Gaspard Monge Program for Optimization, operations research and their interactions with data science (PGMO) was launched in 2012 by EDF and the Jacques Hadamard Mathematical Foundation (FMJH).
The Wolf Prize for Mathematics, the third most prestigious distinction in Mathematics after the Abel Prize and the Fields Medal, has been awarded in 2019 jointly to Jean-Francois Le Gall from the University Paris Sud "for his profound and elegant works on stochastic processes", and to Gregory Lawler from Chicago University.
Campus France agency for international mobility offers joint research programs for Russian and French researcher teams in all scientific domains.
The application of young researchers, doctorates and postdoctorates is welcomed and the involvement of entreprises very much valued.
Financial support runs from the acceptation of the project to December 31st, 2020.
Application deadline: February 28th, 2019
Gregory Lawler and Jean-François Le Gall were awarded the 2019 Wolf Prize in Mathematics. Congratulations!
Jean-François Le Gall is a Professor at Université Paris-Sud, a member of the Laboratoire de mathématiques d’Orsay and a member of the French Académie des sciences.
He is awarded the 2019 Wolf Prize in Mathematics for his deep and elegant works on stochastic processes.
The Wolf Foundation mentions:
Jean-François Le Gall is a Professor at Université Paris-Sud. He is laureate, together with Gregory Lawler, Professor at Chicago University, of the 2019 Wolf Prize in Mathematics.
Would you tell us about your research work?
In 2019, the French Académie des Sciences will award two awards in one of the following scientific and technological fields:
- Digital transformation in industry,
- Engineering for the energy and the environment,
- Materials and manufacturing.
The prizes are awarded to a scientist working in France, or elsewhere in Europe in close collaboration with a French team. There is however no citizenship requirement.
Model theory is a branch of mathematical logic. Its modern history dates back to 1962. There is a way of measuring the size of the objects of model theory. At the end of the 1970s, the mathematicians Cherlin and Zilber made a conjecture concerning this size issue. While the logicians' community was starting to doubt the veracity of the conjecture, Olivier Frécon recently proved that the conjecture is true in an important particular case.
Campus France agency for international mobility offers two programs in all scientific disciplines:
- The Brancusi program with Romania aims at developping scientific and technological exchanges between France and Romania, notably new cooperations and collaborations including young researchers.
Funding is granted for two consecutive years and should be dedicated to mobility itself (subsistence allowances for Romanian researches; travel expenses of the French team).

In 1949, the Hungarian mathematician István Sándor Gál, then research associate (attaché de recherche) at the CNRS, publishes the demonstration of a conjecture dating back to the 1930s, concerning the maximum size of a quantity of arithmetic nature belonging to a large family whose elements are now called "sums of Gál type". Not until the works of Lewko et Radziwiłł in 2017 was this result specified in the particular case considered by Gál.
Poincaré-Koebe's theorem of uniformization enables to build a geometrical classification of surfaces. In 1984, Beauville and Bomogolov generalized this classification by considering a subset of varieties of greater dimensions: compact Kähler manifolds with trivial canonical bundle. In a recent work, F. Loray, J.V. Pereira and F. Touzet give a foliated version of this generalisation. Their paper describes the structure of singular codimension one foliations with numerically trivial canonical bundle on complex projective manifolds.
