$XX^T$ Matrices With Independent Entries

  title={\$XX^T\$ Matrices With Independent Entries},
  author={Arup Bose and Priyanka Sen},
Let S = XX T be the (unscaled) sample covariance matrix where X is a real p × n matrix with independent entries. It is well known that if the entries of X are independent and identically distributed (i.i.d.) with enough moments and p / n → y (cid:44) 0, then the limiting spectral distribution (LSD) of 1 n S converges to a Marˇcenko-Pastur law. Several extensions of this result are also known. We prove a general result on the existence of the LSD of S in probability or almost surely, and in…

We consider n x n real symmetric and Hermitian Wigner random matrices n ―1/2 W with independent (modulo symmetry condition) entries and the (null) sample covariance matrices n ―1 X*X with independent
Some patterned matrices with independent entries
Several existing and new results for patterned matrices, their band and sparse versions, as well as for matrices with continuous and discrete variance profile follow as special cases.
Random matrices with independent entries: Beyond non-crossing partitions
The scaled standard Wigner matrix (symmetric with mean zero, variance one i.i.d. entries), and its limiting eigenvalue distribution, namely the semi-circular distribution, have attracted much
Another look at the moment method for large dimensional random matrices
The methods to establish the limiting spectral distribution (LSD) of large dimensional random matrices includes the  well known moment method which invokes the trace formula. Its success has been
Patterned sparse random matrices: A moment approach
We consider four specific n × n sparse patterned random matrices, namely the Symmetric Circulant, Reverse Circulant, Toeplitz and the Hankel matrices. The entries are assumed to be Bernoulli with

This paper proves almost-sure convergence of the empirical measure of the normalized singular values of increasing rectangular submatrices of an infinite random matrix of independent elements. The
A result on the limiting spectral distribution of random matrices with unequal variance entries
A classical result in random matrix theory reveals that the limiting spectral distribution of a Wigner matrix whose entries have a common variance and satisfy other regular assumptions almost surely
Limiting spectral distributions of some band matrices
We use the method of moments to establish the limiting spectral distribution (LSD) of appropriately scaled large dimensional random symmetric circulant, reverse circulant, Toeplitz and Hankel
General tridiagonal random matrix models, limiting distributions and fluctuations
In this paper we discuss general tridiagonal matrix models which are natural extensions of the ones given in Dumitriu and Edelman (J. Math. Phys. 43(11): 5830–5847, 2002; J. Math. Phys.
A Generalization of Wigner’s Law
AbstractWe present a generalization of Wigner’s semicircle law: we consider a sequence of probability distributions $$(p_1,p_2,\dots)$$, with mean value zero and take an N × N real symmetric matrix
