Working in sectors of large global charge leads to important simplifications when studying strongly coupled CFTs. In this talk I will introduce the large-charge expansion via the simple example of the O(2) model and apply it in a number of other situations displaying a richer structure, such as non-Abelian vector models and supersymmetric theories.

Dyson's threefold approach suggests to deal with real/complex/quaternion random matrices as beta=1/2/4 instances of beta-ensembles.
We complement this approach by the new beta=\infty point. Our central objects are G\inftyE ensemble, which is a counterpart of classical Gaussian Orthogonal/Unitary/Symplectic ensembles, and Airy_\infty line ensemble, which is a collection of continuous curves serving as a scaling limit for largest eigenvalues at beta=\infty. On our way we encounter unusual orthogonal polynomials, random walks, and zeros of the Airy function.
