For the last two years, I am interested in the following three topics,
1. SYK model:
With Gang Tian and Dongyi Wei, we have three papers on the global distribution of eigenvalues of SYK model such as the global density of eigenvalues, the central limit theorem and the concentration of measure theorem. The SYK model a random matrix model which is a simple model of the black hole and it's very topical in physics recently, and it's also a quantum spin glass model. There are still many interesting open problems in this new emerging area, such as the behaviors of partition function (recall the Parisi formula in the spin glass) and the largest eigenvalue.
2. Random matrices:
a. We study the smallest gaps for the circular beta-ensemble and GOE, and largest gaps for CUE and GUE, in all cases, we proved that the extreme gaps are asymptotic to the Poisson distribution after rescaling, as a consequence, we derived the rescaling limits of extreme gaps.
b. We derive the Berry-Esseen theorem for the number counting function of circular beta-ensemble, which implies the central limit theorem of number of points in arcs. We also derived the uniform bound for the variance.
3. Random waves:
With R. Adler, we get an explicit formula for the supremum of random spherical harmonics by Weyl's tube formula, where we proved that unexpectedly the critical radius of the embedding/immersion of the sphere to higher dimensional sphere by the spherical harmonics has an explicit limit given by the Bessel function, although the image become more and more twisted. The result is universal, i.e., true for more general Riemannian manifolds with assumptions.
