Bertrand Eynard, Physicist

Former CEA Research Director (2018-2021)

Bertrand Eynard is studying theoretical physics and mathematics. He is mainly interested in random matrices, random geometry, integrable systems or enumerative geometry.

He is a member of the Institut de Physique Théorique of CEA and of the Centre de Recherches Mathématiques of Montréal.

Specialist in random matric theory, a subject he teaches at the “Probabilities” Master’s program at Paris-Saclay University, as well as in postgraduate-schools, Bertrand Eynard has led many projects on map enumeration and authored a book, “Counting Surfaces”, Birkhäuser (2017). One of his achievements in 2019 was to establish an upper bound (Gevrey index) on the growth of topological recursion coefficients, thus opening the route towards the resurgence formalism.
