The Resurgent Quartic Matrix Model: A Progress Report
In this talk we will review some recent developments on the quartic matrix model, and its use as a testing ground for ideas of so-called "resurgence". Without going into extreme technical detail we will try to present the relations that were studied and tested, the methods to extract predictions and data in the quartic matrix model (both in the one- and two-cut phases), as well as some natural interpretations of some of the new features. Finally, we will mention some open problems and future directions.
