2D dilaton-gravity, matrix models, and the minimal string

room Zoom, instructions in abstract

In the first part of this talk I will review the recent realization that a large class of two-dimensional theories of dilaton-gravity in asymptotically AdS space are holographically dual to a random matrix model. In this description the matrix represents a random boundary Hamiltonian, and its probability distribution depends on the dilaton potential in a specific way. In the second part of the talk I will explain the relation between two-dimensional dilaton-gravity and the minimal string theory. -------------------- Part of the London Integrability Journal Club.
