Abstract We study the one-point and two-point Green functions in a complex random matrix model to sub-leading orders in the large - N limit. We take this complex matrix model as a model for the two-state scattering problem, as applied to spin-dependent scattering of impurities in quantum Hall fluids. The density of state shows a singularity at the band center due to reflection symmetry. We also compute the one-point Green function for a generalized situation by putting random matrices on a…

Random matrix theory by the supersymmetry method beyond the sigma-model
The leading correction to the smoothed connected energy density-density correlation function is obtained for the large energy difference, within the context of the Gaussian Random Matrix Theory. In
Oscillating density of states near zero energy for matrices made of blocks with possible application to the random flux problem
We consider random Hermitian matrices made of complex blocks. The symmetries of these matrices force them to have pairs of opposite real eigenvalues, so that the average density of eigenvalues must

We consider random Hermitian matrices made of complex or realM×N rectangular blocks, where the blocks are drawn from various ensembles. These matrices haveN pairs of opposite real nonvanishing
Transfer matrices, non-Hermitian Hamiltonians and resolvents: some spectral identities
I consider the N-step transfer matrix T for a general block Hamiltonian, with eigenvalue equation where and are matrices, and provide its explicit representation in terms of blocks of the resolvent
Shape of the zeroth Landau level in graphene with nondiagonal disorder
Non-diagonal (bond) disorder in graphene broadens Landau levels (LLs) in the same way as random potential. The exception is the zeroth LL, $n=0$, which is robust to the bond disorder, since it does
Lectures on Random Matrices and Hall’s Fluids
Instead of writing up my lectures in detail, I am providing a sort of“guide book,” following a suggestion of the organizers, to the two subjects I covered in my lectures. One subject is random matrix

A diagrammatic approach is developed which enables the study of the distribution of eigenvalues of Hamiltonians consisting of a sum of a deterministic term and a random term in the case in which the random matrix evolves in time or varies as some external parameters vary.

Interlayer tunneling in some double-layered quantum Hall states that contain a neutral gapless superfluid mode is studied, in contrast to tunneling between superconductors, the critical current here is linear rather than quadratic in the tunneling amplitude.
Universality of the correlations between eigenvalues of large random matrices
Abstract The distribution of eigenvalues of random matrices appears in a number of physical situations, and it has been noticed that the resulting properties are universal, i.e. independent of
