Spectral theory of random matrices.

I will not cooperate with any organ of Russian academia from now on, until the Russian occupation of Ukraine stops. This of course does not apply to individual colleagues, whether or not they wish to leave Russia or Ukraine. (In the latter cases, email me to see if there is anything I can help with.)
Three comments:
1) Save me from the BDS analogy. Anybody whose conscience dictates that they should boycott Israeli academic institutions (all or part) should do so. I expect that such people be morally honest and boycott institutions in countries with record of abuse at least as bad as Israel's. The list is long, but you do not have a choice.
2) The behavior of China in this respect (Ukraine) is shameful. I am very close to making the same decision concerning China, but not quite yet.
3) I am not proud of Israeli actions either, especially with respect to refugees. But this is IMHO a third order effect.

Due to time limitation and an inflation in the number of requests, regardless of the candidate's strength, I routinely refuse most requests to provide promotion/hiring/tenure evaluations.
This does not apply to current or past students, post-docs or co-authors of mine, for whom I am happy to provide evaluation.

In July 2001, I gave a course on RWRE in the XXXI summer school in probability, St Flour, France. For a version of the notes, which are now published as part of Volume 1837 of Springer's Lecture notes in Mathematics, see Notes . A typo list for the published notes is Here , and for a shortened and updated version of the notes, see Rio Notes and Columbia Notes . To see what probabilists do in St Flour, see St Flour life.

Lecture notes concerning the maxima of branching random walks and Gaussian free fields are available here. Comments are welcomed.
