Title: Hole probabilities for determinantal point processes in the complex plane
Consider the infinite Ginibre ensemble (the distributional limit of the eigenvalues of nxn random matrices with i.i.d. standard complex Gaussian entries) in the complex plane. For a bounded set $U$, let $H_r(U)$ denote the probability (hole probability) that no points of infinite Ginibre ensemble fall in the region $rU$. We study the asymptotic behavior of $H_r(U)$ as $r \to \infty$. Under certain conditions on $U$ we show that $\log H_r(U)=C_U \cdot r^4 (1+o(1))$ as $r \to \infty$. Using potential theory, we give an explicit formula for $C_U$ in terms of the minimum logarithmic energy of the set with a quadratic external field. We calculate $C_U$ explicitly for some special sets such as the annulus, cardioid, ellipse, equilateral triangle and half disk.
