As a leading expert in algebraic and differential topology, Michael Weiss enjoys an outstanding international reputation. One of his greatest achievements is proving the Mumford conjecture, a mathematical problem that extends into many areas of the discipline. At the University of Münster, Weiss is to take on a new professorship in mathematics and strengthen geometric research in Münster, as well as helping the university join the world’s leading institutes in topology.
