Linear statistics of eigenvalues in many familiar classes of random matrices are known to obey gaussian central limit theorems. The proofs of such results are usually rather difficult, involving hard computations specific to the model in question. In this article we attempt to formulate a unified technique for deriving such results via relatively soft arguments. In the process, we introduce a notion of ‘second order Poincaré inequalities’: just as ordinary Poincaré inequalities give variance bounds, second order Poincaré inequalities give central limit theorems. The proof of the main result employs Stein’s method of normal approximation. A number of examples are worked out; some of them are new. One of the new results is a CLT for the spectrum of gaussian Toeplitz matrices.

Abstract. We show that quaternionic Gaussian random variables satisfy a generalization of the Wick formula for computing the expected value of products in terms of a family of graphical enumeration problems. When applied to the quaternionic Wigner and Wishart families of random matrices the result gives the duality between moments of these families and the corresponding real Wigner and Wishart families. 1.

Abstract. This paper proposes that the study of Sturm sequences is invaluable in the numerical computation and theoretical derivation of eigenvalue distributions of random matrix ensembles. We first explore the use of Sturm sequences to efficiently compute histograms of eigenvalues for symmetric tridiagonal matrices and apply these ideas to random matrix ensembles such as the βHermite ensemble. Using our techniques, we reduce the time to compute a histogram of the eigenvalues of such a matrix from O(n 2 + m) to O(mn) time where n is the dimension of the matrix and m is the number of bins (with arbitrary bin centers and widths) desired in the histogram (m is usually much smaller than n). Second, we derive analytic formulas in terms of iterated multivariate integrals for the eigenvalue distribution and the largest eigenvalue distribution for arbitrary symmetric tridiagonal random matrix models. As an example of the utility of this approach, we give a derivation of both distributions for the βHermite random matrix ensemble (for general β). Third, we explore the relationship between the Sturm sequence of a random matrix and its shooting eigenvectors. We show using Sturm sequences that, assuming the eigenvector contains no zeros, the number of sign changes in a shooting eigenvector of parameter λ is equal to the number of eigenvalues greater than λ. Finally, we use the techniques presented in the first section to experimentally demonstrate a O(log n) growth relationship between the variance of histogram bin values and the order of the βHermite matrix ensemble. This paper is dedicated to the fond memory of James T. Albrecht 1.

Nflation is a promising embedding of inflation in string theory in which many string axions combine to drive inflation [1]. We characterize the dynamics of a general Nflation model with nondegenerate axion masses. Although the precise mass of a single axion depends on compactification details in a complicated way, the distribution of masses can be computed with very limited knowledge of microscopics: the shape of the mass distribution is an emergent property. We use random matrix theory to show that a typical Nflation model has a spectrum of masses distributed according to the MarčenkoPastur law. This distribution depends on a single parameter, the number of axions divided by the dimension of the moduli space. We use this result to describe the inflationary dynamics and phenomenology of a general Nflation model. We produce an ensemble of models and use numerical integration to track the axions ’ evolution and the resulting scalar power spectrum. For realistic initial conditions, the power spectrum is considerably more red than in singlefield m2φ2 inflation. We conclude that random matrix models of Nflation are surprisingly tractable and have a rich phenomenology that differs in testable ways from

Abstract. In this paper we give an analytic interpretation of free convolution of type B, and provide a new formula for its computation. This formula allows us to show that free additive convolution of type B is essentially a recasting of conditionally free convolution. We put in evidence several aspects of this operation, the most significant being its apparition as an “intertwiner ” between derivation and free convolution of type A. We also show connections between several limit theorems in type A and type B free probability. Moreover, we show that the analytical picture fits very well with the idea of considering type B random variables as infinitesimal deformations to ordinary noncommutative random variables. Free probability theory was introduced by D. Voiculescu in the eighties (see e.g. [23]). Already in his early work [22] Voiculescu has found analytical ways for computation of a number of natural operations in his theory, such as free convolution. Later on, Speicher [21] found that the combinatorics of free probability theory has to do with (“type A”) noncrossing partitions. For example, he found a description of the relation between moments and cumulants in terms of the lattice NC (A)(n) of noncrossing partitions of {1, 2,..., n}; free independence could then be phrased in terms of vanishing of mixed cumulants. We refer the reader to [16] for a detailed description.

For a βJacobi ensemble determined by parameters a1,a2 and n, under the restriction that the three parameters go to infinity with n and a1 being of small orders of a2, we obtain some limit theorems about the eigenvalues. In particular, we derive the asymptotic distributions for the largest and the smallest eigenvalues, the central limit theorems of the eigenvalues, and the limiting distributions of the empirical distributions of the eigenvalues.
