Yizhe Zhu


I am a 4th-year graduate student in the Department of Mathematics at  University of Washington. My advisor is Ioana Dumitriu. Before that I got my bachelor degree in Mathematics and Applied Mathematics from Shanghai Jiao Tong University.

I am interested in probability theory and combinatorics. I am working on:

·       Random matrices

·       Graph limits

·       Random graphs and hypergraphs


1. A graphon approach to limiting spectral distributions of Wigner-type matrices [poster, slides]

2. Sparse general Wigner-type matrices: local law and eigenvector delocalization, with Ioana Dumitriu. Journal of Mathematical Physics 60(2), 023301, 2019. 

3. Exact recovery in the hypergraph stochastic block model: a spectral algorithm, with Sam Cole

4. Community detection in the sparse hypergraph stochastic block model, with Soumik Pal  [poster]

5. Spectra of random regular hypergraphs, with Ioana Dumitriu
