Title: Statistical properties of zeta zeros and random matrix eigenvalues

Abstract: I will talk about statistical aspects of the zeros of Riemann's zeta function, in particular, about fluctuations of the zeros around their predicted locations. These fluctuations form a random field that approaches a Gaussian field with an interesting correlation structure. I'll explain the relation to the eigenvalues of random unitary matrices and discuss recent progress in this research area.
