On Connected Diagrams and Cumulants of Erdos-Renyi Matrix Models
Thus one first simplifies the classical constraint and then quantizes, using rules motivated by LQC.11 By contrast, in this paper started with the lapse function suited to harmonic rather than proper time but then followed the same procedure as in to obtain the improved quantum constraint.
Robustness of key features of loop quantum cosmology
In proving Lemma 10, we shall make use of the following result on the joint moments of entries of a unitary matrix from the book of Nica and Speicher, page 381 (we state a weaker form suited to our purpose).
From random matrices to random analytic functions
The reason for considering continuous time is the following: we are going to use spectral gap estimates, and these are better suited for continuous time in this context (mainly due to the fact that the discrete-time random walk is periodic).
On slowdown and speedup of transient random walks in random environment
Processing of the spectra was completed following normal echelle reduction practices with standard IRAF packages, with careful adaptations to suit the bHROS data.
