The Chennai Mathematical Institute will host the "Random Matrix Reloaded" workshop in Chennai, India from November 17 to November 22, 2024.

Nuclei, especially those composed of heavier elements, exhibit a highly intricate pattern of energy levels and spectral lines that result from transitions between them. As a result, the set of numbers (matrix) encoding this information can be extensive. Random Matrix Theory (RMT) was developed as a means of drawing these numbers randomly from a suitable statistical ensemble, which has proved effective in capturing the qualitative aspects of nuclear spectra. Since its inception, these techniques have been applied successfully to a diverse range of areas in physics and mathematics. This workshop focuses on the advancements made in quantum field theory and string theory in relation to RMT, with particular attention given to the progress made over the past few decades. Throughout the week-long event, researchers from all over the world, at various stages of their careers and diverse in several ways, will convene to deliberate, exchange ideas, and establish new collaborations. The organizers of the workshop gratefully acknowledge the support provided by the Banff International Research Station at the Chennai Mathematical Institute for making this event possible.

The Chennai Mathematical Institute (CMI) in Chennai, India, and the Banff International Research Station for Mathematical Innovation and Discovery (BIRS) in Banff, are collaborative Canada-US-Mexico ventures that provide an environment for creative interaction as well as the exchange of ideas, knowledge, and methods within the Mathematical Sciences, with related disciplines and with industry. The research station in Banff is supported by Canada's Natural Science and Engineering Research Council (NSERC), the U.S. National Science Foundation (NSF), and Alberta's Advanced Education
