The Laboratory of Mathematics of Decision and Numerical Analysis is a laboratory created in 2005, based at Cheikh Anta Diop University in Dakar (UCAD), bringing together research professors and doctoral students in Mathematics, Mathematical Economics and Econometrics.
The laboratory is interested in Mathematics and its Applications. Several questions studied are inspired by issues of physics, engineering sciences, economics, biology, the environment (coastal erosion, Desert dune movement), etc. It is made up of several teams organized schematically as follows: Mathematical Economics, Finance and Insurance, Econometrics, Probability and Statistics, Development and Programming, Systems Modeling, ODE and ODE Control Theory, Partial Differential Equations, Geometric Analysis of Forms Optimal, Mass Transport, Optimization and Operational Research. It also aims to be a bridge between UCAD researchers, the business world and decision-makers.
Thus research subjects are initiated to answer specific questions of interest to populations or society in general. Several doctoral theses (more than twenty) in mathematics, economics and finance have already been prepared and defended as part of LMDAN's research activities. Some of this work is the result of collaboration between LMDAN and other laboratories (in the West African sub-region or even outside the African continent).
