@article{Silverstein1995AnalysisOT, title={Analysis of the limiting spectral distribution of large dimensional random matrices}, author={Jack W. Silverstein and Sang Il Choi}, journal={Journal of Multivariate Analysis}, year={1995}, volume={54}, pages={295-309} }

Results on the analytic behavior of the limiting spectral distribution of matrices of sample covariance type, studied in Marcenko and Pastur [2] and Yin [8], are derived. Through an equation defining its Stieltjes transform, it is shown that the limiting distribution has a continuous derivative away from zero, the derivative being analytic wherever it is positive, and resembles [formula] for most cases of x0 in the boundary of its support. A complete analysis of a way to determine its support…

The theoretical analysis presented focuses on the splitting of the spectrum of sample covariance matrix into noise and signal eigenvalues and it is shown that when the number of sensors is large thenumber of signals can be estimated with a sample size considerably less than that required by previous approaches.
