Workshop - February 22, 2018 at UQAM


As for the first edition (Levy15), the main objective of this workshop is to provide an opportunity for people with an interest in ruin theory to get an overview of recent research activities and have discussions on the topic. | Read more

Workshop - February 23, 2018 at the CRM


The primary aim of this workshop is to provide a venue for academics to meet and discuss their latest research topics in the broad area of insurance mathematics and its related disciplines (e.g. mathematical finance, applied probability and statistics, quantitative risk management). The workshop is intended to cover a broad scope of research interests in the general area of actuarial science. In this year's edition some emphasis will be put on new technologies and their impact in the insurance sector. | Read more

The winner of the 2018 CRM - Fields - PIMS Prize is Professor Jeremy Quastel of the University of Toronto

Jeremy Quastel is widely recognized as one of the top probabilists in the world, having made major advances in the fields of hydrodynamic theory, stochastic partial differential equations, and integrable probability. | Read more

French research visits for CRM scientists

During the French president’s visit to Québec in November 2014, the CRNS and the FRQNT signed an agreement to provide financial support to the three CNRS Unités Mixtes Internationales (UMI) based in Québec. | Read more

CRM research visits for French scientists

The CRM is soliciting applications from French researchers who wish to pursue their research in Montréal in 2018 or 2019, under the auspices of its partnership with France's Conseil national de la recherche scientifique. | Read more







Iovita and Radziwill from CICMA at ICM

Two members of the Laboratoire CICMA have been invited to present their work in the number theory section of the International Congress of Mathematicians, which will be held in Rio in 2018: Adrian Iovita (Concordia) and Maksym Radziwill (McGill). Congratulations to Adrian and Maksym on this recognition of their superb research achievements of the past years, which brings credit to the CRM and to the laboratoire CICMA. Several former CICMA postdocs also figure among the roster of invited speakers, notably Fabrizio Andreatta, Kaisa Matomaki, and James Maynard. | The ICM


The Simons Foundation has awarded the Centre de Recherches Mathématiques (CRM), a grant of $976,320 (USD) for 5 years to develop a Simons CRM Scholar program. | Read more

A Message from Canada's Mathematical Sciences Institutes for Canada's Fundamental Science Review

The Mathematical Sciences are the foundation of any advanced research ecosystem, and Canada’s mathematical sciences institutes have been instrumental in supporting this ecosystem. They do so by providing scientific leadership, by developing coherent national strategies for mathematical and statistical discovery and innovation, by transcending geographic and disciplinary barriers, by maximizing provincial leveraging, by spearheading international partnerships, and by connecting the research enterprise with the imperatives of providing training and education at all levels. | 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.

Montreal Institute for Learning Algorithms (MILA)
Artificial intelligence and machine learning are dynamic and ever-expanding disciplines. The incorporation of MILA into the CRM will give the CRM a more important role within the so-called “digital strategy” of the Québec government.

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.
