• We study random Morse functions on a Riemann manifold $(M^m,g)$ defined as a random Gaussian weighted superpositions of eigenfunctions of the Laplacian of the metric $g$. The randomness is determined by a fixed Schwartz function $w$ and a small parameter $\varepsilon>0$. We first prove that as $\varepsilon\to 0$ the expected distribution of critical values of this random function approaches a universal measure on $\mathbb{R}$, independent of $g$, that can be explicitly described in terms the… CONTINUE READING
