Abstract

There is a two-component log-gas system with Boltzmann factor which provides an interpolation between the eigenvalue probability density function (PDF) for β=1 and β=4 invariant random matrix ensembles. Its solvability relies on the construction of particular skew orthogonal polynomials, with the skew inner product a linear combination of the β=1 and β=4 inner products, each involving weight functions. For suitably related classical weight functions, we seek to express the skew orthogonal polynomials as linear combinations of the underlying orthogonal polynomials. It is found that in each case (Gaussian, Laguerre, Jacobi and generalised Cauchy) the coefficients can be expressed in terms of h..
