Contractualization - history
The LMPA is the union (since 1998 ) of the LANGAL ( Laboratory of ANalysis, Geometry and Algebra ) created in 1994 and the LMA (Laboratory of Applied Mathematics) established in 1993.
In 1998, the laboratory was renamed Laboratoire de Mathématiques Pures et Appliquées Joseph Liouville . The LMPA is contractualised by the Ministry of Research (team n° EA 2597) and belongs to the CNRS Maths. Laboratories Federation from North of France (FR 2956).
Why Joseph Liouville ?
Just because this illustrious mathematician was born in our region, he became interested in wide range of areas in mathematics. In 1836, he founded Le Journal de mathématiques pures et appliquées , this journal is still published nowerdays (by Elsevier). It is therefore natural in honor of Joseph Liouville that the name of our laboratory was selected.
