Random Matrices and \(L\)-functions

Members Seminar
Topic:Random Matrices and \(L\)-functions
Speaker:Alex Kontorovich
Affiliation:Yale University; Member, School of Mathematics
Date:Monday, October 28
Time/Room:2:00pm - 3:00pm/S-101

We will review some interactions between random matrix theory and distributions of zeroes of \(L\)-functions in families (the Katz-Sarnak philosophy) before presenting some recent results (joint with Dorian Goldfeld) in the higher rank setting. We will assume no background on either subject.
