|MATHEMATICAL PHYSICS SEMINAR|
|Topic:||A Statistical Mechanics Model of Random Matrices|
|Affiliation:||Institute for Advanced Study|
|Date:||Wednesday, February 4|
|Time/Room:||11:15am - 12:15pm/S-101|
Spectral prosperities of random matrices can be described in terms of correlations of a statistical mechanics model with hyperbolic symmetry. This talk will describe and analyze a simpler version of this model which is closely related to random walk in an random environment. We establish the presence of a diffusion phase in 3 dimensions. This is joint work with M. Disertori and M. Zirnbauer.
