# The Circular Law for random regular digraphs

@article{Cook2019TheCL, title={The Circular Law for random regular digraphs}, author={Nicholas A. Cook}, journal={Annales de l'Institut Henri Poincar{\'e}, Probabilit{\'e}s et Statistiques}, year={2019} }

Let $\log^Cn\le d\le n/2$ for a sufficiently large constant $C>0$ and let $A_n$ denote the adjacency matrix of a uniform random $d$-regular directed graph on $n$ vertices. We prove that as $n$ tends to infinity, the empirical spectral distribution of $A_n$, suitably rescaled, is governed by the Circular Law. A key step is to obtain quantitative lower tail bounds for the smallest singular value of additive perturbations of $A_n$.
