Erlangen is a Middle Franconian city in Bavaria, Germany. It is located north-west of Nürnberg at the confluence of the river Regnitz and its large tributary, the Schwabach. Erlangen has more than 100.000 inhabitants.
As of 2015 Erlangen is dominated by the University of Erlangen-Nürnberg and the numerous branch offices of Siemens AG, as well as a large research Institute of the Fraunhofer Society and the Max Planck Institute for the Science of Light. An event that left its mark on the city was the settlement of Huguenots after the revocation of the Edict of Nantes in 1685.
Felix Klein‘s Erlangen program of 1872, considering the future of research in mathematics, is so called because Klein then
taught at the University of Erlangen-Nürnberg.
