RMT in Sub-Atomic Physics and Beyond
This workshop shall highlight the past and current impact of Jac Verbaarschot's work on High Energy Physics and beyond using chiral Random Matrix Theory and chiral perturbation theory. In particular, the focus shall lie on recent developments in high energy physics, especially QCD and lattice QCD, and other topics such as condensed matter theory and time series analysis. Moreover, the workshop shall provide a platform for very recent developments in physics, e.g., spectral statistics of large eigenvalues of the Dirac operator and models of Majorana modes in quantum wires. New technical developments in random matrix theory, such as eigenvector statistics of non-Hermitian random matrices and exact models involving sums and products of matrices, shall also be presented. We aim to bring together experts from diverse fields who were strongly influenced by Jac Verbaarschot's work. In this way we hope to create the basis for new collaborations and innovative ideas.
