We distinguish a class of random point processes which we call
Giambelli compatible point processes. Our definition was partly
inspired by determinantal identities for averages of products and
ratios of characteristic polynomials for random matrices.
It is closely related to the
classical Giambelli formula for Schur symmetric functions.
We show that orthogonal polynomial ensembles, z-measures on
partitions, and spectral measures of characters of generalized
regular representations of the infinite symmetric group generate
Giambelli compatible point processes. In particular, we prove
determinantal identities for averages of analogs of characteristic
polynomials for partitions.
Our approach provides a direct derivation of determinantal
formulas for correlation functions.
