On the occasion of the 2017 CNRS innovation medal award ceremony, this film is a look back on Raphaèle Herbin’s career, a mathematician specialized in the numerical analysis of partial differential equations who heads the Marseille Mathematics Institute (a joint research unit between CNRS/École centrale de Marseille/University of Aix-Marseille). The research she conducted with her colleagues on the theoretical analysis of finite volume methods and computerized simulation of compressible flow opened the way for the development of a new class of algorithms in fluid mechanics used in many industrial implementations. Especially so in the field of nuclear safety, they led to the development of Calif3s software by the French institute for radioprotection and nuclear safety, ISRN.
