Event description: 

We would like to discuss a few problems that we have been working on lately: 
(1) Random perturbation of a large matrix (how does it effect the eigenvalues and eigenvectors).
(2) Products of random matrices (spectral distribution)
(3) How often is a random +-1 matrix normal ? 
(4) Spectral properties of Preferential attachment graphs.
