The 2019 Montreal-Toronto Workshop in Number Theory - March 22-24, 2019

PERIOD MAPS: The purpose of this instructional workshop is to provide a gentle introduction into the fascinating area of period maps. The first part will be devoted to the classical theory of periods over the complex numbers. Some of the topics we wish to discuss would be Hodge structures and their variations, Griffiths' transversality, key examples and mixed Hodge modules. | Read more

Program : New developments in Free Probability and Applications - March 22-24, 2019

The thematic one-month program New Developments in Free Probability and Applications, to be held at the CRM in March 2019, will highlight the depth and beauty of Free Probability theory as well as the various connections with other fields. | Read more

Free Probability: the applied perspective - March 25 - 29, 2019

The second workshop will be more dedicated to the applications of free probability. In particular, we expect to discuss applications to random matrices, non-commutative probability, quantum information, telecommunications, finance, matrix integrals, theoretical physics. | Read more

Mila – Quebec Institute of Artificial Intelligence officially inaugurated its new premises on January 28, 2019 at the O Mile-Ex complex, in the presence of the Minister of Economy and Innovation for the government of Quebec, Pierre Fitzgibbon, and more than 200 partners and players in the Quebec artificial intelligence ecosystem. | Read more

Mathematician Walter Craig dies

The mathematician Walter Craig, a member of the CRM Advisory Board from 2002 to 2006, a speaker at the CRM-ISM Colloquium in 2005, organizer of various CRM workshops, co-organizer of the 2018 thematic semester in Dynamical Systems and Evolution Equations at the CRM, and of the SMS in 2008, and Director of the Fields Institute died on January 18 2019 following a long fight against cancer. A celebration of life will be held on Saturday, March 16th at McMaster University. | More information | Fields Institute

The CRM welcomes the Montreal Declaration for a Responsible Development of Artificial Intelligence

The Centre de recherches mathématiques welcomes the Montreal Declaration for a Responsible Development of Artificial Intelligence unveiled on December 4, 2018. The CRM, partner of MILA and IVADO, endorses this statement. One of its objectives is "to promote the digital transition so that everyone can benefit from this technological revolution". To this end, the CRM, in collaboration with CIRANO, has recently been mandated by the Quebec government to develop a national initiative to increase numeracy. | Read more

2019 CRM-Fields-PIMS Prize Recipient - Nassif Ghoussoub (UBC)

GhoussoubThe 2019 CRM-Fields-PIMS Prize is awarded to Nassif Ghoussoub of the University of British Columbia (UBC). The prize was given by a high-level international committee chosen by the three institutes. The announcement was made at the Awards Banquet of the Canadian Mathematical Society Winter Meeting in Vancouver on December 9, 2018. | Read more

The CRM condemns all forms of harassment

The CRM management has recently become aware of the numerous allegations that Yuval Peres has consistently engaged in sexual harassment and related inappropriate behaviour toward junior researchers, including students, over a long stretch of his career. Multiple women have come forward publicly, in some but not all cases anonymously, to state that Yuval Peres sexually harassed them in a professional setting. Yuval Peres has been invited to the CRM on several occasions, including as a holder of an André-Aisenstadt Chair. The CRM management were unaware of the above allegations at the time the invitations were made. We feel compelled to state unequivocally that the CRM condemns such behaviour; it has no place within our community. | Read more


The Simons Foundation has awarded the Centre de Recherches Mathématiques (CRM), a grant of $976,320 (USD) for 5 years to develop a Simons CRM Scholar program. | Read more

CRM Laboratories

Mathematical Analysis
Both classical and central to modern mathematics, mathematical analysis lies at the core of our understanding of any continuous system. The mathematical analysis laboratory has undertaken in-depth studies of dynamical systems, partial differential equations and spectra of operators.

The objective of CAMBAM (Center for Applied Mathematics in Bioscience and Medicine) is the application of mathematics to address biological challenges across all levels of biological organisation ranging from the molecular/genetic through single cell and whole organ physiology to population and ecosystem dynamics.

CICMA is an inter-university research center officially established in 1989. Its research activities are concentrated on number theory, arithmetic geometry, computational algebra and sporadic finite groups.

CIRGET is a joint force of researchers at the cutting-edge of international research in differential geometry, topology, geometric group theory and mathematical physics.

GIREF gathers researchers and research groups from several academic institutions in order to facilitate research, development, training of specialists and interaction with the industrial circles in the field of modeling an numeric simulation.

Founded in 1982, LaCIM is one of the principal research center in combinatorics, algebraic combinatorics and theoretical computer science on the international scene.

Applied Mathematics
As a result of state-of-the-art computational resources, it has become possible to simulate problems and figure solutions that we only dreamed of a decade ago. This has been a driving force in the creation of this laboratory.

Mathematical Physics
Mathematical physics represents one of the traditional strengths of the CRM since the beginning of the 1970's. Research focus on several of the most active scientific areas in mathematical physics.

Montreal Institute for Learning Algorithms (MILA)
Artificial intelligence and machine learning are dynamic and ever-expanding disciplines. The incorporation of MILA into the CRM will give the CRM a more important role within the so-called “digital strategy” of the Québec government.

The work of PhysNum is focused on cerebral imaging and its method. Started within a collaboration with INSERM (Hôpital Pitié-Salpêtrière) and the Institut universitaire de gériatrie de Montréal, this trend took shape during the study of reconstruction signals in magnetoencephalographic problems.

Probability lab members pursue research in a broad range of areas, spanning theoretical and applied, continuous and discrete probability. A particular focus is on the development and analysis of probabilistic models for real-world phenomena from physics, biology, statistics and computer science.

The Actuarial and Financial Mathematics Laboratory is an inter-university group of researchers focused on the mathematics of actuarial science and finance. Its research activities are concentrated on the applications of probabilistic and statistical techniques to analyze random events with financial impact.

Statistics is central to many endeavours in society. Whether it be through surveys from sampling, clinical trials to study various biomedical treatments or experimental designs in agriculture or industry, statistical methodology can be found everywhere in science. The statistics laboratory rallies a great number of statisticians from Eastern Canada.
