DESCRIPTION:Title: Mat
rix Means and a Novel High-dimensional Shrinkage Phenomenon\nby Asad L
odhia (University of Michigan) as part of Junior Integrable Probability Se
minar\n\n\nAbstract\nWe analyze the impact on covariance estimation of tak
ing a Harmonic mean as opposed to an arithmetic mean of a collection of Wi
shart Random Matrices in high dimensions. We see that the Harmonic mean im
proves on the operator norm estimation but curiously does not improve eige
nvector recovery as suggested by the Davis-Kahan Inequality. Based on join
t work with E. Levina and K. Levin\n

DESCRIPTION:Title: Lya
punov exponents of the SHE for general initial data\nby Yier Lin (Colu
mbia University) as part of Junior Integrable Probability Seminar\n\n\nAbs
tract\nWe consider the 1+1 dimensional stochastic heat equation (SHE) with
multiplicative white noise and the Cole-Hopf solution of the Kardar-Paris
i-Zhang (KPZ) equation. We show an exact way of computing the Lyapunov exp
onents of the SHE for a large class of initial data which includes any bou
nded deterministic positive initial data and the stationary initial data.
As a consequence\, we derive exact formulas for the upper tail large devia
tion rate functions of the KPZ equation for general initial data. Joint wo
rk with Promit Ghosal.\n\nGo to https://sites.google.com/view/junior-ips f

DESCRIPTION:Title: Uni
versality of geodesic tree in last passage percolation\nby Ofer Busani
(University of Bristol) as part of Junior Integrable Probability Seminar\
n\n\nAbstract\nIn Last Passage Percolation (LPP) one assumes i.i.d. weight
s on the lattice Z^2. The geodesic from the anti-diagonal h(x)=-x to the p
oint (N\,N) is an up-right path starting from h and terminating at (N\,N)
on which the total weight is maximal. Consider now a cylinder H of width
εN^2/3 and length ε^{3/2-}N centered around the point (N\,N) and along t
he straight line going from the point (0\,0) to the point (N\,N). The geod
esic tree consists of all the geodesics going from h and terminating in th
e cylinder H. We show that for exponential LPP\, for a large class of weig
hts on h(x) and with high probability\, the geodesic tree coincides on H w
ith a universal stationary tree.\n

DESCRIPTION:Title: Lim
it theorems for descents of Mallows permutations\nby Jimmy He (Stanfor
d University) as part of Junior Integrable Probability Seminar\n\n\nAbstra
ct\nThe Mallows measure on the symmetric group gives a way to generate ran
dom permutations which are more likely to be sorted than not. There has be
en a lot of recent work to try and understand the limiting properties of M
allows permutations. I'll discuss recent work on the joint distribution of
descents\, a statistic counting the number of "drops" in a permutation\,
and descents in its inverse\, generalizing work of Chatterjee and Diaconis
\, and Vatutin. The proof is new even in the uniform case and uses Stein's
method with a size-bias coupling as well as a regenerative representation
of Mallows permutations.\n

DESCRIPTION:Title: Per
iodic TASEP: when integrable systems meet integrable probability (once aga
in)\nby Guilherme Silva (Universidade de São Paulo) as part of Junior
Integrable Probability Seminar\n\n\nAbstract\nIt is well-known that the T
racy-Widom distributions admit representations involving solutions to part
icular integrable systems. Other marginals of the KPZ fixed point\, such a
s the Airy2 process\, also admit similar representations. And very recentl
y\, first by Quastel and Remenik and shortly afterwards by Le Doussal\, st
atistics of the KPZ fixed point were found to be connected to the KP equat
ion.\n\nIn this talk\, we plan to overview some analogue connections\, but
now for distributions of the periodic TASEP (pTASEP)\, which are believed
to be the universal analogue of the KPZ universality class for periodic s
etup. For the step periodic initial condition\, we compare the limiting on
e-point distribution of the pTASEP with the GUE Tracy-Widom distribution\,
highlighting the key features that allow to connect both of them to coupl
ed systems of mKdV and heat equations. We also discuss some asymptotic pro
perties of this limiting distribution\, showing that it interpolates betwe
en the GUE Tracy-Widom and a Gaussian. For pTASEP with general initial con
dition\, we also explain how very few analytic aspects of its limiting one
-point distribution give a connection with the KP equation\, in analogous
way to Quastel-Remenik’s mentioned result. This talk is based on joint w
ork with Jinho Baik (University of Michigan) and Zhipeng Liu (University o
f Kansas). Time permitting\, we also briefly discuss a work in progress wi
th Jinho Baik and Andrei Prokhorov (University of Michigan)\, greatly exte
nding the mentioned results to multipoint distributions.\n

DESCRIPTION:Title: A n
on-Hermitian generalisation of the Marchenko-Pastur distribution: from the
circular law to multi-criticality\nby Sung-Soo Byun (Seoul National U
niversity) as part of Junior Integrable Probability Seminar\n\n\nAbstract\
nIn this talk\, I will discuss complex eigenvalues of the product of two r
ectangular complex Ginibre matrices that are correlated through a non-Herm
iticity parameter.\n\nIn the first half\, I will present the limiting spec
tral distribution of the model\, which interpolates between classical resu
lts for random matrices on the global scale\, the circular law and the Mar
chenko-Pastur distribution. In the second half\, I will explain the micros
copic behaviours of the model\, which includes the limiting local correlat
ion kernel at multi-criticality\, where the interior of the spectrum split
s into two connected components.\n\nThe global statistics follows from the
solution of certain equilibrium measure problem and concentration for the
2D Coulomb gases on Frostman’s equilibrium measure\, whereas the local
statistics follows from a saddle point analysis of the kernel of orthogona
l Laguerre polynomials in the complex plane.\n\nThis is based on joint wor
k with Gernot Akemann and Nam-Gyu Kang.\n

DESCRIPTION:Title: Add
ition of Random Matrices and Quantized Analogues\nby Andrew Ahn (Colum
bia University) as part of Junior Integrable Probability Seminar\n\n\nAbst
ract\nThe main objects of this talk are particle processes coming from the
eigenvalues of sums of unitarily invariant random matrices and quantized
analogues which arise from tensor products of irreducible representations
of the unitary group. We outline an integrable probability approach to obt
aining Airy point process fluctuations at the edge under an asymptotic reg
ime where the number of summands or tensor products is sufficiently large.

DESCRIPTION:Title: The
TASEP on trees\nby Dominik Schmid (TU Munich) as part of Junior Integ
rable Probability Seminar\n\n\nAbstract\nWe study the totally asymmetric s
imple exclusion process (TASEP) on rooted trees. This means that particles
are generated at the root and can only jump in the direction away from th
e root under the exclusion constraint. Our interests are two-fold. On the
one hand\, we study invariant measures for the TASEP on trees and provide
sufficient conditions for the existence of non-trivial equilibrium distrib
utions. On the other hand\, we consider the evolution of the TASEP on tree
s when all sites are initially empty and study currents.\n\nThis talk is b
ased on joint work with Nina Gantert and Nicos Georgiou.\n
