Spectral properties of large Wigner random matrices with non-symmetrically distributed entries

The talk will be based on our recent joint work with Sandrine Peche in which we studied the spectral norm of the Wigner matrices with centered but non-symmetrically distributed entries. Our results improve the earlier bounds on the spectral norm due to Komlos and Furedi (1981) and Van Vu (2005).
