Bernard Derrida spends much of his time researching Statistical physics, Condensed matter physics, Mathematical analysis, Simple and Phase transition. Bernard Derrida specializes in Statistical physics, namely Large deviations theory. In general Condensed matter physics, his work in Electronic structure is often linked to Exponent linking many areas of study.

His work in Mathematical analysis covers topics such as Asymmetric simple exclusion process which are related to areas like Stochastic process and Particle. His work investigates the relationship between Simple and topics such as Current that intersect with problems in Additive function, Matrix, Distribution, Ring and Function. His studies deal with areas such as Reaction–diffusion system, Spin glass, Phase, Phase velocity and Nonlinear system as well as Phase transition.
