XV Brunel — Bielefeld Workshop
Random Matrix Theory and Applications
Date: 5 – 7 December 2019
Convenors: Gernot Akemann (Bielefeld, GER), Igor Krasovsky (London, GBR), Dmitry Savin (London, GBR), Igor Smolyarenko (London, GBR)
The goal of this annual workshop is to gather the community of mathematicians, physicists and other scientists who work in the area of random matrix theory and its applications in a broad sense. The central idea is to combine the influence of randomness and global symmetries to make universal, statistical predictions. The applications span topics ranging from the Riemann ζ-function in pure mathematics to many-body particle systems in physics. The workshop alternates between Brunel University in London and Bielefeld's ZiF since 2011. This year's topics will include time series analysis, random band matrices related to random Schrödinger operators, and the asymptotic analysis of determinantal structures. The workshop is organised back-to-back with a workshop on the same topic at the prestigious Mathematisches Forschungsinstitut Oberwolfach (MFO) and we have been able to attract three international speakers from this programme, including one of the organisers.
