Le CIRM et l’Université d’Aix-Marseille ont créé une chaire de recherche du nom de Jean Morlet (1931-2007), géophysicien français à l’origine de l’analyse par ondelettes.
-
La Chaire Jean-Morlet est une collaboration scientifique entre le CIRM (CNRS-SMF) et Aix-Marseille Université (AMU) avec le soutien financier de la Ville de Marseille. Deux appels d’offre internationaux sont lancés par an afin de recruter des chercheurs de renommée internationale dans leur domaine. Sur une période d’un semestre pour chaque chaire, un chercheur d’une institution étrangère vient en résidence au CIRM et pour y proposer un programme scientifique complet en collaboration avec un porteur de projet local.

The Chair Morlet has been hosted by the Centre International de Rencontres Mathématiques (CIRM, Luminy, France) since its creation in 2013. The Chair is named in honour of Jean Morlet (1931-2007). He was an engineer at the French oil company Elf (now Total) and, together with the physicist Alex Grossman, conducted pioneering work in wavelet analysis. This theory has since become a building block of modern mathematics. It was at CIRM that they met on several occasions, and the center then played host to some of the key conferences in this field.
-
Appointments to the Jean-Morlet Chair are made to worldclass researchers based outside France and who work in collabo­ ration with local project leaders in order to conduct original and ambitious scientific programs.The Chair is supported finan­ cially by CIRM, Aix-Marseille Université and the City of Marseille.
-
A key feature of the Chair is that it does not focus solely on the research themes developed by Jean Morlet. The idea is to support the freedom of pioneers in mathematical sciences and to nurture the enthusiasm that comes from opening new avenues of research.

CIRM : a beacon for international cooperation Situated at the heart of the Parc des Calanques, an area of out­ standing natural beauty, CIRM is one of the largest conference centers dedicated to mathematical and related sciences in the world, with close to 3500 visitors per year. Jointly supervised by SMF (the French Mathematical Society) and CNRS (French National Center for Scientific Research), CIRM has been a hub for international research in mathematics since 1981. CIRM’s raison d’être is to be a venue that fosters exchanges, pioneering research in mathematics in interaction with other sciences and the dissemination of knowledge to the younger scientific community.
