A new mathematics museum is taking shape in Paris

Submitted by Insmi on Mon, 02/05/2018 - 15:35

A place for research, sharing, conveying knowledge and communicating, the future Maison des mathématiques, which is also dedicated to theoretical physics, is located in the heart of Paris, in an exceptional building belonging to Sorbonne Université, one with a rich history and dedicated to scientific teaching and research.

Affiliated to the Institut Henri Poincaré (CNRS/Sorbonne Université), in spring 2020 it will settle into the former premises of the Laboratoire de chimie physique - matière et rayonnement (CNRS/Sorbonne Université), created by Jean Perrin, recipient of the Noble Prize in Physics in 1926 and founder of the CNRS.

The future Maison des mathématiques will respond to the public’s desire to understand scientific phenomena, discover what mathematics represents in the world we live in, ponder abstract concepts, and dream with a discipline that is constantly moving.
