Description
Abstract [en]

In a previous paper we studied the double scaling limit of unitary random matrix ensembles of the form Z(n,N)(-1) vertical bar det M vertical bar(2 alpha)e(-NTrV(M)) dM with alpha > -1/2. The factor vertical bar det M vertical bar(2 alpha) induces critical eigenvalue behaviour near the origin. Under the assumption that the limiting mean eigenvalue density associated with V is regular, and that the origin is a right endpoint of its support, we computed the limiting eigenvalue correlation kernel in the double scaling limit as n, N -> infinity such that n(2/3)(n/N - 1) = O(1) by using the Deift-Zhou steepest descent method for the Riemann-Hilbert problem for polynomials on the line orthogonal with respect to the weight vertical bar x vertical bar(2 alpha)e(-NV(x)). Our main attention was on the construction of a local parametrix near the origin by means of the psi-functions associated with a distinguished solution u(alpha) of the Painleve XXXIV equation. This solution is related to a particular solution of the Painleve II equation, which, however, is different from the usual Hastings-McLeod solution. In this paper we compute the asymptotic behaviour of u(alpha)(s) as s -> +/-infinity. We conjecture that this asymptotics characterizes u(alpha) and we present supporting arguments based on the asymptotic analysis of a one-parameter family of solutions of the Painleve XXXIV equation which includes u(alpha). We identify this family as the family of tronquee solutions of the thirty fourth Painleve equation.
