Séminaire de la fédération PHSYTAT SUD : Marcos Marino

Matrix models and string theory

Marcos Marino (University of Geneva)

In this talk I will try to provide a pedagogical overview of the interplay between random matrices and string theory. I will start with the « old » matrix models of non-critical strings and their applications to statistical systems, and explain some more recent developments on the connection between matrix models, gravity, and superstrings.
