Toulouse Mathematics Institute

published on , updated on

The Toulouse Mathematics Institute, CNRS Research Laboratory, federates the mathematics community of the Toulouse area. It is comprised of three main teams, the team of Statistics and Probability, the Mathematics for Industry and Physics Team and the Emile Picard Team, located at the University of Toulouse III, the Universities of Toulouse I and II, and INSA (Institut National des Sciences Appliquées).

It brings together around 240 tenured researchers and lecturer-researchers whose research interests cover a very broad spectrum of mathematics, ranging from theoretical aspects to applications. It is host to long- and short-term foreign visitors from all over the world, and all mathematical backgrounds. It cultivates international partnerships, as well as industrial contracts, these being particularly at a local level.

Jointly accredited with INSA, SUPAERO and the University of Toulouse I, and associated with the Graduate School of Informatics at the level of the University of Toulouse, its Graduate School has an annual intake of around 120 graduate students.

The Institute Library hosts the region’s largest collection of mathematical books and journals, and constitutes a major work tool.

Under the aegis of the University Paul-Sabatier (University of Toulouse III), The Mathematics Institute publishes the “Annales de la Faculté des Sciences de Toulouse (Mathématiques)”, one of France’s oldest scientific journals, and awards the internationally-renowned “Fermat Prize for mathematical research” every two years.
