Local Heuristics and an Exact Formula for Abelian Surfaces Over Finite Fields
Consider a quartic $q$Weil polynomial $f$. Motivated by equidistribution
considerations, we define, for each prime $\ell$, a local factor
that
measures the relative frequency with which $f\bmod \ell$ occurs
as the
characteristic polynomial of a symplectic similitude over $\mathbb{F}_\ell$.
For a certain
class of polynomials, we show that the resulting infinite product
calculates the number of principally polarized abelian surfaces
over $\mathbb{F}_q$
with Weil polynomial $f$.

Universality Under SzegÅ's Condition
This paper presents a
theorem on universality on orthogonal polynomials/random matrices
under a weak local condition on the weight function $w$.
With a new inequality for
polynomials and with the use of fast decreasing polynomials,
it is shown that an approach of
D. S. Lubinsky is applicable. The proof works
at all points which are Lebesguepoints both
for the weight function $w$ and for $\log w$.
