List of Participants

Random Matrix Theory has been a rapidly developing field attracting interest from both mathematicians and physicists. The goal of this workshop to stimulate the interaction between mathematicians and physicists interested in fundamental problems in Random Matrix Theory and in applications of Random Matrix Theory to different branches of mathematics and physics. We hope to achieve this by means of a series of lectures by world-experts on the most important developments in their field during the past decade. This workshop has been made possible through a generous donation by James H. Simons.
