Mathematics is in constant and vigorous development, driven both by its internal dynamics and by the demands of other disciplines. The spectrum of mathematical research at EPFL reflects both this vigor and this diversity.
It ranges from fundamental domains such as geometry and algebra, which despite their reputations as ‘pure’ topics nonetheless have increasingly important applications in areas such as communication systems, to more ‘applied’ domains such as numerical modeling, statistical science, and operations research, in which research is generally motivated by challenging real scientific and technological problems. EPFL researchers conduct high-level investigations across a wide spectrum of contemporary mathematics and enjoy high international reputations for their work. The EPFL Doctoral Program in Mathematics reflects this. It offers the point of entry and the administrative home for EPFL doctoral candidates in mathematics, and provides them with advanced courses and training.
The EPFL Doctoral School will soon launch two calls for applications for EPFLglobaLeaders, a new doctoral fellowship programme funding early stage researchers to become leaders in the transition towards sustainable societies. Forty-eight doctoral fellows will benefit from a multifaceted training programme, including a secondment in the non-academic sector. More information: https://go.epfl.ch/EPFLglobaLeaders

Moduli of quiver varieties and relative critical loci
In this talk I will describe a procedure that leads to the construction of lagrangian subvarieties inside symplectic quiver varieties. We will see how this works on the example of the Hilbert scheme of points in the plane. I…
