Jörg Brüdern (born August 1, 1962 in Salzgitter ) is a German mathematician who deals with analytical number theory.


Brüdern studied mathematics , theoretical physics and astronomy at the University of Göttingen and Oxford University from 1982 . After completing his diploma in 1986, he received his doctorate in 1988 in Göttingen with Samuel Patterson ( iteration methods in additive number theory ) and in 1991 he completed his habilitation there ( Sieves, the circle method and Waring's problem for cubes ). From 1994 to 2009 he was a professor at the University of Stuttgart . There he was dean of the mathematics faculty and, from 2002, managing director of the Institute for Algebra and Number Theory. From 2003 to 2006 he was Vice Rector of the University for Research and Technology. Since 2009 he has been a professor at the University of Göttingen.

He deals with analytical and additive number theory ( Waring's problem , circle method) and combinatorics.

In 1992 he received the Oberwolfach Prize . Valentin Blomer was one of his PhD students .

He is a full member of the Göttingen Academy of Sciences .
