Speaker Peter Forrester (University of Melbourne)

The Raney numbers are a generalisation of the Fuss-Catalan numbers, which occur in ballot type problems. Recently they have been shown to occur in random matrix theory as the moments of eigenvalue probability densities. Some themes resulting from this interpretation will be developed.
