# Marcel Vonk : Topological Strings, Black Holes and Matrix Models

It is known that many random matrix models have a dual description in terms of a topological string theory. Moreover, recently, Ooguri, Strominger and Vafa have shown that one can calculate certain properties of N=2 supersymmetric black holes in four dimensions using a topological string theory. In this talk, based on hep-th/0410141, I connect these two developments, and discuss what matrix models can teach us about black holes.
