National Initiatives

Alexis Saurin (coordinator) and Yann Régis-Gianas are members of the four-year RAPIDO ANR project, started in January 2015. RAPIDO aims at investigating the use of proof-theoretical methods to reason and program on infinite data objects. The goal of the project is to develop logical systems capturing infinite proofs (proof systems with least and greatest fixpoints as well as infinitary proof systems), to design and to study programming languages for manipulating infinite data such as streams both from a syntactical and semantical point of view. Moreover, the ambition of the project is to apply the fundamental results obtained from the proof-theoretical investigations (i) to the development of software tools dedicated to the reasoning about programs computing on infinite data, e.g. stream programs (more generally coinductive programs), and (ii) to the study of properties of automata on infinite words and trees from a proof-theoretical perspective with an eye towards model-checking problems. Other permanent members of the project are Christine Tasson from IRIF (PPS team), David Baelde from LSV, ENS-Cachan, and Pierre Clairambault, Damien Pous and Colin Riba from LIP, ENS-Lyon.

Pierre-Louis Curien (coordinator), Yves Guiraud (local coordinator), Philippe Malbos and Samuel Mimram are members of the four-year Cathre ANR project (January 2014 to December 2017). This project investigates the general theory of higher-dimensional rewriting, the development of a general-purpose library for higher-dimensional rewriting, and applications in the fields of combinatorial linear algebra, combinatorial group theory and theoretical computer science. This project is joint with mathematicians and computer scientists from LAGA (Univ. Paris 13), LIX (École Polytechnique), ICJ (Univ. Lyon 1 and Univ. Saint-Étienne), I2M (Univ. Aix-Marseille) and IMT (Univ. Toulouse 3). The project Cathre provided the funding for the PhD of Maxime Lucas.

Pierre-Louis Curien, Yves Guiraud, Hugo Herbelin, Philippe Malbos, Samuel Mimram and Alexis Saurin are members of the GDR Informatique Mathématique, in the Géocal (Geometry of computation) and LAC (Logic, algebra and computation) working groups.

Pierre-Louis Curien, Yves Guiraud (local coordinator), Philippe Malbos, Samuel Mimram and Matthieu Sozeau are members of the GDR Topologie Algébrique, federating French researchers working on classical topics of algebraic topology and homological algebra, such as homotopy theory, group homology, K-theory, deformation theory, and on more recent interactions of topology with other themes, such as higher categories and theoretical computer science.

Yann Régis-Gianas collaborates with Mitsubishi Rennes on the topic of differential semantics. This collaboration led to the CIFRE grant for the PhD of Thibaut Girka.

Yann Régis-Gianas is a member of the ANR COLIS dedicated to the verification of Linux Distribution installation scripts. This project is joint with members of VALS (Univ Paris Sud) and LIFL (Univ Lille).

Matthieu Sozeau is a member of the CoqHoTT project led by Nicolas Tabareau (Gallinette team, Inria Nantes & École des Mines de Nantes), funded by an ERC Starting Grant. The post-doctoral grant of Eric Finster is funded by the CoqHoTT ERC and Amin Timany's 2-month visit was funded on the ERC as well.
