Integrability and matrix models

Russian Federation State Scientific Center A.I. Alikhanov Institute ofTheoretical and Experimental Physics, ul. Bolshaya Cheremushkinskaya 25, Moscow, 117259, Russian Federation

The theory of matrix models is reviewed from the point of view of its relation to integrable hierarchies. Discrete 1-matrix, 2-matrix, ’conformal’ (multicomponent) and Kontsevich models are considered in some detail, together with the Ward identites (’W-constraints’), determinantal formulas and continuum limits, taking one kind of model into another. Subtle points and directions of the future research are also discussed.
