Beyond Mean Field Theory and d-regular graphs

The goal of this lecture is to introduce new ideas to extend the methods described in Lecture I to d-regular graphs and random band matrices, which is not a mean-field model.  We will show that quantum unique ergodicity provides a key role in proving random matrix statistics for non-mean field models.
