As demonstrated in §A.2.2, the first step in writing the Dyson–Schwinger’s equations is to know the propagators of the random matrix in question, namely, eP, or more precisely, its “duplicated” version (A.25), ePD = (cid:18) eP 0 eP† (cid:19) .
Eigenvalues and Singular Values of Products of Rectangular Gaussian Random Matrices (The Extended Version)
In this way, the relevant non–holomorphic Green’s function has been encoded as a part of another ob ject, having linear structure in X, and looking very similar to the usual Green’s function (compare (A.25) with (A.2)), the price to pay for that being “duplication” of the matrices.
Eigenvalues and Singular Values of Products of Rectangular Gaussian Random Matrices (The Extended Version)
Since the matrix–valued and usual Green’s functions have analogous forms, the difference being the duplicated structure in the latter case, planar diagrammatics and the Dyson–Schwinger’s equations will work in a similar way.
