Grande conférence publique de Chris Danforth – November 20, 2014

Measuring Emotional States in Real-Time

Our happiness depends on where we are, who we are with, and what we are doing. By analyzing a diverse set of large-scale texts which reflect cultural experience, including 50 years of music lyrics, thousands of works of literature, and 50 billion status updates from Twitter, we have built a scientific instrument that quantifies population-scale happiness. | Read more | Register

December 8-12, 2014 at CRM

New approaches in probabilistic and multiplicative number theory

Probabilistic number theory was born in a famous collaboration of Erdös and Kac. Nowadays the use of classical probabilistic techniques in number theory is abundant. | Read more

December 15-18, 2014 at CRM

New Horizons in Copula Modeling

The objective of this workshop is to take stock of new developments in copula modeling, to bring together some of the most active researchers in the field, and to identify the current challenges in dependence modeling faced in areas such as economics, health sciences, and the environment, where the copula approach to modeling is emerging. | Read more

Award of an NSERC Grant to the CRM

The Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC) has awarded a grant of $1.15 million per year to the  Centre de recherches mathématiques (CRM) for a five-year period starting in 2014. This award was made within the framework of the first competition of the CTRSMS Program (Collaborative and Thematic Resources Support in Mathematics and Statistics). | Read more

2014 CRM-SSC Prize Recipient

Fang Yao: Winner of the CRM-SSC Prize in Statistics

To Fang Yao, for his foundational, influential and trail-blazing research in the field of functional data analysis; for exploring fruitful connections between longitudinal and functional data, and for demonstrating ways in which tools from the more traditional fields of nonparametric statistics can be successfully leveraged in FDA research. | Read more

2014 CAP-CRM Prize Recipient

The 2014 CAP-CRM Prize to Mark Van Raamsdonk (UBC)

The Canadian Association of Physicists (CAP) and the Centre de recherches mathématiques (CRM) are pleased to announce that the 2014 CAP-CRM Prize In Theoretical And Mathematical Physics is awarded to Prof. Mark Van Raamsdonk, University of British Columbia, for his highly original, influential contributions to several areas of theoretical physics, including string theory, quantum field theory, and quantum gravity. | 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

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.
