Title: Spherical spin glass models

Abstract: In the 70s, physicists proposed several models fordisordered magnetic alloys called spin glass models. Mathematically, thespherical models are random functions on the sphere in high-dimensions, andmany of the questions physicists are interested in can be phrased aspurely mathematical questions about geometric properties, extreme values,critical points, and Gibbs measures of random functions and the interplaybetween them.
