Founded under the name “Institut de Mathématiques de Jussieu” on 1st January, 1994, the Institut de Mathématiques de Jussieu-Paris Rive Gauche (IMJ-PRG) is a research unit (UMR 7586) specializing in pure Mathematics.

Financed by funds from CNRS, Pierre et Marie Curie University (UPMC) and Paris Diderot University (UP7D), it hosts a little more than 500 members of which 250 are permanent staff, and is located on two different campuses in Paris: the Jussieu campus in the 5th arrondissement and since January 2013, the Paris Rive Gauche campus in the 13th arrondissement.

IMJ-PRG is organized along twelve departments/teams covering all fundamental Mathematics fields: Algebraic Analysis (AA), Complex Analysis and Geometry (ACG), Functional Analysis (AF), Algebra of Operators (AO), Combinatorics and Optimization (CO), Automorphic Forms (FA), History of Mathematical Sciences (HSM), Geometry and Dynamics (GD), Representations, Groups and Geometry (GR), Mathematical Logic (LM), Theory of Numbers (TN), Algebraic Topology and Geometry (TGA).

IMJ-PRG is also part of the Paris Mathematical Federation and of the Mathematical Sciences Foundation of Paris, Networks of excellence set up by Parisian universities and research institutions regrouping all structures interested in mathematics for the region of Ile de France.

Education and training being also at the heart of IMJ-PRG activities, members of the Institute supervise all masters’ degrees of UPMC and UP7D in fundamental Mathematics. Finally IMJ-PRG is the biggest structure in Paris, and in France to welcome more than 120 PhD students.
