There is a substantial literature; for an introduction, you could start with the chapter by Keating and Snaith in the Handbook of Random Matrix Theory. For a more specialized overview, take a look at Recent Perspectives in Random Matrix Theory and Number Theory.

For a selection of research articles on this topic, see the list given by Matthew Watkins (scroll to the bottom of the page).
