<p>The eigenvalues of a random matrix form a random measure on the plane, which often converges to a limiting distribution. We would like to introduce some of the most important results in concerning the limiting distribution for different classes of random matrices.</p>

<p>In this talk, we zoom in the local behavior of the nearby eigenvalues. How do they interact and what can we say about the limiting behavior at microscopic scale ?</p>

<h3 class="mt-5 mb-3">View from the Chairs</h3>
<p>Greetings friends, old and new. I am writing this after completing my one year-term as the Interim Chair, happy to report that the Department is alive and well!</p>
<p>The stage set by Craig Huneke’s four-year term as the Chair was the one of a department in which the faculty and the students (graduate and undergraduate alike) were pursuing a variety of exciting avenues of the mathematical inquiry, a department committed to exploring new ways of how we teach mathematics (particularly Calculus) by adopting/ redesigning a variety of student-centered, active learning methodologies, as well as a department fully engaged in outreach across the University, the Commonwealth and beyond; hence, it should come as no surprise that the academic year 2017-2018 was a productive one. A glimpse of what transpired can be gained from the rest of the newsletter, in what follows, I will just touch on several highlights.</p>
<p>Our Calculus transformation efforts initiated by Craig and spearheaded by Paul Bourdon received a boost this year by hiring James Rolf who previously served as Director of Quantitative Learning at Yale.</p>
<p>A number of our faculty members received national honors and awards; in particular, Karen Parshall received The Albert Leon Whiteman Memorial Prize of the AMS, Julie Bergner received The Ruth I. Michler Memorial Prize of the AWM, Nicholas Kuhn and Weiqiang Wang were inducted in the 2018 Class of the Fellows of AMS, and John Imbrie and Andrei Rapinchuk held their Simons Fellowships in Mathematics.</p>
<p>On the undergraduate side, Grace Dwyer, Kevin Lee and Luca Scerbo were inducted in Phi Beta Kappa and Sebastian Haney was awarded a Goldwater Scholarship. On the graduate side, Mariano Echeverria and Veronica Shalotenko were the recipients of All-University Graduate Teaching Awards and Mike Reeks received Class of 1985 Fellowship for Creative Teaching.</p>
<p>The Institute of Mathematical Sciences (IMS) experienced a flurry of activity, including two series of Virginia Mathematics Lectures,by Yair Minsky (Yale) in the Fall and Irene Fonseca (Carnegie Mellon) in the Spring, two IMS Special Lectures by Barry Simon (Caltech), an IMS Public Lecture (co-sponsored with Physics) by Jacob Sherson (Aarhus) on citizen science, as well as two workshops. In addition, the public lectures sponsored by theA&S Diversity and Inclusion Grant, awarded to Sara Maloni, sparked the interest of the broader University community; the lectures were given by Moon Duchin (Tufts), Abby Stewart (Michigan) and Henry Segerman (Oklahoma State), addressing the topics of mathematics of gerrymandering, changing departmental culture to be more inclusive, and artistic mathematics, respectively.</p>
<p>On a personal note, I am quite ready to go back to research and teaching as my favorite pastimes. The good news is that John Imbrie is here ready to take our department to the exciting new adventures.</p>
<p><a href="http://math.virginia.edu/people/zg7c/">Zoran Grujic</a></p>
<p>Professor of Mathematics, Interim Chair 2017-2018</p>
<hr />
<p>I write this note as I begin a three-year term as chair. I am humbled by all that has been accomplished in the department during the five years since my interim chairmanship in 2012-3: four years under Craig Huneke’s guidance, and last year with Zoran Grujic at the helm. There have been quite a few new faculty added over this timespan, and with these additions comes a feeling of anticipation and activity with the new term just around the corner. I know that we are all dedicated to making the department the best it can possibly be, by working as hard as we can to find excellence in new hires and new admissions, and by fostering a nurturing environment for newcomers and veterans alike.</p>
<p>The upcoming year will be a busy one, with a faculty search in the works, several promotions to attend to (a welcome and natural consequence of the hiring we have been doing), and continued expansion of calculus reform (with new faculty member James Rolf joining Paul Bourdon in that effort).</p>
<p>Readers of this newsletter series will see over the last few issues all the momentous changes and accomplishments over these years. My heartfelt thanks goes to Zoran for accepting the chair position during the last year. During this time, I was able to pursue a year of research leave in Princeton, developing exciting ideas and new collaborations that will keep me busy during lulls in department business - assuming there are any! His dedication to the department’s well-being has been evident from the beginning. I realize that every challenge he faced and surmounted during the last year makes my work that much easier. I only hope I can serve the department as well as Craig and Zoran have. With the efforts of our dedicated faculty, staff, and students, and with the support of the Dean’s office and alumni, I have every expectation for another banner year in Kerchof Hall.</p>

<p>Shannon, 4th year Math Major with Finance concentration</p>
<ul>
<li>She had the opportunity to intern for John Hancock in the corporate finance division</li>
<li>During her internship, she worked with financial models and had many projects involving Macroeconomics and Excel</li>
<li>She believes her math background have her an advantage in her internship since she was familiar with Stochastic Processes</li>
<li><strong>Tip:</strong> Handshake is good resource for finding internships and exploring events that are related to your field</li>
</ul>
<p>Edith, Math Major with Graduate Prep concentration</p>
<ul>
<li>She participated in a REU (Research Experiences for Undergraduates) last semester which she applied to through American Mathematical Society</li>
<li>Her Biostats research included a lot of self learning, but there was a lecture series and a lot of resources such as faculty that were available</li>
<li><strong>Tip:</strong> If you don’t know where to start with REUs it may be helpful to even google different REU topics and pick out a few that really interest you</li>
</ul>
<p>Trent, Math and Computer Science major</p>
<ul>
<li>He participated in an REU through a different path than usual. He emailed the first professor on the math department page for research opportunities and it happened to be an REU</li>
<li>He also participated in a CS internship where he programmed and researched math</li>
<li>In both opportunities, he was given a lot of freedom to work on his own</li>
<li><strong>Tip:</strong> Even if you don’t get an REU, you can talk to professors to help them with research</li>
</ul>
<p>Tianshu, Math major</p>
<ul>
<li>She interned in an investment firm where she was able to apply what she learned in her Time Series class</li>
<li>Although finding an internship was hard, she notes that she learned a lot from her internships which included learning what she was really interested in.</li>
<li><strong>Tip:</strong> If you’re thinking about quantitative internships, try to take Stats and CS classes because they will be helpful in internships and make you stand out.</li>

<hr />
<p>Lie groups are one of the cornerstones of modern mathematics and mathematical physics. Throughout its history, boundaries of Lie theory have been constantly expanding to include new important structures and cover new important applications. My goal in these lectures will be to introduce yet another important direction from which new Lie-theoretic structures are currently coming. It has to do with K-theoretic counting of curves or 3-dimensional supersymmetric QFTs.</p>
<p>Unfamiliar terminology notwithstanding, there are good applications to very classical problems in mathematics.</p>
