Antti Knowles receives an ERC Starting Grant

Antti Knowles has received an ERC Starting Grant titiled "Spectral Statistics of Structured Random Matrices".

The goal of this ​project is to study the eigenvalue distribution of random matrix models arising from two areas: spectral graph theory and the physics of disordered quantum systems. Both types of model contain some nontrivial structure, which makes them at the same time more interesting but also more challenging to analyse than the Wigner-type mean-field matrices that have up to now been the main focus of random matrix theory.
