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 fixed points 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 have been members of the three-year Focal project of the IDEX Sorbonne Paris Cité (July 2013 to June 2016). This project, giving the support for the PhD grant of Cyrille Chenavier, concerns the interactions between higher-dimensional rewriting and combinatorial algebra. This project is joint with mathematicians form LAGA (Univ. Paris 13).
Pierre-Louis Curien (coordinator), Yves Guiraud (local coordinator), Philippe Malbos and Samuel Mimram are members of the four-year Cathre ANR project, started in January 2014. This project, giving the support for the PhD grant of Maxime Lucas, 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).
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.
Hugo Herbelin was the coordinator of the PPS site for the ANR Récré (January 2012 to mid 2016). Récré is about realisability and rewriting, with applications to proving with side-effects and concurrency.
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 (Ascola team, École des Mines de Nantes), funded by an ERC Starting Grant. The PhD grant of Gabriel Lewertowski was funded by the CoqHoTT ERC.
