The Lebesgue Center offers 10,000€ scholarships to outstanding mathematics students applying for a master programme in mathematics, for a fist year of Master (M1) or for a second year of Master (M2), in Rennes, Nantes, Angers, Brest or Vannes.
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.
The application for the lebesgue Master Scholarship is open until March 15th, 2017.
The results of the selection process will be edited in April 2017.
Applicants can obtain more information about the masters programmes on the page: Information.
Applicants must complete the online form and attach the documents:
- 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.
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.

Kähler geometry is a very active research field, at the crossroads between algebraic and Riemannian geometry. Important breakthrough, that lead to solve the Yau-Tian-Donaldson conjecture in the Fano case, have been achieved recently. A spring school involving mini-lectures and talks around this thread of new ideas in Kähler geometry is organized at Nantes University. The goal of the school is to develop certain technical skills, useful to address a variety of important questions in algebraic geometry and global analysis on manifolds, aimed for PhD students and young researchers. Geometric flows, like the Kähler-Ricci flow for instance, and the associated quantification by the Donaldson dynamical system, will be among the essential tools dealt with during the school.
Conference - Teichmüller Theory in Higher Dimension and Mirror Symmetry

This conference will focus on dynamical systems which naturally preserve a measure with infinite mass. These systems appear in a geometric or probabilistic context, or may come from natural sciences. When the invariant measure has infinite mass, recurrence is no longer automatic, usual mixing properties disappear and new asymptotical properties (such as rationnal ergodicity) may occur. Such systems may develop various and subtil behaviours, which could not exists in finite measure dynamics.
This conference will gather international experts on this topic, and will allow young researcher to have an easy access to the large recent developpment on such questions.
Conference - Families of algebraic dynamical systems
Scientific board: Bachir Bekka, Emmanuel Breuillard, Nizar Demni, Alex Lubotzky
The conference deals with themes around random walks on algebraic structures.
Dynamical sytems on groups, homogeneous spaces, and related structures (graphs, quantum groups , groupoids,...) are rich objects, involving various fields of mathematics (probability, group theory, topology, number theory, operator algebras, Banach space geometry, etc). They are also useful as modelling tools for other sciences (physics, computer science, economics, etc); for instance, expander graphs, which are of interest in theoretical computer science, are graphs for which the associated random walk has special spectral properties and their explicit construction involves sophisticated tools such as Kazhdan's property (T) or Selberg's inequality.
The conference aims to give a flavor of the various aspects of the subject by bringing together some experts with major contributions to the field.
This conference will also be the opportunity to celebrate the 80th birthday of Yves Guivarc'h, who played a major part
in the development of probability on algebraic and geometric structures, a subject with an ever growing interest for the last 30 years.

Numerous areas of mathematics are touched by what could be called Dynamics on representation varieties. For instance one could mention ergodic theory, Riemannian geometry, low-dimensional topology, Teichmüller theory, and so on... The aim of this workshop is to bring together graduate students, recent graduates and experts in these different areas, giving everybody ample time for discussions and collaborations. Next to a number of research talks, three mini-courses by Tsachik Gelander, Francois Labourie and Julien Marché will take place.
We the organizers of this conference affirm that scientific events must be open to everyone, regardless of race, sex, religion, national origin, sexual orientation, gender identity, disability, age, pregnancy, immigration status, or any other aspect of identity. We believe that such events must be supportive, inclusive, and safe environments for all participants. We believe that all participants are to be treated with dignity and respect. Discrimination and harassment cannot be tolerated. We are committed to ensuring that the Conference Dynamics on representation varieties follows these principles.
For more information on the Statement of Inclusiveness, see this dedicated web page.
