Abstract: 

The theory of random matrices has been growing over the past twenty years at a rapid pace. One intriguing feature of this field are its manifold connections and applications to seemingly unrelated topics in mathematics and physics. In this talk we survey some of these developments by discussing key results on the statistics of eigenvalues for a few basic classes of random matrices. Special emphasis will be given to determinantal ensembles that link random matrices to some integrable models in statistical mechanics.
