CARMA COLLOQUIUM Speaker: Peter Forrester, Department of Mathematics and Statistics, The University of Melbourne Title: Selberg integrals and random matrix theory Location: Room V129, Mathematics Building (Callaghan Campus) The University of Newcastle Time and Date: 4:00 pm, Thu, 24th Feb 2011 Abstract: "In this talk I'll exhibit the interplay between Selberg integrals (interpreted broadly) and random matrix theory. Here an important role is played by the basic matrix operations of a random corank 1 projection (this reduces the number of nonzero eigenvalues by one) and bordering (this increases the number of eigenvalues by one)."
