Séminaire Bourbaki. Volume 1999/2000. Exposés 865-879. Paris: Société Mathématique de France, Astérisque 276, 411-433, Exp. No. 879 (2002).
This lecture gives a survey of recent interactions between the theory of random matrices, random permutations, and integrable models. Two sets of integrals form the basis of the lecture. It contains the following chapters: (a) Largest increasing sequences in random permutations; (b) The spectrum of random matrices; (c) Infinite Hermitian matrix ensembles; (d) Large random matrices and permutations: a direct connection via enumerative geometry; (e) Integrals, moment matrices and integrable systems.
For the entire collection see [Zbl 0981.00011].
