Intuition behind $\zeta(2) = \frac{\pi^2}{6}$
@WłodzimierzHolsztyński: I think this was his reply to an engineer who didn't understand the method of characteristics. Alas, it makes no sense to me either :(

Intuition behind $\zeta(2) = \frac{\pi^2}{6}$
I feel that this proof only uses geometry in name, kind of like the "topological" proof of Euclids theorem of infinitely many primes. It's a neat proof nevertheless.

What is the significance of the median eigenvalue?
Depending on the size of your graph, for large number of vertices you're probably seeing a semicircle distribution of eigenvalues?

Neat problem! Does this arise somewhere specific?

1.4 of your second linked paper, that is.

Thanks for your answer! It's funny I was adding an edit as you just submitted your answer. I was hoping to clarify something. In the section under edit, my matrix $M$ becomes derivatives of $\mathcal{M}$ in my notation above. From briefly perusing the second link, it looks like I might be able to write the determinant of $M$ in a nice way using Schur polynomials? Or it looks like in 1.4, we get an exact product formula with a Vandermonde term?

Thanks for the pointers. I've added an edit where I think I've worked out the structure in terms of Vandermonde's. It's basically going to be in terms of a sum of derivatives of Vandermondes.

Have you tried steepest descent for asymptotics? Also are you interested in asymptotics for large $p$ or $\delta$

Equivalence of ensembles and $\sum_{N=0}^{\infty} \int_{Bn}^{\infty} 1_{\text{{N>K or u>A}}}(u)e^{\beta \lambda_m(\frac{u}{2}+n)}du $
There seem to be two distinct capital $N$'s in your statement, one for the sum, one defining it as $n/\lambda_m$. Also, what is the integral for $\int_{\lambda_m}dx$ actually over?
