Spectral properties of large Wigner random matrices with non-symmetrically distributed entriesMathematical Physics & Probability
|Speaker: ||Alexander Soshnikov, UC Davis|

The talk will be based on our recent joint work with Sandrine Peche in which we studied the spectral norm of the Wigner matrices with centered but non-symmetrically distributed entries. Our results improve the earlier bounds on the spectral norm due to Komlos and Furedi (1981) and Van Vu (2005).
