Non-intersecting Brownian motions and random matrices

A well known result shows that the rescaled maximal height of a system of N non-intersecting Brownian bridges starting and ending at the origin converges, as N goes to infinity, to the Tracy-Widom GOE random variable from random matrix theory. In this talk I will discuss some recent extensions of this result, involving the distribution of the height of a fixed number of paths and of the maximal height on an interval, as well as the asymptotic distribution in the case when a few paths at the top start and end at arbitrary locations. I will describe results which connect these distributions to other random matrix ensembles as well as to KPZ fluctuations and certain PDEs.
