Workshop – September 15 - 19 at CRM

Statistics and Number Theory

The workshop will explore statistical aspects of various questions in number theory. One theme concerns statistics of zeros of L-functions, which since the work of Montgomery, are known to display striking similarities to the statistics of eigenvalues of random matrices. | Read more

Sabin Cautis Winner of the 2014 André Aisenstadt Prize in Mathematics to give a talk

The International Scientific Advisory Committee of the Centre de recherches mathématiques (CRM) is happy to announce that Sabin Cautis from the University of British Columbia is the 2014 André Aisenstadt Prize recipient. |  Read more | Details about the talk |  Announcement

Daniel Wise elected to the Royal Society of Canada - Class of 2014

Daniel Wise, Professor at McGill University and a member of the CRM, has been elected to the Royal Society of Canada. He is one of the two mathematicians in the 2014 class of fellows. Professor Wise is cited for his fundamental contributions to geometric group theory and low dimensional topology that "...stand at the core of the most important development in geometry and topology since the proof of the Poincaré Conjecture, namely the proof of Thurston’s virtually fibered conjecture for hyperbolic three-manifolds." | RSC Class of 2014

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 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

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.
