Matrix models combine powerful computation techniques with a wide range
of applications in physics and in mathematics. This introductory talk
provides a short overview of the field, and present the main methods
employed to solve the models. In a second part, the duality uncovered by
Alday, Gaiotto and Tachikawa in 2009 is briefly reviewed. This
unexpected connection between N=2 4d SUSY gauge theories and 2d
conformal field theories is driving rapid progress in our understanding
of non-perturbative QFTs. Finally, I will explain how (generalized)
matrix models naturally fit into this framework and how they may be
employed to derive concrete results.
