Centre de Recherches Mathématiques

The Centre de recherches mathématiques (CRM)[1] is the first mathematical research institute in Canada, located at the Université de Montréal.

The CRM has ten research laboratories, one in each of: mathematical analysis, number theory and symbolic computation, differential geometry and topology, discrete mathematics and combinatorics, applied mathematics, neuroimaging, mathematical physics, statistics, probability theory and quantum computing.[2]

Each year it awards four of the main mathematical sciences prizes in Canada: the CRM–Fields–PIMS prize,[3] which is the most prestigious award given in Canada in mathematics; the Aisenstadt Prize,[4] awarded to a young outstanding Canadian mathematician; the CRM–SSC Prize,[5] awarded in collaboration with the Statistical Society of Canada to an exceptional young Canadian statistician; and the CAP–CRM Prize in Theoretical and Mathematical Physics awarded in collaboration with the Canadian Association of Physicists in recognition of exceptional achievements in theoretical and mathematical physics.
