Lie Theory and Mathematical Physics

There has always been a close and extremely fruitful interaction between Lie theory and mathematical physics --- an old example is Gell-Mann's flavour symmetry using the representation theory of the Lie algebra su_3. | Read more.

Niki Kamran is the 2014 CRM-Fields-PIMS Prize Recipient

The Canadian Mathematical Sciences Institutes are pleased to announce that the winner of the CRM - Fields - PIMS Prize for 2014 is Professor Niky Kamran of McGill University. | Read more

Thematic Semester — January - June 2014

New Directions in Lie Theory

The goal of the semester is to highlight recent advances in these and related fields and to foster interaction and collaboration between both young and established researchers working in these areas. Winter schools will be aimed at graduate students and postdoctoral fellows, while workshops will serve as a venue for the dissemination and discussion of cutting edge research in Lie theory. | Read more

Thematic Year — 2014 - 2015

Number Theory from Arithmetic Statistics to Zeta Elements

Number theory enjoys a privileged position within Mathematics as a fertile source of fundamental questions. Among the seven Millenium problems listed by the Clay Institute, not less than three—the Birch and Swinnerton-Dyer conjecture, the Hodge conjecture, and the Riemann hypothesis—were handed down by the Queen of Mathematics. | Read more

MPE2013 Moves into Mathematics of Planet Earth

The successful year-long initiative will continue past 2013

On January 1, 2014, the international project “Mathematics of Planet Earth 2013” (MPE2013) will continue as “Mathematics of Planet Earth” (MPE). The objectives remain unchanged – identify fundamental research questions about Planet Earth and reach out to the general public. | 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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
