Asymptotic freeness of independent Haar distributed unitary matrices was discovered by Voiculescu. Many refinements have been obtained, including strong asymptotic freeness of random unitaries and strong asymptotic freeness of random permutations acting on the orthogonal of the Perron-Frobenius eigenvector. In this talk, we consider a new matrix unitary model appearing naturally from representation theory of compact groups. We fix a non-trivial signature, i.e. two finite sequences of non-increasing natural numbers, and for n large enough, consider the irreducible representation of Un associated to this signature. We show that strong asymptotic freeness holds in this generalized context when drawing independent copies of the Haar measure. We also obtain the orthogonal variant of this result. This is a joint work with Benoît Collins.
