Résumé : From the seminal papers of Witten and Kontsevich we know that the intersection theory on the moduli spaces of complex curves is described by a tau-function of the KdV integrable hierarchy. Moreover, this tau-function is given by a matrix integral and satisfies the Virasoro constraints. Recently, an open version of this intersection theory was introduced. In my talk I will discuss the matrix models, which (conjecturally) describe different versions of the open intersection numbers.
