Universality for random matrices beyond mean field models

Analysis Seminar
Topic:Universality for random matrices beyond mean field models
Speaker:Paul Bourgade
Affiliation:New York University
Date:Wednesday, March 23
Time/Room:4:30pm - 5:30pm/S-101

The goal of this talk is to explain universality for random band matrices, for band width comparable to the matrix size. Patching of quantum unique ergodicity on successive blocks plays a key role in proving random matrix statistics for such non-mean field models.
