In both cases, the theories are successful to the extent that relevant facts are known.
Physics with exotic probability theory
In this section we would like to explain in a bit more detail to what extent our Penrose limit is different from the one considered by BMN in Ref. . A priori the fact that different Penrose limits seem to exist may appear strange.
Gauge theory description of compactified pp-waves
If the random matrices in the chosen ensemble have the same global symmetry properties as the actual Hamiltonian, this statistical theory describes also the eigenvalues of the Hamiltonian, to the extent that they depend only on symmetry, i.e. they are universal.
Random matrix theory and symmetric spaces
The asymptotic behavior for large κ may be expected to be universal, that is, to some extent independent of the details of the dynamics of the catalysts.
