Jean-Pierre Aubin laid the mathematical  foundation of viability theory at the end of the 1970′ and developed with  Georges Haddad, Hélène Frankowska and Patrick Saint-Pierre  mathematical, numerical and software tools to apply it in control theory, partial differential equations, economics and finance, environmental sciences and cognitive sciences (learn ing processes in natural and artificial neural networks, embarked autonomous feed-backs).  After starting his career at Purdue University (1967) as a specialist of functional numerical analysis of partial differential equations, he returned to France in 1969 to found and develop the  department and research center in decision mathematics and the CEREMADE (Centre de recherche de Mathématiquesde la Décision) of the newly created Université Paris-Dauphine. Since then, he attempts to forge and develop new mathematical tools for mathematics motivated by life sciences. Since 2006, he is one of the co-fonder of VIMADES.
