@article{3115cae3f23c4445bfbf18f9adb40236, title = "Local law and complete eigenvector delocalization for supercritical Erd{\H o}s-R{\'e}nyi graphs", abstract = "We prove a local law for the adjacency matrix of the Erd{\H o}s–R{\'e}nyi graph G(N, p) in the supercritical regime pN ≥ C log N where G(N, p) has with high probability no isolated vertices. In the same regime, we also prove the complete delocalization of the eigenvectors. Both results are false in the complementary subcritical regime. Our result improves the corresponding results from (Ann. Probab. 41 (2013) 2279-2375) by extending them all the way down to the critical scale pN = O(log N). A key ingredient of our proof is a new family of multilinear large deviation estimates for sparse random vectors, which carefully balance mixed l2 and l∞ norms of the coefficients with combinatorial factors, allowing us to prove strong enough concentration down to the critical scale pN = O(log N). These estimates are of independent interest and we expect them to be more generally useful in the analysis of very sparse random matrices.", keywords = "Eigenvector delocalization, Erd{\H o}s–R{\'e}nyi graph, Local law, Sparse random matrix", author = "Yukun HE and Antti KNOWLES and Matteo MARCOZZI", year = "2019", month = sep, doi = "10.1214/19-AOP1339", language = "English", volume = "47", pages = "3278--3302", journal = "Annals of Probability", issn = "0091-1798", publisher = "Institute of Mathematical Statistics", number = "5", }
