Ulrich Müller-Funk

from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Ulrich Müller-Funk (born October 4, 1947 in Stuttgart ) is a German mathematician and business computer scientist as well as professor emeritus for quantitative methods at the Westphalian Wilhelms University in Münster .


Müller-Funk studied mathematics and economics at the Albert-Ludwigs-Universität Freiburg from 1968 to 1976 . He received his diploma in mathematics in 1975. He wrote his diploma thesis on the subject of Asymptotics of Conditional Tests . His doctorate as Dr. rer. nat. took place in 1980 also at the University of Freiburg. The thesis was entitled Sequential Signed Rank Statistics and Their Applications to Sequential Significance Tests . She was awarded the Goedecke Research Prize. 1986 followed, also in Freiburg, his habilitation to the Dr. rer. nat. habil. with a license to teach mathematics.

After his habilitation, Müller-Funk went to Münster. From 1987 to 1990 Müller-Funk held a professorship there in the department of mathematics and computer science at the Westphalian Wilhelms University of Münster. In 1990 he moved to the Faculty of Business and Economics, where he took over the professorship for quantitative methods at the Institute for Information Systems from 1990 until his retirement in 2013. During this time he was u. a. Dean of the Faculty of Business and Economics (1999–2000), Vice Rector for Strategic Planning, Personnel Development and Evaluation (2002–2006) and Director of the European Research Center for Information Systems (ERCIS) (2004–2013).

Müller-Funk's main research areas are:

  • Data analysis and information mining
  • Nonparametric Statistics
  • Stop problems


  • Goedecke Research Prize 1980
