Dominik Schröder


After obtaining my PhD under the supervision of László Erdős at the Institute of Science and Technology Austria, I have been a postdoctoral researcher at ETH Zurich. My research interests are probability theory (in particular random matrices), statistical physics, and and statistical learning theory.

Selected research

  1. Phase Transition in the Density of States of Quantum Spin Glasses

    László Erdős, Dominik Schröder

    Math. Phys. Anal. Geom.Vol. 17 (2014) | Issue 3-4

    We demonstrate a transition between Gaussian and semicircular laws using q-Hermite polynomials. This work has inspired large amounts of follow-up research on the SYK model for quantum gravity.

  2. Random matrices with slow correlation decay

    László Erdős, Dominik Schröder

    Forum Math. SigmaVol. 7 (2017)

    We prove universality for a large class of random matrices with correlated entries. This very general result has been used numerous times, also in more applied research.

  3. Central limit theorem for linear eigenvalue statistics of non-Hermitian random matrices

    Giorgio Cipolloni, László Erdős, Dominik Schröder

    Comm. Pure Appl. Math.Vol. 76 (2023)

    We show that the linear statistics of random matrices with IID entries asymptotically are a rank-one perturbation of the Gaussian free field on the unit disc.

  4. Deterministic equivalent and error universality of deep random features learning

    Dominik Schröder, Hugo Cui, Daniil Dmitriev, Bruno Loureiro


    We show that the generalization error of deep random feature models is the same as the generalization error of Gaussian features with matched covariance, and derive an explicit expression for the generalization error.

  5. Asymptotics of Learning with Deep Structured (Random) Features

    Dominik Schröder, Hugo Cui, Daniil Dmitriev, Bruno Loureiro


    We derive an approximative formula for the generalization error of deep neural networks with structured (random) features, confirming a widely believed conjecture. We also show that our results can capture feature maps learned by deep, finite-width neural networks trained under gradient descent.
