Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


We consider a generalisation of the Ewens measure for the symmetric group, calculating moments of the characteristic polynomial and similar multiplicative statistics. In addition we study the asymptotic behaviour of linear statistics (such as the trace of a permutation matrix or of a wreath product) under this new measure.
