Let $T$ be a self-adjoint operator on a finite dimensional Hilbert space. It is shown that the distribution of the eigenvalues of a compression of $T$ to a subspace of a given dimension is almost the same for almost all subspaces. This is a coordinate-free analogue of a recent result of Chatterjee and Ledoux on principal submatrices. The proof is based on measure concentration and entropy techniques, and the result improves on some aspects of the result of Chatterjee and Ledoux. 
A method to derive concentration of measure bounds on Markov chains
We explore a method introduced by Chatterjee and Ledoux in a paper on eigenvalues of principle submatrices. The method provides a tool to prove concentration of measure in cases where there is a
Concentration and convergence rates for spectral measures of random matrices
The topic of this paper is the typical behavior of the spectral measures of large random matrices drawn from several ensembles of interest, including in particular matrices drawn from Haar measure on
Rates of convergence for empirical spectral measures: a soft approach
Understanding the limiting behavior of eigenvalues of random matrices is the central problem of random matrix theory. Classical limit results are known for many models, and there has been significant
Concentration of Measure Techniques and Applications
Concentration of measure is a phenomenon in which a random variable that depends in a smooth way on a large number of independent random variables is essentially constant. The random variable will
The Phenome-Wide Distribution of Genetic Variance
This work shows that 8,750 gene expression traits measured in adult male Drosophila serrata exhibit widespread genetic covariance among random sets of five traits, implying that pleiotropy is common and provides a practical empirical framework for the genetic analysis of high-dimensional phenome-wide trait sets and for the investigation of the extent ofhigh-dimensional genetic constraint.


An observation about submatrices
Let $M$ be an arbitrary Hermitian matrix of order $n$, and $k$ be a positive integer less than $n$. We show that if $k$ is large, the distribution of eigenvalues on the real line is almost the same
The Sizes of Compact Subsets of Hilbert Space and Continuity of Gaussian Processes
The first two sections of this paper are introductory and correspond to the two halves of the title. As is well known, there is no complete analog of Lebesue or Haar measure in an
Majorizing measures: the generic chaining
Majorizing measures provide bounds for the supremum of stochastic processes. They represent the most general possible form of the chaining argument going back to Kolmogorov. Majorizing measures arose
Approximation of Projections of Random Vectors
Let X be a d-dimensional random vector and Xθ its projection onto the span of a set of orthonormal vectors {θ1,…,θk}. Conditions on the distribution of X are given such that if θ is chosen according
