    Eligibility

    The stipend is 10,000 euros per year.

    The M1 scholarships are open to all students who have completed a bachelor's degree in mathematics (or related) at the end of the academic year 2016-2017. The applicants for the Lebesgue M1 scholarship should certify a B1 level of proficiency of the French language.
    A student applying for the first year of a master (M1) will be allowed to apply for another scholarship for the second year (M2).

    The M2 scholarships are open to all students who have completed the first year of a master in mathematics (or related) at the end of the academic year 2016-2017.
    The courses of the second year of Master (M2) may be taught in English.

    The application of the Lebesgue scholarship is independent from the application to Masters programmes, whom modalities are indicated in the dedicated websites.

    Deadlines

    The application for the lebesgue Master Scholarship is open until March 15th, 2018.
    The results of the selection process will be edited in April 2017.

    Contact

    Applicants can obtain more information about the masters programmes on the page: Information.

    Application

    Applicants must complete the online form and attach the documents:
    - CV
    - Transcripts
    - Cover letter
    - One or more letters of recommendation.

    Applicants must submit the application only when it is complete. Only electronic submission using the online form will be considered.

    Selection

    The selection will be carried out by the Lebesgue Scientific Committee and the heads of the Masters programmes. It will be based on the academic quality of the applicant.

  • School - Masterclass 2017
    Dec 19, 2017 to Dec 21, 2017

    QR-Code

    Angers, from December 19th to December 21st

    Organization board: Etienne Mann

    We organize a masterclass in Angers, from 19th to 21st of December, 2017. Lectures will be in the morning sessions. We will have two parallel sessions:

    • Etienne Mann : Introduction to algebraic stacks
      We will introduce the notion of fibered category, Grothendieck topology and stacks. We will illustrate these notions on simple examples. These lectures are for Master (or PhD) students who had followed a introduction to algebraic geometry that is algebraic varieties and sheaves.
    • Loic Chaumont: Application of the matrix-tree-theorem

    The organisation board will pay the housing with breakfast and the lunches. The dinners are not payed by the organizers. For the travel expenses, we will do our best in the limit of our budget.

    Deadline 15th novembre. Limit 30 participants maximum.

  • Journée Python et Data Science

  • Workshop - Numerical methods for algebraic curves
    Feb 19, 2018 to Feb 23, 2018

    Rennes, from February 19th to February 23rd

    Organization board: Xavier Caruso, David Lubicz, Christophe Ritzenthaler, Marie-Françoise Roy

    This workshop will bring together researchers in complex and real algebraic geometry and applied mathematics (physics and cryptography) to discuss numerical methods and open problems on algebraic curves. There will be a number of introductory talks to each of the following topics and invited lectures from specialists: - Theoretical physics/DPE - Computations with the Jacobian - Random real topology - Complexity of computing topology of real algebraic curves - p-adic methods and applications to cryptography

  • Conference - Mathematics and Enterprises Days
    Apr 12, 2018 to Apr 13, 2018

    Vannes, from April 12th to April 13th

    Organization board: Christophe Berthon, Eric Darrigrand, Emmanuel Frénod, Fabrice Mahé, Loïc Chaumont

    Pour répondre aux besoins croissants en moyens de calcul, les entreprises et les laboratoires de recherche développent intensément de nouvelles méthodes numériques, des logiciels et du matériel. L'objectif de ces journées est de permettre aux différents acteurs d'échanger sur les dernières avancées pour améliorer les performances du calcul scientifique. Des exemples d'applications seront présentés dans plusieurs domaines : auto-apprentissage, consommations électriques, télédétection, biologie...
    Ces journées sont organisées par l’agence Lebesgue de mathématiques pour l'innovation dont une des missions est de promouvoir les relations entre les mathématiciens et les scientifiques des entreprises.
    L’Agence est un interlocuteur naturel pour tout acteur du monde industriel confronté à un problème mathématique identifié. Il s’agit d’offrir les meilleures compétences mathématiques disponibles dans les Unités Mixtes de Recherche en Bretagne et Pays de la Loire, en particulier dans le domaine du calcul scientifique.

  • School - Fundamentals and practice of finite elements
    Apr 16, 2018 to Apr 20, 2018

    Roscoff, from April 16th to April 20th

    Organization board: Martin Costabel, Eric Darrigrand, Monique Dauge, Yvon Lafranche

    Scientific board: Monique Dauge (Univ. Rennes 1), Ilaria Perugia (University of Vienna)

    This school will combine high-level courses on theoretical aspects of finite elements, with more practical implementation issues via an open source C++ library . We propose three different activities:

    1) The three main courses (ca 5h each) given by

    Ricardo Nochetto, University of Maryland, USA
    Adaptive Finite Element Methods: Convergence and Optimality

    Paul Houston, University of Nottingham, UK
    Discontinuous Galerkin Finite Element Methods on Polytopic Meshes

    Ralf Hiptmair, ETH Zürich, Suisse
    Boundary Element Methods: Design, Analysis, and Implementation

    2) An initiation to the finite element library XLiFE++ by Eric Lunéville, POEMS team, ENSTA ParisTech, followed by several practical sessions on computers.

    3) A few mini-courses about different related questions (eigenvalues, integral equations, fast methods, singularities) given by members of the organization board.

Thematic semester 2017 - Dynamics and Geometry

Geometry brings into play various spaces, such as Riemannian, Kähler or symplectic manifolds, graphs, and moduli spaces. By nature, it is intricately linked with many other mathematical fields, particularly Algebra, Topology and Group Theory. For more than a century, close interactions with dynamical systems have developed, as geometry has been providing examples such as billiards, geodesic flows, Hamiltonians, the Ricci flow, etc.

The study of such dynamical systems and their asymptotic properties has turned out to be a powerful tool in solving geometric problems, beautifully illustrated by the proof by Grigori Perlman of the Poincaré Conjecture using the Ricci flow on 3-dimensional manifolds.

The semestre "Dynamics and geometry", organized by the Centre Henri Lebesgue, will present recent progress around this interaction between dynamical systems and geometry, bringing together many international experts on the topic. It will also offer several conferences together with mini-courses, in order to make these topics accessible to a broad audience, including young researchers.
