Correlations of Characteristic Polynomials of Wigner Matrices

Regular Seminar Holger Koesters (Bielefeld)

16:00 Brunel U.
room M128

The characteristic polynomials of random matrices from various random matrix ensembles have been investigated over the last few years. In this talk I will present some results on the correlations of the characteristic polynomials of general Wigner matrices. It turns out that the well-known results for Gaussian Wigner matrices essentially continue to hold in this setting. This talk is partly based on joint work with Friedrich Goetze.
