Universality and Integrability in Random Matrix Theory and Interacting Particle Systems August 16, 2021 to December 17, 2021
Organizers LEAD Ivan Corwin (Columbia University), Percy Deift (New York University, Courant Institute), Ioana Dumitriu (University of Washington), Alice Guionnet (École Normale Supérieure de Lyon), Alexander Its (Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis), Herbert Spohn (Technische Universität München), Horng-Tzer Yau (Harvard University)
The past decade has seen tremendous progress in understanding the behavior of large random matrices and interacting particle systems. Complementary methods have emerged to prove universality of these behaviors, as well as to probe their precise nature using integrable, or exactly solvable models. This program seeks to reinforce and expand the fruitful interaction at the interface of these areas, as well as to showcase some of the important developments and applications of the past decade.
