We consider matrix-valued stochastic processes known as isotropic Brownian motions, and show that these can be solved exactly over complex fields. While these processes appear in a variety of questions in mathematical physics, our main motivation is their relation to a May–Wigner-like stability analysis, for which we obtain a stability phase diagram. The exact results establish the full joint probability distribution of the finite-time Lyapunov exponents, and may be used as a starting point for… 

May–Wigner transition in large random dynamical systems

We consider stability in a class of random non-linear dynamical systems characterised by a relaxation rate together with a Gaussian random vector field which is white-in-time and spatial homogeneous

From integrable to chaotic systems: Universal local statistics of Lyapunov exponents

Systems where time evolution follows a multiplicative process are ubiquitous in physics. We study a toy model for such systems where each time step is given by multiplication with an independent

Stability of large complex systems with heterogeneous relaxation dynamics

We study the probability of stability of a large complex system of size N within the framework of a generalized May model, which assumes a linear dynamics of each population size n i (with respect to

Extremal singular values of random matrix products and Brownian motion on GL(N,C)

We establish universality for the largest singular values of products of random matrices with right unitarily invariant distributions, in a regime where the number of matrix factors and size of the

Universality of local spectral statistics of products of random matrices.

The local spectral statistics of the considered random matrix products is identical with the local statistics of Dyson Brownian motion with the initial condition given by equidistant positions, with the crucial difference that this equivalence holds only locally.

Lyapunov exponents for truncated unitary and Ginibre matrices

In this note, we show that the Lyapunov exponents of mixed products of random truncated Haar unitary and complex Ginibre matrices are asymptotically given by equally spaced ‘picket-fence’ statistics.

Universality in chaos: Lyapunov spectrum and random matrix theory.

The existence of a new universality in classical chaotic systems when the number of degrees of freedom is large is proposed: the statistical property of the Lyapunov spectrum is described by random matrix theory and it is demonstrated also in the product of random matrices.

Lyapunov exponent, universality and phase transition for products of random matrices

We solve the problem on local statistics of finite Lyapunov exponents for $M$ products of $N\times N$ Gaussian random matrices as both $M$ and $N$ go to infinity, proposed by Akemann, Burda, Kieburg

Nonlinearity-generated resilience in large complex systems.

A generic nonlinear extension of May's 1972 model is considered by including all higher-order terms in the expansion around the chosen fixed point (placed at the origin) with random Gaussian coefficients, revealing a mechanism by which systems close to the tipping point become less resilient.

Interlacing Diffusions

We study in some generality intertwinings between $h$-transforms of Karlin-McGregor semigroups associated with one dimensional diffusion processes and those of their Siegmund duals. We obtain



A Brownian‐Motion Model for the Eigenvalues of a Random Matrix

A new type of Coulomb gas is defined, consisting of n point charges executing Brownian motions under the influence of their mutual electrostatic repulsions. It is proved that this gas gives an exact


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

Universal distribution of Lyapunov exponents for products of Ginibre matrices

Starting from exact analytical results on singular values and complex eigenvalues of products of independent Gaussian complex random N × N matrices, also called the Ginibre ensemble, we rederive the

Large n Limit of Gaussian Random Matrices with External Source, Part II

We continue the study of the Hermitian random matrix ensemble with external source where A has two distinct eigenvalues ±a of equal multiplicity. This model exhibits a phase transition for the value

Products of rectangular random matrices: singular values and progressive scattering.

The so-called ergodic mutual information is considered, which gives an upper bound for the spectral efficiency of a MIMO communication channel with multifold scattering.

High-Dimensional Random Fields and Random Matrix Theory

The important role of the GOE "edge scaling" spectral region and the Tracy-Widom distribution of the maximal eigenvalue of GOE matrices for providing an accurate quantitative description of the universal features of the topology trivialization scenario are revealed.

The distribution of Lyapunov exponents: Exact results for random matrices

Simple exact expressions are derived for all the Lyapunov exponents of certainN-dimensional stochastic linear dynamical systems. In the case of the product of independent random matrices, each of

Asymptotics of finite system Lyapunov exponents for some random matrix ensembles

For products PN of N random matrices of size d × d ?> , there is a natural notion of finite N Lyapunov exponents { &mgr; i } i = 1 d ?> . In the case of standard Gaussian random matrices with real,
