Title: Matrix integrals and random matrix theory from finite spectral triples


I shall discuss ongoing work where we study random matrix models suggested by noncommutative geometry and the quest to quantize gravity. As a rule these models are far more complicated than most of the well understood matrix models.

The possibility of a rigorous proof of a phase transition as the coupling constants varies is  a very interesting and challenging problem. I shall provide necessary background material in the talk.
