We study the gap probabilities in the critical unitary invariant random matrix ensembles, where the Painleve II and Painleve XXXIV kernels arise. By studying the Fredholm determinants of the Painleve II and Painlev XXXIV kernels, we obtain integral expression of the gap probabilities by using solutions to the coupled Painleve II system. Moreover, the large gap asymptotics are derived with the constant terms given explicitly in terms of the Riemann zeta-function. This talk is based on a joint work with Dan Dai from City University of HongKong.
