Random Matrices and Random Landscapes

Conference in honour of Yan Fyodorov's 60th birthday

24-29 July 2022, Congressi Stefano Franscini, Ascona, Switzerland


The conference is on the mathematics of complex physical systems, with an emphasis on the interaction between mathematics and physics. The particular focus is on random matrix theory and its applications. The programme is aligned to four key topics:

  • Random landscapes and dynamics of glassy systems
  • Random matrices, random Schrödinger operators and sigma-models
  • Multifractality and log-correlated random fields
  • Coulomb gases and large deviations
  • Format

  • 30 invited talks
  • 20 contributed posters, each with a short preview talk; CSF Prize for best poster
  • Confirmed Participants
