Spectral Properties of Large Random MatricesStudent-Run Applied & Math Seminar
|Speaker: ||Alexander Soshnikov, UC Davis|
|Location: ||2112 MSB|
|Start time: ||Wed, Apr 27 2011, 12:10PM|
The talk is intended as an introduction to Random Matrix Theory.
I will highlight the connections to Analysis, Integrable Systems, Number Theory, and Combinatorics. In particular, I will talk about the Mehta-Dyson universality conjecture in Random Matrices.
At the end, I will touch on recent results (joint with Sean O'Rourke, Alessandro Pizzo, and David Renfrew) about fluctuation of matrix entries and distribution of outliers in the spectrum.
