This paper studies beta ensembles on the real line in a high temperature regime, that is, the regime where βN→ const∈ (0 , ∞) , with N the system size and β the inverse temperature. For the global behavior, the convergence to the equilibrium measure is a consequence of a recent result on large deviation principle. This paper focuses on the local behavior and shows that the local statistics around any fixed reference energy converges weakly to a homogeneous Poisson point process.
