  1. [HYBRID WORKSHOP] Connections and Introductory Workshop: Universality and Integrability in Random Matrix Theory and Interacting Particle Systems, Part 2

    Organizers: Gérard Ben Arous (New York University, Courant Institute), Ioana Dumitriu (University of California, San Diego), Alice Guionnet (École Normale Supérieure de Lyon), Alisa Knizel (The University of Chicago), Sylvia Serfaty (New York University, Courant Institute), Horng-Tzer Yau (Harvard University)
    An illustration of the TASEP interface growth by Leonid Petrov and Hao Yu Li.

    This will be a hybrid workshop with in-person participation by members of the semester-long program. Online participation will be open to all who register.

    This workshop aims at providing participants with an overview of some of the recent developments in the topics of the semester, with a particular emphasis on universality and applications. This includes universality for Wigner matrices and band matrices and quantum unique ergodicity, universality for beta ensembles and log/coulomb gases, KPZ universality class, universality in interacting particle systems, the connection between random matrices and number theory.

    In addition, this workshop will also explore connections with other branches of mathematics and applications to sciences and engineering. The workshop will feature presentations by both leading researchers and promising newcomers. There will be some special activities originally planned for the Connections Workshop: We will have a panel discussion of topics relevant to junior researchers, women, and minorities; a poster session for students and recent PhDs; and other social events.

    This workshop is open to and welcomes all mathematicians.
