All of us, who work in the fields of mathematical informatics, in France and abroad, we will not forget him.
Philippe’s work accompanies us every day in our research and shows us the way.


Several members of SINFIN, notably in the  ”Randomness and Analysis of Algorithms” team, worked hand by hand with Philippe Flajolet.
