The purpose of this workshop is to build on the successful Spring 1999 MSRI Semester Program: Random Matrix Models and Their Applications. Since the 1999 program many developments continue in random matrix theory and its applications to combinatorics, growth processes, number theory, queueing theory, representation theory, and statistics. This workshop will focus on the current directions of random matrix theory and its many applications. Invited Speakers:
