Title: Spectra of random graphs: a random matrix perspective
We shall be surveying some results on spectrum of random graphs. In particular, we shall consider random matrices on fixed vertices and shall look at the eigenvalues of the adjacency and the Laplacian matrices. The talk will mainly concentrate on the case when the occurrence of edges are independent. We see the results through the random matrix point of view and compare them with the classical results of random matrix. Although the literature is huge, we try to give a brief survey on the known results and also discuss some of the open problems in the area.
About the LCN2 seminar
This talk is part of a series of seminars organized within an ongoing scientific initiative called the "Leiden Complex Networks Network" (LCN2), which brings together scientists with a common interest in both theoretical models and empirical analyses of complex networks and random graphs. The LCN2 community shares the approach of using networks for describing real-world complex systems and aims at developing related analytical and numerical methods, while also being open to other research approaches for studying complex systems. The talks are designed for a broad audience, allowing for constructive exchanges of ideas between scientists from different disciplines. During and after the talk, some drinks and simple snacks are provided.
