mathematics and computer science, as well as sustainably strengthen interest in these subjects.
