The CIRM Jean-Morlet subseries is a co-edition between the SMF (Jean-Morlet Chair at CIRM) and the Springer Lecture Notes in Mathematics which aims to collect together courses and lectures on cutting-edge subjects given during the term of the respective Jean-Morlet Chair, as well as new material produced in its wake. It is targeted at researchers, in particular PhD students and postdocs.
The Jean-Morlet Chair has been hosted by the Centre International de Rencontres Mathématiques (CIRM, Luminy, France) since its creation in 2013. It is named in honour of Jean Morlet (1931–2007) who was an engineer at the French oil company Elf (now Total) and, together with the physicist Alex Grossman, conducted pioneering work in wavelet analysis.This theory has since become a building block of modern mathematics. It was at CIRM that they met on several occasions, and the center then played host to some of the key conferences in this field. Appointments to the Jean-Morlet Chair are made to worldclass researchers based outside France and who work in collaboration with local project leaders in order to conduct original and ambitious scientific programs.The Chair is supported financially by CIRM, Aix-Marseille Université and the City of Marseille.
A key feature of the Chair is that it does not focus solely on the research themes developed by Jean Morlet. The idea is tomsupport the freedom of pioneers in mathematical sciences and to nurture the enthusiasm that comes from opening new avenues of research.
