We consider the AC transport in a quantum RC circuit made of a coherent chaotic cavity with a top gate. Within a random matrix approach, we study the joint distribution for the mesoscopic capacitance and the charge relaxation resistance Rq, where C is the geometric capacitance and Cq the quantum capacitance. We study the limit of a large number of conducting channels N with a Coulomb gas method. We obtain and show that the relative fluctuations are of order 1/N both for Cq and Rq, with strong correlations . The detailed analysis of large deviations involves a second-order phase transition in the Coulomb gas. The two-dimensional phase diagram is obtained.
