We develop a first-principles approach to compute the counting statistics in the ground state of N noninteracting spinless fermions in a general potential in arbitrary dimensions d (central for d>1). In a confining potential, the Fermi gas is supported over a bounded domain. In d=1, for specific potentials, this system is related to standard random matrix ensembles. We study the quantum fluctuations of the number of fermions N_{D} in a domain D of macroscopic size in the bulk of the support. We…

Gap Probability for the Hard Edge Pearcey Process

The hard edge Pearcey process is universal in random matrix theory and many other stochastic models. This paper deals with the gap probability for the thinned/unthinned hard edge Pearcey process over

Toeplitz determinants with a one-cut regular potential and Fisher--Hartwig singularities I. Equilibrium measure supported on the unit circle

We consider Toeplitz determinants whose symbol has: (i) a one-cut regular potential V , (ii) Fisher–Hartwig singularities, and (iii) a smooth function in the background. The potential V is associated

Disk counting statistics near hard edges of random normal matrices: the multi-component regime

The “hard edge regime” where all disk boundaries are a distance of order 1 n away from the hard wall, where n is the number of points and the asymptotics of the moment generating function are of the form exp.

Finiteness of entanglement entropy in collective field theory

Abstract We explore the question of finiteness of the entanglement entropy in gravitational theories whose emergent space is the target space of a holographic dual. In the well studied duality of

Exponential moments for disk counting statistics at the hard edge of random normal matrices

It is proved that the moment generating function of the disk counting statistics of a model Mittag-Leffler ensemble in the presence of a hard wall enjoys asymptotics of the form the semi-hard edge.

Unified Light-Matter Floquet Theory and its Application to Quantum Communication

Periodically-driven quantum systems can exhibit a plethora of intriguing non-equilibrium phenomena, that can be analyzed using Floquet theory. Naturally, Floquet theory is employed to describe the

On the characteristic polynomial of the eigenvalue moduli of random normal matrices

We study the characteristic polynomial p n ( x ) = Q n j =1 ( | z j | − x ) where the z j are drawn from the Mittag-Leffler ensemble, i.e. a two-dimensional determinantal point process which

We study a system of $N$ non-interacting spin-less fermions trapped in a confining potential, in arbitrary dimensions $d$ and arbitrary temperature $T$. The presence of the trap introduces an edge

We investigate quantum correlations in the ground state of noninteracting Fermi gases of N particles trapped by an external space-dependent harmonic potential, in any dimension. For this purpose,

Point processes in arbitrary dimension from fermionic gases, random matrix theory, and number theory

It is well known that one can map certain properties of random matrices, fermionic gases, and zeros of the Riemann zeta function to a unique point process on the real line . Here we analytically

Noninteracting fermions in a trap and random matrix theory

We review recent advances in the theory of trapped fermions using techniques borrowed from random matrix theory (RMT) and, more generally, from the theory of determinantal point processes. In the
