Phase portraits are not only a versatile instrument for analysists to read off properties of complex functions, they are also for non-experts enjoyable to watch. Our mathemactical calendar shows beautiful pictures from this complex function world and explains some background. Each picture is connected to a famous mathematician, and we also give information about these peronalities.

This is the team behind the math calendar 2016: Elias Wegert, Gunter Semmler (Technical University Bergakademie Freiberg), Pamela Gorkin and Ulrich Daepp (Bucknell University).
