Level spacings for SL(2,p) by
John Lafferty(
Book
)
3 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
We investigate the eigenvalue spacing distributions for randomly generated 4regular Cayley graphs on SL2(Fp) by numerically calculating their spectra. We present strong evidence that the distributions are Poisson and hence do not follow the Gaussian orthogonal ensemble. Among the Cayley graphs of SL2(Fp) we consider are the new expander graphs recently discovered by Y. Shalom. In addition, we use a Markov chain method to generate random 4regular graphs and observe that the average eigenvalue spacings are closely approximated by the Wigner surmise

"Connections can be physical, as with birdges, or immaterial, as with friendships. Both types of connections can be understood using the same mathematical framework called network theory, or graph theory, which is a way to abstract and quantify the notion of connectivity. This unit looks at how this branch of mathematics provides insights into extremely complicated networks such as ecosystems"Container.
