Tel Aviv University 
Dear all,
This week at the Horowitz seminar on Probability, Ergodic Theory and
Dynamical Systems at Tel Aviv University we are happy to have:
Speaker: Brad Rodgers, University of California, Los Angeles
Title: Statistics of the zeros of the zeta function: mesoscopic and
macroscopic phenomena
Date: Monday, December 10
Time: 14:30
Place: Schreiber 309
We review the well known microscopic correspondence between random
zeros of the Riemann zeta-function and the eigenvalues of a random
unitary or Hermitian matrix, and discuss evidence that this
correspondence extends to larger mesoscopic collections of zeros or
eigenvalues. In addition, we discuss interesting phenomena that
appears in the statistics of even larger macroscopic collections of
zeros. The terms microscopic, mesoscopic, and macroscopic are from
random matrix theory and will be defined in the talk. If time permits
we will raise some questions about general classes of point
processes, which model the distribution of zeros.
This talk is based in part on results in the papers arXiv: 1203.3275
math.NT, and arXiv: 1205.0303 math.PR.
Best regards,
