Since the early works of Moreno in the 30s, graph's analysis has become an intensive area of research which is no longer limitated to sociology. Indeed, the presence of a large range of data on the form of graphs is available in our numeric world. Besides, impressive progress has been performed in the modelling and analysis of these data.

The ERC announced the awarding of its Consolidator Grants to 314 top researchers in Europe. The funding, worth a total of €605 million, will give them a chance to have far-reaching impact on science and beyond. The grants fall under the 'Excellent Science' pillar of Horizon 2020, the EU's research and innovation programme.

5 French Mathematicians were awarded a ERC Consolidator Grant:

A chaos far wilder than expected

Dynamical systems appear in various domains such as fluid mechanics, economy or ecology. Such systems consist in a phase space which parametrizes a system and in evolution laws which describe the evolution of this system. The first examples of dynamical systems come from celestial mechanics, where the phase space consists in the set of positions and speed of each of the planets, and the evolution laws are given by the differential equations of Newton's fundamental principle.
