CIRM Semester on Theoretical, Mathematical and Computational  

CIRM Marseille
October - December 2011

Neuroscience and its applications are greatly developing world-wide  
and Europe is one of the important contributors to the advancement of  
this discipline. Because of the variety of topics that it has to  
address, it is characterized by a very broad inter-disciplinarity and  
requires the cooperation of actors in several fields of knowledge.

In this context, the need for developing new theoretical,  
mathematical, and computational tools can be clearly identified and  
must be addressed. The purpose of this semester is to present some of  
the relevant modern mathematical tools through short courses and to  
explore several facets of the current research through workshops.
