During this workshop, we wish to further expend work developed during a Research in Residence which took place at CIRM from February 27 to March 10. It studies the statistics of the random energy model (REM), introduced by B. Derrida in 1980, in the complex temperature domain via random complex functions. It is an exactly solvable canonical model of statistical mechanics with disorder. The approach followed is both physical and probabilistic.
