%N Decimal expansion of constant arising in enumerating 2 X 2 integer matrices having a prescribed integer eigenvalue.

%C Martin and Wong, Corollary 2, p. 2. Abstract: Random matrices arise in many mathematical contexts and it is natural to ask about the properties that such matrices satisfy. If we choose a matrix with integer entries at random, for example, what is the probability that it will have a particular integer as an eigenvalue, or an integer eigenvalue at all? If we choose a matrix with real entries at random, what is the probability that it will have a real eigenvalue in a particular interval? The purpose of this paper is to resolve these questions, once they are made suitably precise, in the setting of 2 X 2 matrices.
