Analytic Number Theory and Arithmetic Statistics┃August 26 - 30, 2024

June 19, 2024
By Centre de Recherches Mathématiques



Chantal David is one of the leading number theorists in Canada, known for significant and original research contributions. She is primarily interested in distribution questions for arithmetic objects such as elliptic curves, abelian varieties, families of curves over finite fields, and zeroes of L-functions, using techniques from arithmetic statistics, analytic number theory, and random matrix theory.

After completing her PhD at McGill in 1993, supervised by Ram Murty, Chantal joined the faculty of Concordia University, where she has long been a Full Professor. She was recognized with the 2013 Canadian Mathematical Society Krieger-Nelson prize for outstanding research by a female Canadian mathematician, and a 2022 Concordia University Research Award for leadership, training of students, and overall influence in the Concordia community. She was an invited member of the Institute of Advanced Study in 2009-2010 and was an Eisenbud Professor at the Simons Laufer Mathematical Sciences Institute (formerly known as MSRI) in 2017. She has authored approximately 50 research articles with about as many collaborators, delivering numerous plenary talks at major conferences. She has also organized many conferences, workshops, and schools, in Canada and around the world.

Chantal is widely recognized as a mentor for young researchers, for example as an invited lecturer and project leader at the Arizona Winter School and at Mathematical Research Communities. She has been centrally involved in the "Women in Numbers" conference series since its inception in 2008, where she has had a deep and positive influence on the careers of many women in number theory.

By her roles as a leader and a mentor, Chantal David has been a leading inspiration for progress in analytic number theory in Canada. The aim of this meeting is to focus on current hot topics in analytic number theory, celebrating her contributions to the field, and her importance in our community.
