New applications of random matrices

University of Michigan, USA   -

We describe some new success stories where random matrix theory has enabled new applications: these include new theory and algorithms for transmitting light perfectly through highly scattering media and for separating foreground and background of videos in highly cluttered scenes. We conclude by highlighting some newly discovered random matrix universality phenomena emerging from scattering theory and semidefinite optimization.
