# Eigenvalue Distribution of Large Random Matrices

Share this page
*Leonid Pastur; Mariya Shcherbina*

Random matrix theory is a wide and growing
field with a variety of concepts, results, and techniques and a vast
range of applications in mathematics and the related sciences. The
book, written by well-known experts, offers beginners a fairly
balanced collection of basic facts and methods (Part 1 on classical
ensembles) and presents experts with an exposition of recent advances
in the subject (Parts 2 and 3 on invariant ensembles and ensembles
with independent entries).

The text includes many of the authors' results and methods on
several main aspects of the theory, thus allowing them to present a
unique and personal perspective on the subject and to cover many
topics using a unified approach essentially based on the Stieltjes
transform and orthogonal polynomials. The exposition is supplemented
by numerous comments, remarks, and problems. This results in a book
that presents a detailed and self-contained treatment of the basic
random matrix ensembles and asymptotic regimes.

This book will be an important reference for researchers in a
variety of areas of mathematics and mathematical physics. Various
chapters of the book can be used for graduate courses; the main
prerequisite is a basic knowledge of calculus, linear algebra, and
probability theory.

#### Reviews

While a wide variety of ensembles are studied in this text, the methods are coherently focused, relying heavily in particular on Stieltjes transform based tools. This gives a slightly different perspective on the subject from other recent texts which often focus on other methods.
