The main speaker in spring will be professor Kurt  Johansson from the KTH, Stockholm, Sweden.

Talk 1: Probability measures from random matrix theory

Talk 2: Random growth and random matrices

Talk 3: Random permutations and random tilings

Abstract: The eigenvalue measures from random matrix theory give
rise to probability measures which arise not only within random
matrix theory itself but also in other contexts. I will review
the basic facts from random matrix theory and discuss in
particular the occurrence of the largest eigenvalue distribution
in last-passage percolation, random permutations, certain two-dimensional
growth models and in random tilings.
