TITLE: The Free Central Limit theorem
ABSTRACT: The Central Limit Theorem is a foundational result in classical probability theory. A similar result also exists in the theory of free probability. In this talk the classical central limit theorem will be reviewed and an introduction to free probability will be given. Then we will sketch Speicher's combinatorial proof of the Free Central Limit Theorem.
