A little bit of history

The Institut Denis Poisson is the heir of the Fédération Denis Poisson. It is the merger of two research laboratories, the MAPMO in Orléans and the LMPT in Tours :

  • The former Mathematics laboratory MAPMO, for Mathématiques, Analyse, Probabilités, Modélisation, Orléans, has evolved around mathematical analysis,  probablilities and mathematical physics. On it’s latest years, more emphasis was put on interactions, be they inside or outside mathematics.
  • The former Mathematics and Theoretical Physics laboratory, LMPT, took it’s originality from it’s bisciplinary structure of Mathematics and THeoretical Physics.
