CERMICS is the research center in applied mathematics at Ecole des Ponts ParisTech. It hosts joint project-teams with Inria Paris and University Marne-la-Vallée. The acronym CERMICS stands for “Centre d’Enseignement et de Recherche en MathématIques et Calcul Scientifique”, literally “Center for Training and Research in MathematIcs and Scientific Computing”.
The research efforts are organized in three main streams: Applied Probability; Modeling, Analysis and Simulation; Optimization and Systems. The originality of the center resides in its capacity to build bridges between deterministic and stochastic approaches and to develop both theoretical and numerical methods.
The center is presented (in French) in this video.
