  • We study expectations of powers and correlation functions for characteristic polynomials of N×N non-Hermitian random matrices. For the 1-point and 2-point correlation function, we obtain several characterizations in terms of Painlevé transcendents, both at finite N and asymptotically as N→∞. In the asymptotic analysis, two regimes of interest are distinguished: boundary asymptotics where parameters of the correlation function can touch the boundary of the limiting eigenvalue support and bulk asymptotics where they are strictly inside the support...
