August 31 - September 4, 2015 at the CRM

Conference on Topology, Geometry and Dynamics in Honour of François Lalonde

Honouring Francois Lalonde's mathematical contributions, this conference aims to foster interaction among the fields of topology, geometry and dynamics. Subjects that are in rapid development and will be reflected in the talks include, among others, various facets of symplectic topology, Hamiltonian dynamics, spectral theory and semi-classical analysis.  | Read more

Workshop – September 14 - 16, 2015 at CRM

AdS/CFT and Quantum Gravity

Over the last fifteen years, our understanding of quantum gravity in string theory has been transformed by the discovery and exploitation of D-branes and the AdS/CFT correspondence in string theory. | Read more

Creation of a new laboratory

MILA is Headed by Yoshua Bengio

The CRM is proud to announce that MILA (Montreal Institute for Learning Algorithms) is now a CRM laboratory. MILA is headed by Dr. Yoshua Bengio, a world leader in the field of machine learning. Dr. Bengio is a professor in the Department of computer science and operations research at the Université de Montréal and holds two research chairs. Dr. Bengio has been a member of the Statistics Laboratory of the CRM for many years. The integration of MILA within the CRM is part of the long-standing strategy of the CRM, whose aim is to gather Québec researchers from all the mathematical sciences into an institute. Indeed artificial intelligence and machine learning are dynamic and ever-expanding disciplines, as shown by the summer school organized by MILA and CRM this summer and that will be attended by close to two hundred participants. 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.

2015 André Aisenstadt Prize in Mathematics Recipient

Louis-Pierre Arguin, Université de Montréal and the City University of New York (Baruch College and Graduate Center)

The International Scientific Advisory Committee of the Centre de recherches mathématiques (CRM) is happy to announce that Louis-Pierre Arguin from the Université de Montréal and the City University of New York (Baruch College and Graduate Center) is the 2015 André Aisenstadt Prize recipient. | Read more

2015 CRM-SSC Prize Recipient

Matìas Salibián-Barrera (University of British Columbia)

To Matíass Salibián-Barrera for his fundamental contributions to the field of robust statistics, for the introduction of influential new methodology such as the fast and robust bootstrap and the fast S-estimator for robust regression, and for his breakthrough innovations in efficient computational algorithms for robust procedures. | Read more

Thematic Semester — June - December 2015
AdS/CFT, Holography, Integrability

The Anti-de-Sitter/Conformal Field Theory (AdS/CFT) correspondence has been dominating research in theoretical high-energy physics for the last 15 years. It posits an exact quantum equivalence between string theory as a theory of quantum gravity on negatively curved space-times and certain conformal quantum field theories defined on the boundary of these space-times.  | Read more

2015 André-Aisenstadt Mathematics Prize - Call for Nominations

The CRM solicits nominations for the André-Aisenstadt Mathematics Prize awarded to recognize talented young Canadian mathematicians. The deadline to submit a nomination has been extended until April 1, 2015. | 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.
