Talk 1: Probability measures from random matrix theory
Talk 2: Random growth and random matrices
Talk 3: Random permutations and random tilings
Abstract: The eigenvalue measures from random matrix theory give
rise to probability measures which arise not only within random
matrix theory itself but also in other contexts. I will review
the basic facts from random matrix theory and discuss in
particular the occurrence of the largest eigenvalue distribution
in last-passage percolation, random permutations, certain
growth models and in random tilings.
