We review the state of the art of the theory of Euclidean random matrices, focusing on the density of their eigenvalues. Both Hermitian and non-Hermitian matrices are considered and links with simpler, standard random matrix ensembles are established. We discuss applications of Euclidean random matrices to contemporary problems in condensed matter physics, optics, and quantum chaos.

These lecture notes give an overview of how to view and solve differential equations that are common in physics. They cover Hamilton's equations, variations of the Schroedinger equation, the heat equation, the wave equation and Maxwell's equations.

Lie systems form a class of systems of first-order ordinary differential equations whose general solutions can be described in terms of certain finite families of particular solutions and a set of constants, by means of a particular type of mapping.

These lectures cover aspects of solitons with focus on applications to the quantum dynamics of supersymmetric gauge theories and string theory. The lectures consist of four sections, each dealing with a different soliton.

The octonions are the largest of the four normed division algebras. The author describes them and their relation to Clifford algebras and spinors, Bott periodicity, projective and Lorentzian geometry, Jordan algebras, and the exceptional Lie groups.
