Abstract

What are random matrices? Why are they useful in physics? What is
their predictive power? These questions will be answered in the first
part of the talk, and the connection between random matrices and
chaotic systems shown.

Random matrices find applications in such diverse fields of physics as
disordered systems, many-body quantum systems, chiral symmetry
breaking in QCD, and even beyond physics in number theory. Some of
these will be discussed in the remainder of the talk.
