    • Asymptotic dynamics of nonlinear Schrödinger equations: Resonance-dominated and dispersion-dominated solutions 

      Tsai, Tai-Peng; Yau, Horng-Tzer (Wiley-Blackwell, 2001)
      We consider a linear Schrödinger equation with a nonlinear perturbation in ℝ3. Assume that the linear Hamiltonian has exactly two bound states and its eigen-values satisfy some resonance condition. We prove that if the ...
    • Bulk diffusivity of lattice gases close to criticality 

      Spohn, Herbert; Yau, Horng-Tzer (Springer Nature, 1995)
      We consider lattice gases where particles jump at random times constrained by hard-core exclusion (simple exclusion process with speed change). The conventional theory of critical slowing down predicts that close to a ...

      Lee, Ji Oon; Schnelli, Kevin; Stetler, Benjamin; Yau, Horng-Tzer (Institute of Mathematical Statistics, 2016)
      We consider N×N random matrices of the form H=W+V where W is a real symmetric or complex Hermitian Wigner matrix and V is a random or deterministic, real, diagonal matrix whose entries are independent of W. We assume ...

      Consider \(N × N\) Hermitian or symmetric random matrices H where the distribution of the (i, j) matrix element is given by a probability measure \(\nu_{ij}\) with a subexponential decay. Let \(\sigma_{ij}^2\) be the ...

      Erdos, Laszlo; Péché, Sandrine; Ramírez, José A.; Schlein, Benjamin; Yau, Horng-Tzer (Wiley-Blackwell, 2010)
      We consider N × N Hermitian Wigner random matrices H where the probability density for each matrix element is given by the density ν(x) = e−U(x). We prove that the eigenvalue statistics in the bulk are given by the Dyson ...
    • Bulk universality of sparse random matrices 

      Huang, Jiaoyang; Landon, Benjamin; Yau, Horng-Tzer (AIP Publishing, 2015)
      We consider the adjacency matrix of the ensemble of Erdős-Rényi random graphs which consists of graphs on N vertices in which each edge occurs independently with probability p. We prove that in the regime pN ≫ 1, these ...
    • Convergence to equilibrium of conservative particle systems on ℤ\bmd 

      Landim, C.; Yau, Horng-Tzer (Institute of Mathematical Statistics, 2003)
      We consider the Ginzburg--Landau process on the lattice ℤdZd whose potential is a bounded perturbation of the Gaussian potential. We prove that the decay rate to equilibrium in the variance sense is t−d/2t−d/2 up to ...

      Erdos, Laszlo; Schlein, Benjamin; Yau, Horng-Tzer (Springer Nature, 2006)
      We prove rigorously that the one-particle density matrix of three dimensional interacting Bose systems with a short-scale repulsive pair interaction converges to the solution of the cubic non-linear Schrödinger equation ...

      Consider a system of N bosons in three dimensions interacting via a repulsive short range pair potential N²V (N(xi − xj)), where x = (x1,..., xN) denotes the positions of the particles. Let HN denote the Hamiltonian of the ...
    • Diffusive limit of lattice gas with mixing conditions 

      Varadhan, S. R. S.; Yau, Horng-Tzer (International Press of Boston, 1997)
      We prove, under certain mixing conditions, that the hydrodynamical limit of a stochastic lattice gas on the cubic lattice Z d is governed by a nonlinear diffusion equation. Following [VI], we characterize the diffusion ...
    • Isotropic local laws for sample covariance and generalized Wigner matrices 

      Alex, Bloemendal; Erdos, Laszlo; Knowles, Antti; Yau, Horng-Tzer; Yin, Jun (Institute of Mathematical Statistics, 2014)
      We consider sample covariance matrices of the form X ∗X, where X is an M × N matrix with independent random entries. We prove the isotropic local MarchenkoPastur law, i.e. we prove that the resolvent (X ∗X − z) −1 converges ...
    • Linear Boltzmann equation as the weak coupling limit of a random Schrödinger equation 

      Erdos, Laszlo; Yau, Horng-Tzer (Wiley-Blackwell, 2000)
      We study the time evolution of a quantum particle in a Gaussian random environment. We show that in the weak coupling limit the Wigner distribution of the wave function converges to a solution of a linear Boltzmann equation ...
    • Local circular law for random matrices 

      Bourgade, Paul; Yau, Horng-Tzer; Yin, Jun (Springer Nature, 2013)
      The circular law asserts that the spectral measure of eigenvalues of rescaled random matrices without symmetry assumption converges to the uniform measure on the unit disk. We prove a local version of this law at any point ...

      Bourgade, Paul; Yau, Horng-Tzer; Yin, Jun (Springer Nature, 2013)
      In the first part of this article (Bourgade et al. arXiv:1206.1449, 2012), we proved a local version of the circular law up to the finest scale N−1/2+εN−1/2+ε for non-Hermitian random matrices at any point z∈ℂz∈C with ...
