Pseudo-Hermitian Random Matrix Models: General Formalism

  title={Pseudo-Hermitian Random Matrix Models: General Formalism},
  author={Joshua Feinberg and Roman Riser},
Pseudo-hermitian matrices are matrices hermitian with respect to an indefinite metric. They can be thought of as the truncation of pseudo-hermitian operators, defined over some Krein space, together with the associated metric, to a finite dimensional subspace. As such, they can be used, in the usual spirit of random matrix theory, to model chaotic or disordered PT -symmetric quantum systems, or their gain-loss-balanced classical analogs, in the phase of broken PT -symmetry. The eigenvalues of…

Pseudo-hermitian random matrix theory: a review
We review our recent results on pseudo-hermitian random matrix theory which were hitherto presented in various conferences and talks. (Detailed accounts of our work will appear soon in separate


Non-hermitian random matrix theory: Method of hermitian reduction
Abstract We consider random non-hermitian matrices in the large- N limit. The power of analytic function theory cannot be brought to bear directly to analyze non-hermitian random matrices, in
Non-hermitian random matrix models
We introduce an extension of the diagrammatic rules in random matrix theory and apply it to non-hermitian random matrix models using the 1/N approximation. A number of one-and two-point functions are
Non-gaussian non-hermitian random matrix theory: Phase transition and addition formalism
Abstract We apply the recently introduced method of hermitization to study in the large N limit non-hermitian random matrices that are drawn from a large class of circularly symmetric non-gaussian
Non-Hermitian Hamiltonians of Lie algebraic type
We analyse a class of non-Hermitian Hamiltonians, which can be expressed bilinearly in terms of generators of a sl(2,R)-Lie algebra or their isomorphic su(1,1)-counterparts. The Hamlitonians are

We derive a multiplication law for free non-Hermitian random matrices allowing for an easy reconstruction of the two-dimensional eigenvalue distribution of the product ensemble from the
Pseudo-Hermiticity versus PT symmetry: The necessary condition for the reality of the spectrum of a non-Hermitian Hamiltonian
We introduce the notion of pseudo-Hermiticity and show that every Hamiltonian with a real spectrum is pseudo-Hermitian. We point out that all the PT-symmetric non-Hermitian Hamiltonians studied in
Pseudosymmetric random matrices: Semi-Poisson and sub-Wigner statistics.
It is conjecture that for these ensembles of a large number N of pseudosymmetric n×n (n large) matrices, the nearest level spacing distributions [NLSDs, p(s)] are sub-Wigner as p_{abc}(s)=ase^{-bs^{c}}(0<c<2) and the distributions of their eigenvalues fit well to D(ε).
Level statistics of a pseudo-Hermitian Dicke model.
The level statistics of a pseudo-Hermitian Dicke Hamiltonian that undergoes quantum phase transition (QPT) are studied and it is found that the level-spacing distribution of this Hamiltonian near the integrable limit is close to Poisson distribution, while it is Wigner distribution for the ranges of the parameters for which the Hamiltonian is nonintegrable.
Quasi-Hermitian operators in quantum mechanics and the variational principle
We establish a general criterion for a set of non-Hermitian operators to constitute a consistent quantum mechanical system, which allows for the normal quantum-mechanical interpretation. This
Dynamics of disordered mechanical systems with large connectivity, free probability theory, and quasi-Hermitian random matrices
Abstract Disordered mechanical systems with high connectivity represent a limit opposite to the more familiar case of disordered crystals. Individual ions in a crystal are subjected essentially to
