In this paper we study the distribution of eigenvalues for two sets of random Hermitian matrices and one set of random unitary matrices. The statement of the problem as well as its method of investigation go back originally to the work of Dyson [i] and I. M. Lifsic [2], [3] on the energy spectra of disordered systems, although in their probability character our sets are more similar to sets studied by Wigner [4]. Since the approaches to the sets we consider are the same, we present in detail…

Universality of Wigner random matrices: a survey of recent results
This is a study of the universality of spectral statistics for large random matrices. Considered are symmetric, Hermitian, or quaternion self-dual random matrices with independent identically
Number statistics in random matrices and applications to quantum systems
The main goal of this thesis is to answer the question: given a random matrix with real spectrum, how many eigenvalues fall between a and b? This is a fundamental question in random matrix theory and
Dyson equation and eigenvalue statistics of random matrices
The eigenvalue density of many large random matrices is well approximated by a deterministic measure, the \emph{self-consistent density of states}. In the present work, we show this behaviour for
On the empirical distribution of eigenvalues of a class of large dimensional random matrices
A stronger result on the limiting distribution of the eigenvalues of random Hermitian matrices of the form A + XTX*, originally studied in Marcenko and Pastur, is presented. Here, X(N - n), T(n - n),

Limiting Spectral Distributions of Large Dimensional Random Matrices
Models where the number of parameters increases with the sample size, are becoming increasingly important in statistics. This necessitates a close look at the statistical properties of eigenvalues of
On Asymptotic Behavior of Multilinear Eigenvalue Statistics of Random Matrices
We prove the Law of Large Numbers and the Central Limit Theorem for analogs of U- and V- (von Mises) statistics of eigenvalues of random matrices as their size tends to infinity. We show first that
Partial transpose of random quantum states: exact formulas and meanders
We investigate the asymptotic behavior of the empirical eigenvalues distribution of the partial transpose of a random quantum state. The limiting distribution was previously investigated via Wishart
Eigenvalue distribution of large dilute random matrices
We study the eigenvalue distribution of dilute N×N random matrices HN that in the pure (undiluted) case describe the Hopfield model. We prove that for the fixed dilution parameter a the normalized
The relation between the eigenvalues of random matrices and the zeros of orthogonal polynomials
This aim of this work is to explore the strong connection between random matrix theory and orthogonal polynomials by analyzing the eigenvalues and the zeros. It consists of four chapters and an


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.
