After reviewing some basic properties of RNA, we show how the problem of RNA folding can be formulated in terms of a matrix field theory. As a consequence, RNA secondary structures can be classified according to their topological genus. After presenting some combinatorics results about RNA structure, we present an overview of the genus distribut...
