Stefan Müller-Stach (born February 13, 1962 in Friedrichshafen ) is a German mathematician who deals with algebraic and arithmetic geometry.

Life and education

Müller-Stach went to school in Ingolstadt and from 1982 studied mathematics at the University of Munich and the University of Bayreuth , where he obtained his diploma in 1987 and received his doctorate in 1989 under Thomas Peternell ( an application of the classification theory of projective varieties to compactifications of C3 ). He was a post-doctoral student at the University of Utah, Harvard University, the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) and the University of Pisa. From 1992 he was an assistant at the University of Essen (with Hélène Esnault and Eckart Viehweg ), where he completed his habilitation in 1996. From 1998 to 2003 he was a Heisenberg fellow. In 1999/2000 he was a visiting scientist at the Max Planck Institute for Mathematics in Bonn. In 2002/3 he was professor at McMaster University , in 2003 he was visiting professor at the Fourier Institute in Grenoble and in 2003 he became professor of number theory at Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz . From 2012 to 2014 he was Dean there and has been Vice President for Research and Young Academics since April 2017.

He is particularly concerned with algebraic K-theory , motivic cohomology , periods and Hodge theory .

Moritz Kerz is one of his doctoral students .

From 2008 to 2012 he was the managing editor of the mathematical semester reports. From 2012 to 2020 he was elected to review board 312 Mathematics of the German Research Foundation for two terms and has been its spokesman since 2016.
