Welcome to the website of the Laboratoire de Mathématiques de Lens

The Laboratoire de Mathématiques de Lens (UR 2462) is part of Université d’Artois. It is a member of the Fédération de Recherche Mathématique des Hauts-de-France FR2307 - CNRS.

It has multiple research areas (clic on the title of each team below to see a more detailed description and the list of members of the team).

Its publications are listed on HAL.

The projects managed or partially managed by the LML are listed on this page.
