text: The eigenvalue density of many large random matrices is well approximated
by a deterministic measure, the self-consistent density of states. In the present
work, we show this behaviour for several classes of random matrices. In fact,
we establish that, in each of these classes, the self-consistent density of states
approximates the eigenvalue density of the random matrix on all scales slightly
above the typical eigenvalue spacing. For large classes of random matrices, the
self-consistent density of states exhibits several universal features. We prove
that, under suitable assumptions, random Gram matrices and Hermitian random matrices
with decaying correlations have a 1/3-Hölder continuous self-consistent density
of states ρ on R, which is analytic, where it is positive, and has either a square
root edge or a cubic root cusp, where it vanishes. We, thus, extend the validity
of the corresponding result for Wigner-type matrices from [4, 5, 7]. We show that
ρ is determined as the inverse Stieltjes transform of the normalized trace of
the unique solution m(z) to the Dyson equation −m(z) −1 = z − a + S[m(z)] on C
N×N with the constraint Im m(z) ≥ 0. Here, z lies in the complex upper half-plane,
a is a self-adjoint element of C N×N and S is a positivity-preserving operator
on C N×N encoding the first two moments of the random matrix. In order to analyze
a possible limit of ρ for N → ∞ and address some applications in free probability
theory, we also consider the Dyson equation on infinite dimensional von Neumann
algebras. We present two applications to random matrices. We first establish that,
under certain assumptions, large random matrices with independent entries have
a rotationally symmetric self-consistent density of states which is supported
on a centered disk in C. Moreover, it is infinitely often differentiable apart
from a jump on the boundary of this disk. Second, we show edge universality at
all regular (not necessarily extreme) spectral edges for Hermitian random matrices
with decaying correlations.
