Dean of the doctoral School n°574 EDMH | Mathématics Hadamard
Born in 1962, Frédéric Paulin is a former student of ENS Ulm (1982), agrégé de mathématiques (1984) and PhD of Université Paris XI (1987). He was « chargé de recherche » CNRS at the ENS Lyon (1988-1996), Professor at Université Paris XI (1996-2000), Full professor at ENS Ulm (2000-2010), and PRCE at Université Paris-Sud.
He was Director (1997-2000), Deputy director (2010-2011) and Director (2013-2015) of the Doctoral School in Mathematics of the Paris-South Region, Director of Studies and Trainings in Mathematics at the ENS Ulm (2000-2009), Editor-in-chief of the Annales Scientifiques de l'Ecole Normale Supérieure (2004-2009), Deputy director of the Laboratoire de Mathématique d'Orsay (2010-2014). He has been the advisor of 47 M1 memoirs, 9 M2 memoirs and 7 PhDs, has written 67 papers and 1600 pages of freely accessible lecture notes, and has given 183 talks.
Frédéric Paulin works in hyperbolic geometry, low dimensional topology, geometry of groups (including group actions on trees and buildings), discrete subgroups of Lie groups, ergodic theory of geodesic flows, applications of dynamics on homogeneous spaces to number theory, and counting and equidistribution problems with geometrical origin. His recent works are related to statistical physics (Gibbs measures and equilibrium states), and to homogeneous dynamics in positive characteristic.
