It is with great sadness that we announce that Klaus Tschira died unexpectedly on March 31, 2015, aged 74 years.
He was a friend and big supporter of IMAGINARY. His death is a great loss to all who knew him and for science that he so passionately promoted.

The physicist Klaus Tschira was in 1972 a co-founder of the software company SAP, now the world’s largest producer of programs for corporate management. After retiring from business operations in 1998, he founded the Klaus Tschira Foundation, one of the largest private charitable foundations in Europe which is dedicated to the promotion of mathematics, computer science, and the natural sciences. The foundation promotes, among other things, projects of IMAGINARY since 2011. In 2013 Klaus Tschira also founded the Heidelberg Laureate Forum, where Abel, Fields, and Turing Laureates meet the next generation of young scientists.

IMAGINARY is greatly indebted to Klaus Tschira.

Last week Holi was celebrated in India (with a lot of colours) and this week Easter in the Christian world (with equally many colours). Happy celebrations! Easter eggs are very popular within the IMAGINARY team, not the chocolate ones, but the ones you hide within a software program. We hid two Easter eggs in our museum exhibits: one in the MiMa museum in Oberwolfach and one in the MoMath museum in New York. They are...Devamını oku

We are very happy that the user response to the new IMAGINARY platform was so big - too big for our server capacity. Today in the morning we registered 1.3 million accesses on the site (before 11:30 am) and we had to react quickly to shift the website to a new server. This caused several delays and also the platform was not online for about 2 hours. We are very sorry for this! 

Now the platform is up and...Devamını oku
