**Euclidean Random Matrices and Their Applications in Physics**

by A. Goetschy, S.E. Skipetrov

**Publisher**: arXiv 2013**Number of pages**: 50

**Description**:

We review the state of the art of the theory of Euclidean random matrices, focusing on the density of their eigenvalues. Both Hermitian and non-Hermitian matrices are considered and links with simpler, standard random matrix ensembles are established. We discuss applications of Euclidean random matrices to contemporary problems in condensed matter physics, optics, and quantum chaos.
