Robert Eymard is Professor of Mathematics at Paris-Est University, France. His research interests relate to the use and the mathematical analysis (for example convergence properties) of numerical methods, and particularly finite volume methods, in various industrial frameworks.

Jean-Marc Hérard is a senior engineer in the research branch of EDF (Electricité de France). He is currently in charge of the research program in numerical methods for the EDF-CEA-AREVA-IRSN joint project NEPTUNE. He is involved in the mathematical and numerical modeling of single-phase and multiphase flows.
His research topics also include the development of new finite volume schemes for the computation of hyperbolic systems.
