Workshop on Random Matrices and Other Random Objects


FIM, ETH Zurich 17-21 May 2005

This workshop is dedicated to new developments in random matrix theory, random partitions and related topics in physics and mathematics. On the physical side, random matrices appear in several new developments, in particular in Laplacian growth problems, Yang-Mills theory and string theory, that raise several mathematical questions. On the mathematics side, several powerful techniques, based on the Riemann-Hilbert problem, discretization, and large deviations, have been introduced. The workshop aims at a fruitful exchange of ideas and different points of view in this subject.

Organizers: Alberto Cattaneo, Giovanni Felder, Thomas Kappeler

Sponsors: FIM, EU network ENIGMA, ESF programme MISGAM
