The Fondation Sciences Mathématiques de Paris (FSMP) provides funding for 20 years of post-doctoral fellowships in mathematics and in computer science for the 2018-2019 academic year. (Meaning you cannot expect a position in Paris for the coming 20 years!) Appointed fellows will hold one or two-year positions in affiliated research laboratories, starting in October 2018. This program is supported by Université Paris Sciences Lettres (PSL). If you are interested in applying for one of these fellowships, please register online. Note that the deadline is December 1!

Rites of love and math

Edward Frenkel was the first research chair laureate of Fondation sciences mathématiques de Paris in 2008. He has written a film co-directed with Reine Graves about the beauty of mathematics, entitled Rites of Love and Math in homage to Yukio Mishima‘s Rites of Love and Death. (The film première will take place at Max Linder Panorama theater, 24 bd Poissoniere, Paris 9e, on Wednesday, April 14 at 6 p.m. The entrance is free. Warning: I do not have the slightest idea what the film is about!) I like very much some of Mishima’s novels, like The Temple of the Golden Pavillion, but the reference to the movie (whose Japanese title is Patriotism) is a bit unsettling… It is indeed prefiguring Mishima’s own suicide in 1970 during an amateurish right-wing coup.
