Workshop on Non-equilibrium Dynamics and Random Matrices

November 4-8, 2013

This workshop is part of the topical program "Non-equilibrium Dynamics and Random Matrices" which will take place during the 2013-2014 academic year at the Institute for Advanced Study.

The workshop aims to provide a broad survey of the current status of Non-equilibrium Dynamics and Random Matrices. The main topics addressed in this workshop are the mathematical foundations of random matrix theory and the random Schrodinger equation, and the applications of random matrix theory to physics, combinatorics, and engineering.


The workshop is organized by Yan Fyodorov (Univ of London), Herbert Spohn (TUM/IAS) and Horng-Tzer Yau (Harvard/IAS).

Confirmed speakers:

Michael Aizenman, Jinho Baik, Marco Bertola, Alexei Borodin, Edouard Brezin, Percy Deift, Laszlo Erdos, Juerg Frohlich, Ilya Gruzberg, Alice Guionnet, Kurt Johansson, Jon Keating, Boris Khoruzhenko, Anti Kupiainen, Joel Lebowitz, Sebastian Mueller, Marc Potters, Jeremy Quastel, Gregory Schehr, Tatyana Shcherbina, Barry Simon, Paul Wiegmann, Anton Zabrodin

Registration: Closed

Registration for the meals and workshop is required. (Speakers do not need to register.)

Although there is no registration fee, because seating is limited both in the seminar room and in our dining hall, you are required to register if you wish to attend all or part of the workshop. In addition, in order for our chef to prepare enough food, we need to have a headcount for the meals. Please note the workshop attendees are expected to pay for their lunch. Approximate range of prices is $4.00 for a salad to $9.00 for an entree. Vegetarian lunches will be available. Only cash is accepted at the cash registers. Credit cards and personal checks are not accepted.
