Periodic and Ergodic Spectral Problems

Co-author: Uzy Smilansky (Weizmann Institute of Science)

We investigate the eigenvalue statistics of random Bernoulli matrices, where the matrix elements are chosen independently from a binary set with equal probability. This is achieved by initiating a discrete random walk process over the space of matrices and analysing the induced random motion of the eigenvalues – an approach which is similar to Dyson’s Brownian motion model but with important modifications. In particular, we show our process is described by a Fokker-Planck equation, up to an error margin which vanishes in the limit of large matrix dimension. The stationary solution of which corresponds to the joint probability density function of certain well-known fixed trace Gaussian ensembles.
