Random Matrices has over the last 10 years become an important tool in Operator Algebra Theory and in particular in Free Probability Theory. The purpose of this workshop was to bring together scientists from Operator Algebra Theory and from Random Matrix Theory, making possible a fruitful exchange of ideas.
The Workshop was organized by Uffe Haagerup, Ken Dykema and Steen Thorbjørnsen.
