friedrich – our research magazine
friedrich is FAU’s research magazine and is published once a year.
The topic of this issue (German) is ‘views of the world’. For hundreds of years, when trying to find universal views of the world, scientists had to rely mainly on what they saw. Today astroparticle physicists, for example, are primarily concerned with what we can’t see. The current issue also looks at foreign worlds, world politics and the world of tomorrow.

alexander is published several times a year. It covers all aspects of university life – research, teaching and study, and internal affairs.
