If p is large then the adjacency matrix A of G behaves like a Wigner random matrix and has the semicircle law on [-2,2] as limiting eigenvalue density. Moreover, the extreme eigenvalues converge to -2 and 2, respectively.
If p is small then, however, A has many eigenvalues outside [-2,2].
Recently, the critical value of p for this transition has been determined and a precise connection between the large degrees of G and the extreme eigenvalues of A has been established.
This is joint work with Raphael Ducatez and Antti Knowles.
