Abstract and Keywords

This article describes a direct approach for computing scalar and matrix kernels, respectively for the unitary ensembles on the one hand and the orthogonal and symplectic ensembles on the other hand, leading to correlation functions and gap probabilities. In the classical orthogonal polynomials (Hermite, Laguerre, and Jacobi), the matrix kernels for the orthogonal and symplectic ensemble are expressed in terms of the scalar kernel for the unitary case, using the relation between the classical orthogonal polynomials going with the unitary ensembles and the skew-orthogonal polynomials going with the orthogonal and symplectic ensembles. The article states the fundamental theorem relating the orthonormal and skew-orthonormal polynomials that enter into the Christoffel-Darboux kernels

Keywords: scalar kernel, matrix kernel, unitary ensemble, orthogonal ensemble, symplectic ensemble, orthogonal polynomial, skew-orthogonal polynomial, Christoffel-Darboux kernel
