Abstract In this letter, we show how one can solve easily the Potts-3 + branching interactions and Potts-∞ matrix models, by the means of the equations of motion (loop equations). We give an algebraic equation for the resolvents of these models, and their scaling behaviour. This shows that the equations of motion can be a useful tool for solving such models.

Boundary States of the Potts Model on Random Planar Maps
We revisit the 3-states Potts model on random planar triangulations as a Hermitian matrix model. As a novelty, we obtain an algebraic curve which encodes the partition function on the disc with both
Yang-Lee zeros of the two- and three-state Potts model defined on phi3 Feynman diagrams.
For the Ising model, an argument based on a symmetry of the saddle point equations leads to a nonperturbative proof that the Yang-Lee zeros are located on the unit circle, although no circle theorem is known in this case of random graphs.
Sums of Random Matrices and the Potts Model on Random Planar Maps
We compute the partition function of the $q$-states Potts model on a random planar lattice with $p\leq q$ allowed, equally weighted colours on a connected boundary. To this end, we employ its matrix
Random Matrices, Boundaries and Branes
This thesis is devoted to the application of random matrix theory to the study of random surfaces, both discrete and continuous; special emphasis is placed on surface boundaries and the associated
Planar maps and random partitions
This habilitation thesis summarizes the research that I have carried out from 2005 to 2019. It is organized in four chapters. The first three deal with random planar maps. Chapter 1 is about their


Combinatorial solution of the two-matrix model
Abstract We write down and solve a closed set of Schwinger-Dyson equations for the two-matrix model in the large N limit. Our elementary method yields exact solutions for correlation functions
Renormalization group approach to matrix models
Abstract Matrix models of 2D quantum gravity are either exactly solvable for matter of central charge c ⩽ 1, or not understood. It would be useful to devise an approximate scheme which would be
