This book presents many applications of the use of matrix ensembles in the fields of nuclear structure and nuclear reactions. The basic techniques of calculating density distributions are detailed, and recent developments in the use of anticommuting Grassmann variables in calculating average cross-sections are described. Other special features include examples of calculations of interesting physical properties, the development of statistical models for tackling the configuration interaction problem, and a detailed account of the volume element in the space of complex orthogonal matrices.
