Asymptotics in integrable systems, random matrices and random processes and universality

The principal goal of Random Matrix Theory (RMT) is the description of the statistical properties of the eigenvalues or singular values of ensembles of matrices with random entries subject to some chosen distribution, in particular when the size of the matrix becomes very large. The statistical distributions that occur in this regime of large sizes display some features which are very robust in the sense that they appear rather independently of the distribution chosen for the matrix entries.| Read more

Election at the American Academy of Arts and Sciences

The CRM congratulates Gérard Ben Arous, chairman of the CRM International Scientific Advisory Committee, and director of the Courant Institute for his election to the American Academy of Arts and Sciences on April 22, 2015.

According to Luc Vinet, Director of the CRM, this important recognition shows the very high quality of the achievements of the president of the International Scientific Advisory Committee. We therefore take this opportunity to extend our warm thanks for his leadership as head of the Committee and his highly appreciated contributions to the development of the CRM.

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

The Centre de Recherches Mathématiques Congratulates the Three Canada Research Chairs

The CRM is proud to announce that Karim Jerbi (PhysNum), Gilles Brassard (Professor in the Department of Computer Science and Operations Research of the Faculté des arts et des sciences, member of the CRM) and François Lalonde (Professor in the Department of Mathematics and Statistics of the Faculté des arts et des sciences, member of the CRM and of CIRGET | Read more

Octav Cornea (Université de Montréal) and Henri Darmon (McGill University) selected as Simons Fellows in Mathematics

Two CRM members, Octav Cornea (CIRGET) and Henri Darmon (CICMA), have recently been selected as Simons Fellows in Mathematics by the Simons Foundation. The 40 awardees in Mathematics for 2015 (four from Canadian universities and the rest from the United States) are distinguished mathematicians at all levels of their respective careers. One of them has been awarded the Fields Medal.

According to the Simons Foundation website: "The Fellows Programs provide funds to faculty for up to a semester long research leave from classroom teaching and administrative obligations. Such leaves can increase creativity and provide intellectual stimulation."

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 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.
