**Abstract:**

*We study mesoscopic fluctuations in a system in which there is a continuous connection between two distinct Fermi liquids, asking whether the mesoscopic variation in the two limits is correlated. The particular system studied is an Anderson impurity coupled to a finite mesoscopic reservoir described by the random matrix theory, a structure which can be realized using quantum dots. We use the slave boson mean-field approach to connect the levels of the uncoupled system to those of the strong-coupling Nozières' Fermi liquid. We find strong but not complete correlation between the mesoscopic properties in the two limits and several universal features. © 2012 Europhysics Letters Association.*
