The eigenstate thermalization hypothesis (ETH) is a cornerstone in our understanding of quantum statistical mechanics. In the first part of the talk, I will give a broad overview of thermalization of isolated quantum systems, and of the role played by randommatrix descriptions. The extent to which ETH holds for nonlocal operators (observables) is an open question. In the second half of the talk, I will address this question using an analogy with random matrix theory.

What is an integrable system? Intuitively, an integrable system is a dynamical system that can be integrated directly. While in principle integrable systems should be very rare, it happens that in nature, a lot of fundamental systems are integrable such as many models of nonlinear waves, models in statistical mechanics and in theory of random matrices. The study of nonlinear waves has led to many remarkable discoveries, one of them being 'solitons', found some 50 years ago. Solitons motivated the development of the Inverse Scattering Transform (IST). History and some examples will be discussed. Finally I will present some universality results about small dispersion limits and semiclassical limits of nonlinear dispersive waves.

Modern cosmology has been remarkably successful in describing the Universe from a second after the Big Bang until today. However, its physics before that time is still much less certain. It profoundly involves particle theory beyond the Standard Model to explain longstanding puzzles: the origin of the observed matter asymmetry, nature of dark matter, massive neutrinos, and cosmic inflation. In this talk, I will explain that a new framework based on embedding axioninflation in leftright symmetric gauge extensions of the SM can possibly solve and relate these seemingly unrelated mysteries of modern cosmology. The baryon asymmetry and dark matter today are remnants of a pure quantum effect (chiral anomaly) in inflation which is the source of CP violation in inflation. As a smoking gun, this setup has robust observable signatures for the GW background to be probed by future CMB missions and laser interferometer detectors.

Radio channel modeling and system performance analysis for wireless communications exploit random matrix theory since the very introduction of the multiantenna transmission paradigm in late '90's. Matrices from polynomial ensembles have been providing realistic and analytically handy models for communications taking place at frequencies typical of the third and fourth generation of mobile telephony, and still serve to analyze lowfrequency performance in the most recent and currently developing fifth generation. The shift to farhigher frequencies planned for fifth and, especially, sixth generation of mobile communications is leading to the adoption of radio channel models putting emphasis on geometryrelated rather than on scatteringrelated information. In this scenario, both Euclidean as well as random Vandermonde matrices play a major role. The talk focuses on a representative case of 6G multiantenna link, where signal transmission from transmit to receive uniform linear array is aided by a socalled "reflective intelligent surface", a passive device with signalbearing capabilities only. This involves the analysis of products of random Vandermonde matrices with complex entries of unit modulus, with either random or deterministic matrices interspersed.
