Research output: Contribution to journalConference articlepeer-review


We consider the characteristic polynomial associated with the smoothed two point function in two dimensional large N principal chiral model. We numerically show that it undergoes a transition at a critical distance of the order of the correlation length. The transition is in the same universality class as two dimensional large N QCD.
