Title: A tale of two integrals

Speaker: Jonathan Novak Affiliation: University of California San Diego Zoom: Contact Karen Yeats

Abstract:

The Harish-Chandra/Itzykson-Zuber (HCIZ) and Brezin-Gross-Witten (BGW) integrals are a pair matrix integrals which play a prominent role in quantum field theory. Remarkably, these ubiquitous special functions are also significant from the perspective of algebraic combinatorics: they are generating functions for certain classes of Hurwitz numbers.
