Show List of Speakers


One of the aims of this workshop is to present basic notions from random matrix theory, with a particular focus on providing background material so that all participants can interact successfully with more experienced and senior researchers involved in the program. Many of the senior participants are experts in one area of random matrix theory and have less familiarity with techniques and results from other related topics. We hope this workshop will broaden the knowledge of all participants so that they migth more fully interact with all aspects of the program. In conjunction with this we plan on organizing discussion sessions in which to explore open problems and directions of research which will emerge during the week-long workshop held the preceding week.

Accommodations: A block of rooms has been reserved at the Rose Garden Inn. Reservations may be made by calling 1-800-992-9005 OR directly on their website. Click on Corporate at the bottom of the screen and when prompted enter code MATH (this code is not case sensitive).
