Sources in the history of mathematics / Sources en histoire des mathématiques


From November 4 to 8, 2013, the GDR Histoire des Mathématiques organizes his first École. It will take place at the CIRM (Luminy, close to Marseille).

This School is specially directed towards young researchers in the history of mathematics. It is structured along three units, or blocks, each one of which contains a plenary lecture course as well as three workshops in parallel sessions (between the blocks). Roughly half of the teaching will be in English (the other half being in French). A detailed presentation of each block can be downloaded by clicking on its title.


Block 1. The variety of mathematical sources and the question of their interpretation

Organizers: Karine Chemla, Renaud Chorlay, Baptiste Mélès, with the active participation of Agathe Keller, Cécile Michel, Christine Proust, Dominique Tournès.



Block 2. Constructing collectives of texts

Organizers: Frédéric Brechenmacher, Hélène Gispert, with the active participation of Jenny Boucard, Matthieu Husson, Philippe Nabonnand, Jeanne Peiffer, Sabine Rommevaux.



Block 3. Problems, methods, and practices of editing mathematical texts in the digital age

Organizers: Fabio Acerbi, Alexandre Guilbaud, with the active participation of Ramon Masià, Irène Passeron, Bernard Vitrac.
