#### Abstract

In this talk we relate classical optimal design problems for weighted polynomial regression to random matrix theory. Exploring this relation we are able to derive old and new results in this important field of mathematical physics. In particular, we study the asymptotic eigenvalue distribution of random band matrices generalizing.
