# A Note on the Eigenvalue Density of Random Matrices

@article{Kiessling1999ANO, title={A Note on the Eigenvalue Density of Random Matrices}, author={Michael K.-H. Kiessling and Herbert Spohn}, journal={Communications in Mathematical Physics}, year={1999}, volume={199}, pages={683-695} }

Abstract:The distribution of eigenvalues of N×N random matrices in the limit N→∞ is the solution to a variational principle that determines the ground state energy of a confined fluid of classical unit charges. This fact is a consequence of a more general theorem, proven here, in the statistical mechanics of unstable interactions. Our result establishes the eigenvalue density of some ensembles of random matrices which were not covered by previous theorems.
