A carillon of light,
Then dwindleth to a faint surmise,
Still singing out of sight.

In science:

The figure shows that distributions (16) evolve the shape predicted by the corresponding Wigner surmise towards the Poisson distribution, but never reach it.
Non-extensive Random Matrix Theory - A Bridge Connecting Chaotic and Regular Dynamics
In order to find a Wigner-type surmise for the nearest-neighbour distributions we consider the limiting behaviour P (λ) when two nearby eigenvalues λ1 and λ2 get close to each other.
Integrable random matrix ensembles
For rational and hyperbolic Calogero-Moser models Wigner-type surmises are proposed.
Integrable random matrix ensembles
Simbel, Wigner surmise for high-order level spacing distributions of chaotic systems, Phys.
Integrable random matrix ensembles
We see that as the density goes from the semi-circle to the Gaussian-like shape, concomitantly the spacing moves from the Wigner surmise to the Poisson distribution 1 − exp(−s).
Hyperbolic disordered ensembles of random matrices
Left: density of states, right: spacing statistics, the continuous line is the Wigner surmise for GOE matrices.
Quench Dynamics in Randomly Generated Extended Quantum Models
Starting with a value of q = 1, where the nearest-neighbor spacing (NNS) distribution is well approximated by the Wigner surmise (see below), and decreasing q the distribution becomes narrower, and more sharply peaked at spacing s = 1.
Random matrix theory for mixed regular-chaotic dynamics in the super-extensive regime
This simple argument, essentially due to Wigner5 and to Landau and Smorodinsky,6 is known as the Wigner surmise.
Lattices of matrices (revised)
The nearest neighbor spacing distribution is well approximated by the Wigner surmise given by P (S ) ∼ S β exp(−aβ S 2 ), where aβ is a constant.

Pure eigenstates for the sum of generators of the free group
One may surmise that the special place of domino tableaux has some relation with classical groups of types other than An, rather than just with plethysms; such a connection certainly does exist (see [Garf ], where even moving chains play a rˆole), but at present we cannot indicate any concrete links.
