Centre de Morphologie Mathématique (or Center of Mathematical Morphology, or CMM) is a research center of the École des Mines de Paris, France, devoted to the research and promotion of mathematical morphology. It was created in 1968 as a result of the works of Georges Matheron and Jean Serra, who were hired as its first director and assistant director, respectively.
In 1979, the center was renamed Centre de Géostatistique et de Morphologie Mathématique, reflecting its increased scope. In 1986, the part related to geostatistics split into an independent center (Centre de Géostatistique), still directed by Matheron. Serra was named the directory of the new CMM. The research center developed XLim which was used at the origin of Aphelion developments in 1999.
The CMM is located at Fontainebleau, France, and is currently directed by Michel Bilodeau. 2 Nobel Prize winners 233 teacher-researchers 18 research centers 100 theses supported per year 400 articles or books published each year Numerous partnerships with French or foreign research organizations: CNRS , the ParisTech and the Mining Schools Group , INRIA , Imperial College , MIT ...
The creation of new disciplines: geostatistics, mathematical morphology, flat systems. A school open to the world 120 partner universities on 5 continents 28% of foreign students, all cycles combined 57 nationalities represented 1/3 of professors recruited internationally. The research at MINES ParisTech is structured around 5 main themes corresponding to 5 research departments. 18 research centers and a training institute form these research departments.
