The Rosenzweig-Porter model has seen a resurgence in interest as it exhibits a nonergodic extended phase between the ergodic extended metallic phase and the localized phase. Such a phase is relevant to many physical models from the Sachdev-Ye-Kitaev model in high-energy physics and quantum gravity to the interacting many-body localization in condensed-matter physics and quantum computing. This phase is characterized by fractal behavior of the wave functions and a postulated correlated miniband structure of the energy spectrum. Here we will seek evidence for the latter in the spectrum. Since this behavior is expected on intermediate energy scales, spectral rigidity or number variance is a natural way to tease it out. Nevertheless, due to the Thouless energy and ambiguities in the unfolding procedure, the results are inconclusive. On the other hand, by using the singular-value decomposition method, clear evidence for a super-Poissonian behavior in this regime emerges, consistent with a picture of correlated minibands.
