Bohemian Eigenvalues

Welcome to the homepage of the Bohemian eigenvalue research project. Our website is still cooking but in the mean time you should check out our awesome gallery of Bohemian eigenvalue plots!

What are Bohemian Eigenvalues?

Bohemian eigenvalues are the eigenvalues of a family of Bohemian matrices.

What is a Family of Bohemian Matrices?

A family of Bohemian matrices is a distribution of random matrices where the matrix entries are sampled from a discrete set of bounded height. The discrete set must not be dependent on the dimension of the matrices.

Why “Bohemian”?

When this project was in its early stages, our focus was on random integer matrices of bounded height. We originally used the phrase “bounded height integer matrix eigenvalues” to refer to our work. This led to the acronym BHIME which isn’t to far off from “Bohemian”.
