*Selberg integrals and random matrix theory*

"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)."
