Title: A survey on random matrix theory and the Riemann zeta-function

Abstract: In this talk we will survey some of the history of how random matrix theory has come into the study of the Riemann zeta-function, focusing in particular on questions surrounding moments and local spacings between zeros, and the arithmetical inputs for studying such questions. If there is sufficient time I will touch on recent work relating approximations of arithmetic functions to random matrix theory.
