Abstract

We study the correlation between the energy spectra of two disordered Hamiltonians of the form Ha = H0a + saφ (a=1,2) with H0a and φ drawn from random distributions. We calculate this correlation function explicitly and show that it has a simple universal form for a broad class of random distributions. In a series of recent papers [BZ1, BZ2, BZ3] (hereafter to be referred to as I, II, and III respectively) we studied the theory of random matrices [WIG,POR,MEH] and discovered a remarkably simple universality in the correlation between energy eigenvalues of random Hamiltonians. A brief review and summary of our work may be found in III. In particular, we find that for a large class of Hamiltonians, the smoothed connected correlation (to be defined below) between the density of energy eigenvalues at energies μ and ν has the universal form ρsmooth c (μ, ν) = −1 2(Nπa)2 1 (x− y)2 { (1− xy) [(1− x2)(1− y2)]1/2 }
