Dynamical systems and probabilistic methods in partial differential equations : 1994 Summer Seminar on Dynamical Systems and
Probabilistic Methods for Nonlinear Waves, June 20July 1, 1994, MSRI, Berkeley, CA by
Summer Seminar on Dynamical Systems and Probabilistic Methods for Nonlinear Waves(
Book
)
12 editions published between 1995 and 1998 in English and held by 279 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This volume contains some of the lectures presented in June 1994 during the AMSSIAM Summer Seminar at the Mathematical Sciences Research Institute in Berkeley. The goal of the seminar was to introduce participants to as many interesting and active applications of dynamical systems and probabilistic methods to problems in applied mathematics as possible. As a result, this book covers a great deal of ground. Nevertheless, the pedagogical orientation of the lectures has been retained, and therefore the book will serve as an ideal introduction to these varied and interesting topics

Orthogonal polynomials and random matrices : a RiemannHilbert approach by
Percy Deift(
Book
)
28 editions published between 1998 and 2002 in English and held by 272 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This volume expands on a set of lectures held at the Courant Institute on RiemannHilbert problems, orthogonal polynomials, and random matrix theory. The goal of the course was to prove universality for a variety of statistical quantities arising in the theory of random matrix models. The central question was the following: Why do very general ensembles of random n {\times} n matrices exhibit universal behavior as n {\rightarrow} {\infty}? The main ingredient in the proof is the steepest descent method for oscillatory RiemannHilbert problems

Random matrix theory : invariant ensembles and universality by
Percy Deift(
Book
)
11 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 188 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This book features a unified derivation of the mathematical theory of the three classical types of invariant random matrix ensemblesorthogonal, unitary, and symplectic. The authors follow the approach of Tracy and Widom, but the exposition here contains a substantial amount of additional material, in particular, facts from functional analysis and the theory of Pfaffians. The main result in the book is a proof of universality for orthogonal and symplectic ensembles corresponding to generalized Gaussian type weights following the authors' prior work. New, quantitative error estimates are derived."Jacket

applications in honor of Percy Deift's 60th birthday, May 2226, 2006, Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences, New York
University, New York by
Jinho Baik(
Book
)
15 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 180 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This volume contains the proceedings of a conference held at the Courant Institute in 2006 to celebrate the 60th birthday of Percy A. Deift. The program reflected the wideranging contributions of Professor Deift to analysis with emphasis on recent developments in Random Matrix Theory and integrable systems. The articles in this volume present a broad view on the state of the art in these fields. Topics on random matrices include the distributions and stochastic processes associated with local eigenvalue statistics. as well as their appearance in combinatorial models such us TASEP, last passage percolation and tilings. The contributions in integrable systems mostly deal with focusing NLS, the CamassaHolm equation and the Toda lattice, A number of papers are devoted to techniques that are used in both fields. These techniques are related to orthogonal polynomials, operator determinunts, special functions, RiemannHilbert problems, direct and inverse spectral theory. Of special interest is the article of Percy Deift in which he discusses some open problems of Random Matrix Theory und the theory of integrable systems."Jacket

Combinatorics and random matrix theory by
Jinho Baik(
Book
)
7 editions published in 2016 in English and Undetermined and held by 132 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Over the last fifteen years a variety of problems in combinatorics have been solved in terms of random matrix theory. More precisely, the situation is as follows : the problems at hand are probabilistic in nature and, in appropriate scaling limit, it turns out that certain key quantities associated with these problems behave statistically like the eigenvalues of a (large) random matrix. Said differently, random matrix theory provided a "stochastic special function theory" for a broad and growing class of problems in combinatorics. The goal of this book is to analyze in detail two key examples of this phenomenon, viz., Ulam's problem for increasing subsequences of random permutations and domino tilings of the Aztec diamond. Other examples are also described along the way, but in less detail."Page 4 de la couverture

Random matrix theory, interacting particle systems, and integrable systems by
Percy Deift(
Book
)
7 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and Undetermined and held by 120 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Random matrix theory is at the intersection of linear algebra, probability theory and integrable systems, and as a wide range of applications in physics, engineering, multivariate statistics and beyond. This volume is based on a Fall 2010 MSRI program which generated the solution of longstanding questions on universalities of Wigner matrices and betaensembles, and opened new research directions especially in relation to the KPZ universality class of interacting particle systems and lowrank perturbations. The book contains review articles and research contributions on all these topics, in addition to other core aspects of random matrix theory such as integrability and free probability theory. It will give both established and new researchers insights into the most recent advances in field and the connections among many subfields."

Two rotating black holes in the stationary axially symmetric case by Konstantin G Aslanidi(
)
1 edition published in 2001 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The topic of this thesis is a two body problem in General Relativity in which space time is stationary and axially symmetric. Two rotating black holes are located on the axis of the symmetry. In the stationary axially symmetric case, the Einstein's vacuum equations are equivalent to the Ernst equation. A class of solutions for the Ernst equation is constructed using Lax pairs and the RiemannHilbert approach. A solution for the configuration in question is extracted from the general formula. The space time is reconstructed and the force acting between the bodies is computed as a flux of the spatial part of the stressenergy tensor through some two dimensional surface surrounding one of the bodies
