We then specify it for the case of a Gaussian random field (cf. [Han], [BD], [BSZ2]).
SU(1,1) Random Polynomials
Figure 6 shows the density anti-aliasing filter computed with a spherical Hanning filter for T (k).
Multiscale Gaussian Random Fields for Cosmological Simulations
The minimal k-space and sharp k-space filters are equally easy to compute with or without a Hanning filter.
Multiscale Gaussian Random Fields for Cosmological Simulations
As an alternative, we might use the spherical method of equation (22) with a Hanning filter but with a maximum spatial frequency (i.e. the cutoff for the Hanning filter) larger than the Nyquist frequency π/∆x for grid spacing ∆x.
Multiscale Gaussian Random Fields for Cosmological Simulations
Comparison with Figure 14 shows that removal of the Hanning filter adds no significant errors provided that the minimal method is used for the density and the spherical method is used for the velocity.
Multiscale Gaussian Random Fields for Cosmological Simulations
The anti-aliasing has been performed without a Hanning filter in order to preserve exact sampling of the power spectrum.
Multiscale Gaussian Random Fields for Cosmological Simulations
See the papers by Leboeuf [Leb1, Leb2], Leboeuf and Shukla [LS], Bogomolny, Bohigas, and Leboeuf [BBL2], and Hannay [Han], where the SU(2) and some other random polynomials are introduced and studied, that represent the Ma jorana spin states with complex random coefficients.
Correlations between zeros of a random polynomial
Similar formulae are derived for the correlation functions of complex zeros of random polynomials with complex and real coefficients (see [Han] and [M-A]).
Correlations between zeros of a random polynomial
Moreover, although the pair correlation function for SU(2) polynomials given by [Han] (see [BSZ1] for a generalization) exhibits the same repulsive behavior near 0, its scaling limit occurs on the length scale of 1/√N rather than 1/N .
Equilibrium distribution of zeros of random polynomials
Thus zeros on ∂Ω repel as in the case of SU(2)-polynomials considered in [Han, BSZ1].
Equilibrium distribution of zeros of random polynomials
