A homological approach to the Gaussian Unitary Ensemble

  title={A homological approach to the Gaussian Unitary Ensemble},
  author={Owen Gwilliam and Alastair Hamilton and Mahmoud Zeinalian},
We study the Gaussian Unitary Ensemble (GUE) using noncommutative geometry and the homological framework of the Batalin-Vilkovisky (BV) formalism. Coefficients of the correlation functions in the GUE with respect to the rank N are described in terms of ribbon graph Feynman diagrams that then lead to a counting problem for the corresponding surfaces. The canonical relations provided by this homological setup determine a recurrence relation for these correlation functions. Using this recurrence…

The decorated Teichmüller space of punctured surfaces

A principal ℝ+5-bundle over the usual Teichmüller space of ans times punctured surface is introduced. The bundle is mapping class group equivariant and admits an invariant foliation. Several

Characteristic Vectors of Bordered Matrices with Infinite Dimensions I

The statistical properties of the characteristic values of a matrix the elements of which show a normal (Gaussian) distribution are well known (cf. [6] Chapter XI) and have been derived, rather

Noncommutative geometry and compactifications of the moduli space of curves

In this paper we show that the homology of a certain natural compactification of the moduli space, introduced by Kontsevich in his study of Witten's conjectures, can be described completely

Limit laws for Random matrices and free products

In earlier articles we studied a kind of probability theory in the framework of operator algebras, with the tensor product replaced by the free product. We prove here that free random variables

The virtual cohomological dimension of the mapping class group of an orientable surface

Let F = F ~ r be the mapping class group of a surface F of genus g with s punctures and r boundary components. The purpose of this paper is to establish cohomology properties of F parallel to those

Geometry of Batalin-Vilkovisky quantization

The geometry ofP-manifolds (odd symplectic manifolds) andSP-manifolds (P-manifolds provided with a volume element) is studied. A complete classification of these manifolds is given. This

The Euler characteristic of the moduli space of curves

Let Fg 1, g> 1, be the mapping class group consisting of all isotopy classes of base-point and orientation preserving homeomorphisms of a closed, oriented surface F of genus g. Let )~(~1) be its

On the Distribution of the Roots of Certain Symmetric Matrices

The distribution law obtained before' for a very special set of matrices is valid for much more general sets of real symmetric matrices of very high dimensionality.

Intersection theory on the moduli space of curves and the matrix airy function

We show that two natural approaches to quantum gravity coincide. This identity is nontrivial and relies on the equivalence of each approach to KdV equations. We also investigate related mathematical
