Canada Research Chairs
Canada Research Chair in Number Theory
Granville Andrew, Full Professor
The Chair’s focus is on solving problems in analytic number theory and additive combinatorics. These areas of mathematics find applications in many fields such as public cryptography, digital information storage and global positioning systems.
Canada Research Chair in Differential Geometry and Topology
Lalonde François, Full Professor
François Lalonde’s work has helped to define the mathematical structure of symplectic spaces, by determining their classification and reaching basic conclusions about the stability and rigidity of their components. His findings command as much interest among mathematicians as among mathematical physicists, who see them as one of the ways of understanding subatomic activity. As Chairholder, Professor Lalonde will continue to study mathematical tools for describing complex physical phenomena.
Canada Research Chair in Geometry and Spectral Theory
Polterovich Iosif, Full Professor
In his research, Iosif Polterovich examines mathematical models of real-life phenomena with the aim of developing a mathematical framework for several fields of physics.
