“Motivic Random Variables and Random Matrices” As first shown by Katz-Sarnak, the zero spacing of L-functions of smooth plane curves over finite fields approximate the infinite random matrix statistics observed experimentally for the zero spacing of the Riemann-Zeta function (arbitrarily well by first taking the size of the finite field to infinity, and then the degree of the curve to infinity).
