The Société Mathématique de France launches a mathematical challenge dedicated to undergraduates and graduates: 10 days to solve 10 mathematical problems, picked among research topics which have not yet yielded publications. A research challenge for younger students! Note that students may compete as teams of 1 to 3 candidates.
Concours SMF junior starts on May 2nd and closes on May 11th: teams may enrol until the last day of the competition. Click here for registration.
The program of the 18th European Women in Mathematics General Meeting will include a series of three lectures by Gigliola Staffilani of MIT and five plenary lectures by Shiri Artstein-Avidan (Israel), Ilse Fischer (Austria), Alice Guionnet (France), Frances Kirwan (UK), Maryna Viazovska (Switzerland and Ukraine).
The Brain Pool Program aims to enhance the R&D level of Korea by injecting foreign scientists with quality experience and knowledge into the domestic R&D field. Through various joint research activities done by researchers from home and abroad, the Program is expected to build long-term international cooperation network.
Laurent Fargues, Jean-François Le Gall, Benoît Perthame et Bertrand Toën, were awarded a ERC Advanced Grant. Congratulations to all four of them!
Julien Jouganous was awarded the 2016 'Le Monde' Research Prize for his PhD entitled Lung metastases growth modeling and simulation, which he did under the supervision of Olivier Saut at the Institut de Mathématiques de Bordeaux (CNRS, Université de Bordeaux, Bordeaux INP), and which he defended on September 2015, 23.
The Norwegian Academy of Science and Letters awards the 2017 Abel Prize to Yves Meyer, Centre de mathématiques et de leurs applications (CMLA, CNRS & École normale supérieure Paris-Saclay), "for his pivotal role in the development of the mathematical theory of wavelets".
Congratulations to this remarkable mathematician !
Sharing Science: towards new horizons
is the motto of the 8th EuroScience Open Forum (ESOF), which will take place in Toulouse (France) in July 2018, 9-14th. Its scientific program will address the following themes:
Descartes' rule is one of the first main result of algebraic geometry. Formulated in 1637 in the appendix entitled "La Géométrie" of the famous "Discours de la Méthode" [S], this rule gives an upper bound of the number of positive roots of a polynomial of one real-valued variable. The formulation of a similar rule for multi-variate polynomials has gone through new developements with the works of Frédéric Bihan and his collaborators who propose in [BD] a new upper bound for the number of roots with positive coordinates.
