Todd Kemp University of California San Diego Title: Random Matrices, Brownian Motion, and Lie Groups Abstract: Random matrix theory studies the behavior of the eigenvalues (or singular values) of random matrices as the dimension grows. Initiated by Wigner in the 1950s, there is now a rich and well-developed theory of the universal behavior of such random eigenvalues in models that are natural generalizations of the Gaussian case.In this talk, I will discuss a generalization of these kinds of results in a new direction. A Gaussian random matrix can be thought of as an instance of Brownian motion on a Lie algebra; this opens the door to studying the eigenvalues (and singular values) of Brownian motion on Lie groups. I will present recent progress understanding the asymptotic spectral distribution of Brownian motion on unitary groups and general linear groups.
