Contexte et atouts du poste

This project takes place in the context of ERC Synergy project EMC2, which is an interdisciplinary project that carries out innovative and cutting-edge research at the interface of physics/chemistry, computer science, and mathematics. Molecular simulation is an active field of research with applications ranging from drug design to material science and nanotechnology.  However, molecular simulation still has strong limitations. In particular, the simulation of very large molecular systems remains out of reach today. Overcoming these limitations is difficult and provides mathematicians with a range of challenging and exciting problems to solve.

Mission confiée

The specific topic of interest is the usage of randomization techniques for solving eigenvalue problems and linear systems of equations arising in particular in molecular simulations. These problems are characterized by large scale, high dimensions, and high ranks. Randomization is a powerfull technique that allows to represent high dimensional vectors by their low dimensional random projections while preserving some geometry.  In collaboration with other members of the project, the developed methods and algorithms will be validated on several applications of interest.

Principales activités

- design of algorithms, study of their stability, implementation and testing on relevant applications


Technical skills and level required : Phd in applied mathematics or computer science. Experience in linear and/or multilinear algebra is desirable. Knowledge of randomization techniques and/or parallel computing will be a plus but it is not required.
