Title Of Talk: Discrete analogues of Macdonald-Mehta integrals
Abstract: I shall consider certain discretisations of the Macdonald-Mehta integrals. There are ten families of such discretisations which can be evaluated in closed form. I shall sketch the ideas which go into the proofs of these identities, which come from identities for classical group characters, combinatorics of non-intersecting lattice paths, and a transformation formula for elliptic hypergeometric series, respectively. This is joint work with Richard Brent and Ole Warnaar.
