Titles:
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 lastpassage percolation, random permutations, certain
twodimensional
growth models and in random tilings.
