We compute the joint eigenvalue density of rank one non-Hermitian perturbations of Gaussian and Laguerre beta-ensembles, as well as of rank one non-unitary perturbations of unitary circular beta-ensembles. These eigenvalues have interpretation as scattering resonances of open quantum systems in the physics literature. The tools we use are the theory of orthogonal polynomials together with the matrix models of Dumitriu-Edelman and Killip-Nenciu. This is a joint work with Rowan Killip (UCLA).
