High Energy seminar: "Embracing both Wigner and `t Hooft in matrix models of 2D gravity"

Clifford V. Johnson (USC)
- David Rittenhouse Laboratory, 4C6

The main purpose of this talk is to urge us to more carefully consider how random matrix models capture theories of 2D gravity. The key is to emphasize a Wignerian view alongside the more…
