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.

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 objective of the Actuarial and Financial Mathematics laboratory is to promote and coordinate the research activities in actuarial mathematics and mathematical finance. It regroups researchers from Eastern Canada that are at the cutting edge of international research in actuarial mathematics and statistics, the analysis of social programs, computational and quantitative finance, financial risk management, insurance risk models and retirement benefits.

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.

The twelve CRM Research Laboratories are where a substantial part of the Canadian research effort in the mathematical sciences takes place. They span 12 universities in Quebec and Ontario (Montreal, McGill, UQÀM, Concordia, Laval, Sherbrooke, École Polytechnique, HEC, UQTR, Ottawa, Carleton, Queen's). Each of the laboratories hosts an average of 20 professors, 50 graduate students, and 7 postdoctoral fellows, organizes workshops and inter-university seminars on a regular basis, and coordinates a unified graduate school (involving five, six or seven universities), with funding coming from a wide variety of sources. The dedicated involvement of lab members in the CRM's activities is a driving force in bringing leading scientists to the Center. It also ensures that students and postdoctoral fellows receive an excellent preparation for the thematic programs, through special advanced courses, mini-courses, and student seminars. These labs are the most effective way to transfer the results of our international programming to Canadian scientists.
