Abstract:
In recent work with A. Guionnet and M. Krishnapur, we showed how
one can prove the Feinberg-Zee single ring theorem''
concerning the convergence of the empirical measure of eigenvalues for certain random (non-normal) matrices, to a measure supported on a single ring. In this talk, I will describe a strengthening of this result, in which we prove (under additional assumptions) the convergence of the support of the empirical measure to the support of the limit (that is,
ruling our the possibility of stray'' random variables).
