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 French National Centre for Scientific Research (CNRS) and Nanyang Technological University (NTU) in Singapore are launching a joint call intended to fund up to 3 years of a PhD fellowship or a postdoctoral fellowship in the frame of joint research projects.
Application deadline : April, 10th.
On March 14th, 2019 at Université Paris-Descartes, the French Minister for National Education and Youth Jean-Michel Blanquer and the CEO of the CNRS Antoine Petit signed a letter of intent regarding the launching of Mathematics Year in 2019/2020.
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.
In a recent work, Quentin Mérigot, Jocelyn Meyron and Boris Thibert developed an algorithm which enables to conceive and to build a whole series of optical components, lenses or mirrors, capable of transferring light radiation in an optimal and precise way. Their work is based on new numerical methods which prove very efficient to solve certain optimal transport problems.

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.
