Random matrices, L-functions and primes
October 27 to October 31, 2008

With the support of the Forschungsinstitut für Mathematik of ETH Zürich, we organized a conference in October 2008, with the broad objective of strengthening and deepening the links between Random Matrix Theory (and probability theory in general) and Number Theory, represented by L-functions and prime numbers.

See this page for files containing the presentations of the talks.

Participants included:

Philippe Biane Université de Marne-la-Vallée
Daniel Bump Stanford University

The program is now available online or here in PDF.

For interested students, the notes of Emmanuel Royer are an excellent reference for a significant part of the conference. The notes of E. Kowalski on elliptic curves and Random Matrix Theory may also be useful, as well as those on L-functions for general background.
