Following the work of Conrey, Rubinstein, and Snaith [Commun. Math. Phys. 267, 611 (2006)] and Forrester and Witte [J. Phys. A: Math. Gen. 39, 8983 (2006)], we examine a mixed moment of the characteristic polynomial and its derivative for matrices from the unitary group U(N) (also known as the CUE) and relate the moment to the solution of a Painlevé differential equation. We also calculate a simple form for the asymptotic behavior of moments of logarithmic derivatives of these characteristic polynomials evaluated near the unit circle.
