Monday 5th March 2012 – 15:45 to 16:45

Speakers: Charles Bordenave (University of Toulouse)

In this talk, we will consider various probability distributions on the set of stochastic matrices with n states and on the set of Laplacian/Kirchhoff matrices on n states. They will arise naturally from the conductance model on n states with i.i.d conductances. With the help of random matrix theory, we will study the spectrum of these processes.

This is joint work with P. Caputo and D. Chafai.
