Title: Random Matrix Statistics Beyond Wigner Matrices
Speaker: Jiaoyang Huang
Speaker Info: New York University
Brief Description:
Special Note:

The success of random matrices in modeling physical systems lies in the universality phenomenon of their eigenvalue statistics. The general belief is for systems with many strongly interacting components, we expect to see random matrix statistics. The universality is well understood for Wigner matrices, which are dense. In this talk, I will first discuss some results concerning random matrix statistics in sparse systems—the sparse random graphs. Beyond matrix setting, random matrix statistics are conjectured to govern the asymptotic behavior of various random growth models and interacting particle systems. However, this was only proven for some exactly solvable models. I will discuss a general strategy to prove the universality of random matrix statistics, and our recent result proving that for random lozenge tilings of polygons, the scaling limit of the extreme path is given by random matrix statistics.
