Polynomial ensembles are a sub-class of probability measures within determinantal point processes. Examples include products of independent random matrices, with applications to Lyapunov exponents, and random matrices with an external field, that may serve as schematic models of quantum field theories with temperature. We first analyse expectation values of ratios of an equal number of characteristic polynomials in general polynomial ensembles. Using Schur polynomials, we show that polynomial… 

Universal microscopic spectrum of the unquenched QCD Dirac operator at finite temperature

In the ε-regime of chiral perturbation theory the spectral correlations of the Euclidean QCD Dirac operator close to the origin can be computed using random matrix theory. To incorporate the effect

Winding number statistics for chiral random matrices: Averaging ratios of determinants with parametric dependence

Topological invariance is a powerful concept in different branches of physics as they are particularly robust under perturbations. We generalize the ideas of computing the statistics of winding

Characteristic Polynomials in Coupled Matrix Models

We study correlation functions of the characteristic polynomials in coupled matrix models based on the Schur polynomial expansion, which manifests their determinantal structure.

Universality for Multiplicative Statistics of Hermitian Random Matrices and the Integro-Differential Painlevé II Equation

We study multiplicative statistics for the eigenvalues of unitarily-invariant Hermitian random matrix models. We consider one-cut regular polynomial potentials and a large class of multiplicative

On the moments of characteristic polynomials

We calculate the moments of the characteristic polynomials of $N\times N$ matrices drawn from the Hermitian ensembles of Random Matrix Theory, at a position t in the bulk of the

A determinantal point process governed by an integrable projection kernel is Giambelli compatible

Abstract. The first main result of this note, Theorem 1.2, establishes the determinantal identities (7) and (8) for the expectation, under a determinantal point process governed by an integrable



Averages of characteristic polynomials in random matrix theory

We compute averages of products and ratios of characteristic polynomials associated with orthogonal, unitary, and symplectic ensembles of random matrix theory. The Pfaffian/determinantal formulae for

A transformation formula is derived for the joint densities of a product of two independent bi-unitarily invariant random matrices, the first from a polynomial ensemble and the second from aPolynomialsemble of derivative type.

Singular values of products of random matrices and polynomial ensembles

Akemann, Ipsen, and Kieburg showed recently that the squared singular values of a product of M complex Ginibre matrices are distributed according to a determinantal point process. We introduce the

Universal Results for Correlations of Characteristic Polynomials: Riemann-Hilbert Approach

We prove that general correlation functions of both ratios and products of characteristic polynomials of Hermitian random matrices are governed by integrable kernels of three different types: a)

Characteristic Polynomials of Complex Random Matrix Models

On characteristic polynomials for a generalized chiral random matrix ensemble with a source

We evaluate averages involving characteristic polynomials, inverse characteristic polynomials and ratios of characteristic polynomials for a N×N random matrix taken from a L-deformed chiral Gaussian

Derivation of determinantal structures for random matrix ensembles in a new way

There are several methods to treat ensembles of random matrices in symmetric spaces, circular matrices, chiral matrices and others. Orthogonal polynomials and the supersymmetry method are particular


In this review we summarise recent results for the complex eigenvalues and singular values of finite products of finite size random matrices, their correlation functions and asymptotic limits. The

An exact formula for general spectral correlation function of random Hermitian matrices

We have found an exact formula expressing a general correlation function containing both products and ratios of characteristic polynomials of random Hermitian matrices. The answer is given in the

Singular Value Statistics of Matrix Products with Truncated Unitary Matrices

We prove that the squared singular values of a fixed matrix multiplied with a truncation of a Haar distributed unitary matrix are distributed by a polynomial ensemble. This result is applied to a
