Stochastic Modelling of Cold Spray Coatings Microstructure

Modern materials manufacturing has evolved toward a better control and optimization at the microscopic scale. Hence, microstructures commonly exhibit complex morphologies mixing various materials including carbon fibers arrangements into polymer matrix. The physical and mechanical features of heterogeneous materials at the macroscopic scale are largely dictated by phenomena appearing at the microscopic level. In this […]

Numerical models and homogenization to study the sensitivity of energetic materials: effect of damage and microstructure

Shock sensitivity is often studied in order to improve the safety of energetic materials (i.e., explosives). Numerous studies have shown that the former is sensitive to microstructural characteristics. However, the exact mechanisms responsible for the interplay between mechanical damage, microstructure heterogeneities (grains shape, intra or extra-granular effects) during initiation have not been fully understood. The […]

A new Tenure track at the Centre for Mathematical Morphology

My name is Samy Blusseau and I started a Tenure track at the Centre for Mathematical Morphology (CMM) of Mines ParisTech in March. I had already done a one year postdoc at the CMM since February 2017, jointly with the LTCI lab of Télécom ParisTech, under the supervision of Jesus Angulo, Santiago Velasco-Forero, Isabelle Bloch […]

Inferring the Structure of Galaxies with Deep Convolutional Neural Networks

The popular and beautiful galaxy images provided from telescopes like the NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope or the Sloan Digital Sky Survey, enabled astronomers to a plethora of studies that greatly improved our knowledge of the Universe and its evolution. In particular the structure of the galaxies can be effectively characterized from their surface light profile […]

13th International Symposium on Mathematical Morphology (ISMM’2017)

The Center for Mathematical Morphology, MINES ParisTech, is organizing on the occasion of the 50 years of its foundation, the 13th International Symposium on Mathematical Morphology (ISMM’2017), in Fontainebleau on May 15-17. ISMM 2017 is held at MINES ParisTech Campus in Fontainebleau. The scientific program highlight the current trends and advances in mathematical morphology, […]

Sébastien Drouyer: PhD at the CMM, MINES ParisTech

My name is Sébastien Drouyer and I am currently finishing a PhD thesis in the Center for Mathematical Morphology (CMM) at MINES Paristech, under the supervision of Serge Beucher and Michel Bilodeau. The PhD is financed by IFP Energies Nouvelles where I also work with Maxime Moreaud and Loïc Sorbier. Mathematical morphology is a field […]

Physico-realistic image synthesis and materials elaboration for automative industry

The LIMA project (Light – Interaction – MAterials) originates from three research laboratories at MINES ParisTech: the Center for Mathematical Morphology (CMM), the Robotics Lab (CAOR) and the Center for Materials (MAT), as well as from the Center for Materials (C2MA) from the Alès Mines School. Several companies, including PSA Peugeot Citroën are assocaietd to […]

Emmanuel Chevallier: PhD at the CMM, MINES ParisTech

I am Emmanuel Chevallier from France. I finished my master degree from the university of Rennes 1 and my engineering diploma from Telecom Bretagne in 2012. Since then, I am a PhD student in the Center for Mathematical Morphology (CMM), MINES ParisTech, under the supervision of Jesus Angulo. Since its apparition, mathematical morphology has evolved […]

Image processing methods for computer-aided screening of diabetic retinopathy

Medical image processing. Screening systems are an essential element of diabetic retinopathy prevention. The efficiency of these systems could benefit from computer-aided approaches. Eye fundus image processing methods are developed in this thesis, in order to detect lesions and produce pathological scores. The work of Xiwei Zhang has been integrated in the TeleOphta system, which […]

Center for Mathematical Morphology (CMM), MINES ParisTech

MINES ParisTech, the Ecole des Mines de Paris (ENSMP), is one of the oldest French higher public education institutions in engineering, with a teaching staff of 286 research professors, working on 18 research centres extending over five different departments (earth sciences and environment, energy and process engineering, mechanical engineering and materials, mathematics and systems, economics, […]
