Free Probability, Random Matrices, and Non-Commutative Rational Functions
In free probability we want to understand the distribution of functions in
non-commuting variables. I will explain what this means and what we actually
calculate. In particular, the variables will typically be random matrices or
operators on Hilbert spaces and a prominent class of functions will be given by
non-commutative rational functions.
For this talk, no prior knowledge on operator algebras or random matrices or
free probability is assumed.
