Eugene Bogomolny. Level compressibility of certain random unitary matrices. Entropy, 2022, 24 (6), pp.795. ⟨10.3390/e24060795⟩. ⟨hal-03601297⟩
The value of spectral form factor at the origin, called level compressibility, is an important characteristic of random spectra. The paper is devoted to analytical calculations of this quantity for different random unitary matrices describing models with intermediate spectral statistics. The computations are based on the approach developed by G. Tanner in [J. Phys. A: Math. Gen. 34, 8485 (2001)] for chaotic systems. The main ingredient of the method is the determination of eigenvalues of a transition matrix whose matrix elements equal squared moduli of matrix elements of the initial unitary matrix. The principal result of the paper is the proof that the level compressibility of random unitary matrices derived from the exact quantisation of barrier billiards and consequently of barrier billiards themselves is equal to $1/2$ irrespectively of the height and the position of the barrier.
