                  Combinatorics, Geometry, and Computation

In the newly established graduate program two-year scholarships for 

are available in Berlin starting January 1st, 2001. Applicants should have 
a degree in mathematics, computer science, or a related area equivalent to 
the German university diploma (e.g. M.S.) with grades significantly above 

The program is a joint initiative of the ETH Zurich, the three universities
of Berlin - Free University, Technical University, Humboldt-University - and 
the Konrad-Zuse-Research Center. The German partners are financially suppor-
ted by the German Research association (Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft,
DFG). The amount of the scholarships in Berlin is calculated according to 
the guidelines of the DFG and is up to DM 2890 per month, tax free (family 
supplement DM 400).

The scientific program ranges from theoretical fundamentals to applications.
The areas of research are combinatorics, geometry, optimization, algorithms
and computation. In Berlin the students are supervised by the professors 
Aigner, Alt, Rote, Schulz (FU), Moehring, Ziegler (TU), Proemel (HU) and 
Groetschel (ZIB). 

Applications with curriculum vitae, copies of certificates, theses, a letter 
of recommendation of the last advisor and a brief description of the proposed 
research should be sent until November 8, 2000 to the speaker 
of the program in Berlin:
