    thanks in advance.

    Tough subject.

    If you want an easy (undergrad) introduction to the subject with applications in Number Theory, then there's the book:"An Introduction to Modern Number Theory" by Miller.

    More advanced textbooks are 1. Random Matrices (by Mehta), I heard that few can read this monograph (I have it at my shelf, but still didn't find time to read it :-().
    2. The textbooks by Percy Deift.
    3. Introduction to Random matrix theory by Zeitouni et al.

    I think I'll start reading the last book, though I need to refresh some probability...
