Some new perspectives on moments of random matrices
Mathematical Physics Seminar
1st February 2019, 2:00 pm – 3:00 pm
Howard House, 4th Floor Seminar Room
The study of ‘moments’ of random matrices (expectations of traces of powers of the matrix) is a rich and interesting subject, mainly due to its connections to enumerative geometry. I will give some background on this and then describe some recent work which offers some new perspectives (and new results).
This talk is based on joint work with Antoine Dahlqvist and Neil O'Connell.
