The spectral density for random matrix [Formula: see text] ensembles can be written in terms of the average of the absolute value of the characteristic polynomial raised to the power of [Formula: see text], which for even [Formula: see text] is a polynomial of degree [Formula: see text]. In the cases of the classical Gaussian, Laguerre, and Jacobi weights, we show that this polynomial, and moreover, the spectral density itself, can be characterized as the solution of a linear differential equation of degree [Formula: see text]. This equation, and its companion for the resolvent, are given explicitly for [Formula: see text] and [Formula: see text] for all three classical cases, and also for [..
