We introduce kernel estimators for the semi-circular law. In this first part of our general theory on the estimators, we prove the consistency and conduct simulation study to show the performance of the estimators. We also point out that Wigner's semi-circular law for our new estimators and the classical empirical spectral distributions is still true when the elements of Wigner matrices do not have finite variances but are in the domain of attraction of normal law.

    Excitations in complex media are superpositions of eigenstates that are referred to as 'levels' for quantum systems and 'modes' for classical waves. Although the Hamiltonian of a complex system may not be known or solvable, Wigner conjectured that the statistics of energy level spacings would be...

    We investigate the spectral statistics of a random matrix model for symmetry breaking. It is pointed out that the spectral rigidity distinguishes more clearly the breaking of two- and three-fold symmetries than does the nearest-neighbour spacing distribution.
