Geometry, Groups, and DynamicsThe concept of geometry evolved in the past two centuries, since the discovery of non-Euclidean and Riemannian geometries. Such geometries underwent a revolution with the work of Gromov and Thurston. Several members of the UMPA (...) Read more
Number TheoryThe research subjects of the members of the Number Theory group are in the domain of arithmetic geometry, going from number theory to algebraic geometry. Read more
PDE and ModellingThis team studies PDE from the theoretical and numerical viewpoints, for applications to Physics and Life Sciences (within the endowed INRIA team Numed). Read more
Probability theoryThe Probability Group investigates various topics such as: free probability, random graphs, random matrices, random media, stochastic partial differential equations. Read more
