Global‐phase portrait and large‐degree asymptotics for the Kissing polynomials

We study a family of monic orthogonal polynomials that are orthogonal with respect to the varying, complex‐valued weight function, exp(nsz) , over the interval [−1,1] , where s∈C is arbitrary. This

Riemann-Hilbert Characterisation of Rational Functions with a General Distribution of Poles on the Extended Real Line Orthogonal with Respect to Varying Exponential Weights: Multi-Point Pad\'e Approximants and Asymptotics

Given $K$ arbitrary poles, which are neither necessarily distinct nor bounded, on the extended real line, a corresponding ordered base of rational functions orthogonal with respect to varying

Supercritical regime for the kissing polynomials

Electrostatic Partners and Zeros of Orthogonal and Multiple Orthogonal Polynomials

For a given polynomial P with simple zeros, and a given semiclassical weight w, we present a construction that yields a linear second-order differential equation (ODE), and in consequence, an

Do Orthogonal Polynomials Dream of Symmetric Curves?

Some “mysterious” configurations of zeros of polynomials, defined by an orthogonality condition with respect to a sum of exponential functions on the plane, that appeared as a results of the numerical experiments are discussed.

Do Orthogonal Polynomials Dream of Symmetric Curves?

The complex or non-Hermitian orthogonal polynomials with analytic weights are ubiquitous in several areas such as approximation theory, random matrix models, theoretical physics and in numerical

The Mother Body Phase Transition in the Normal Matrix Model

The normal matrix model with algebraic potential has gained a lot of attention recently, partially in virtue of its connection to several other topics as quadrature domains, inverse potential

Spectral Curves, Variational Problems and the Hermitian Matrix Model with External Source

We consider the hermitian random matrix model with external source and general polynomial potential, when the source has two distinct eigenvalues but is otherwise arbitrary. All such models studied



Critical Measures, Quadratic Differentials, and Weak Limits of Zeros of Stieltjes Polynomials

We investigate the asymptotic zero distribution of Heine-Stieltjes polynomials – polynomial solutions of second order differential equations with complex polynomial coefficients. In the case when all

Boutroux curves with external field: equilibrium measures without a variational problem

The nonlinear steepest descent method for rank-two systems relies on the notion of g-function. The applicability of the method ranges from orthogonal polynomials (and generalizations) to Painlevé

Regularity of a vector potential problem and its spectral curve

A vector equilibrium problem for the two-matrix model in the quartic/quadratic case

We consider the two sequences of biorthogonal polynomials and related to the Hermitian two-matrix model with potentials V(x) = x2/2 and W(y) = y4/4 + ty2. From an asymptotic analysis of the

Orthogonal Polynomials and $S$-curves

This paper is devoted to a study of $S$-curves, that is systems of curves in the complex plane whose equilibrium potential in a harmonic external field satisfies a special symmetry property

Determination of S-curves with applications to the theory of non-Hermitian orthogonal polynomials

This paper deals with the determination of the S-curves in the theory of non-Hermitian orthogonal polynomials with respect to exponential weights along suitable paths in the complex plane. It is

On polynomial eigenfunctions for a class of differential operators

The main topic of this doctoral thesis is asymptotic properties of zeros in polynomial families arising as eigenfunctions to exactly-solvable differential operators. The study was initially inspired

Weakly admissible vector equilibrium problems

Quadratic Differentials and Weighted Graphs on Compact Surfaces

We prove that for every simply connected graph Γ embedded in a compact surface R of genus g≥o, whose edges e i kj carry positive weights w i kj , there exist a complex structure on R and a
