Ask for a financing application.

General informations

In this page you can apply for a financing  application  for either a mission or a conference.


Depending on whether the application is for a mission or a conference, it should be submitted between 2 and 3 months in advance, see the links below.


The funding applications will be examinated at the beginning of each month by the Steering Committee (SC). The SC will evaluate the quality and scientific content of the application, together with its relevance for the french-italian collaborations that the LYSM wants to favour, and the reasonableness of the financial plan. The decision will be taken after a vote of the SC.


The decisions of the SC are communicated to the applicants as soon as possible, usually in the second half of the month when the demand is examined. The successful applicant is requested either to insert the LYSM logo on the website and poster of the supported conference, or to acknowledge the "financial support of the LIA LYSM AMU CNRS ECM INdAM" in the scientific publications connected with the funded mission.

Quantum optimal transport is cheaper. Emanuele Caglioti, François Golse & Thierry Paul




We compare bipartite (Euclidean) matching problems in classical and quantum mechanics. The quantum case is treated in terms of a quantum version of the Wasserstein distance introduced in [F. Golse, C. Mouhot, T. Paul, Commun. Math. Phys. 343 (2016), 165-205]. We show that the optimal quantum cost can be cheaper than the classical one. We treat in detail the case of two particles: the equal mass case leads to equal quantum and classical costs. Moreover, we show examples with different masses for which the quantum cost is strictly cheaper than the classical cost.
