Classes in 2021-2022

It will be my pleasure to:

  • Co-chair the Viral Propagation term.
  • Chair the course on Partial Differential Equations (PDE).
  • Teach the course Convergence, Integration and Probability (CIP).
  • Advise the projects on Footprint Reduction with CEA in ST7
  • Teach the graduate class on Optimization and calculus of variations.
Students with questions related to these classes should feel free to contact me by e-mail.

Videos for the classes CIP and PDE

Videos for the class on PDEs are available here.

The New CentraleSupélec Curriculum

It has been a pleasure to be the director in charge of the creation of the new engineering curriculum of CentraleSupélec. I would like to thank the faculty and staff of CentraleSupélec as well as all parties involved.

Statement of objectives The statement of objectives of the new CentraleSupélec engineering curriculum can be downloaded here. It was approved, unanimously, by the Academic Program Committee (Conseil des études) and the Board of Trustees (Conseil d'administration) in March 2016.

The description of the curriculum was submitted to the French engineering accrediation board (CTI) in June 2017. The audit took place on October 5th and 6th 2017. The CTI approved the curriculum on December 5th 2017.

Class on Functionnal Analysis on Coursera

Two sessions of the Coursera MOOC on Functional Analysis have finished and we would like to thank the 40,000 participants. We hope you enjoyed the course and learned some new things in this area of mathematics. Certificates of Accomplishments have now been sent to the students who passed the class.

We have had several requests to provide the videos and PDF material. We do not distribute these documents because the course was designed as a whole. Nevertheless, we are aware that some former students ripped the videos while the MOOC was taking place and are making it available online (including on YouTube). We have decided not to take action to remove this material, for now.
