Title: Random matrices and large deviations

Abstract: We give a generalist overview of random matrices and their (a)typical behaviors. In recent years, classical results have been complemented by a variety of new ones, in both the math and physics literatures, whose proofs leverage connections with special integrals over matrix groups. Some of these models exhibit interesting transition points, whose motivating relationships to eigenvector (de)localization are not yet fully understood. Based on joint work with Jonathan Husson.
