# Fluctuations of the Product of Random Matrices and Generalized Lyapunov Exponent

@article{Texier2019FluctuationsOT, title={Fluctuations of the Product of Random Matrices and Generalized Lyapunov Exponent}, author={Christophe Texier}, journal={arXiv: Mathematical Physics}, year={2019} }

I present a general framework allowing to carry out explicit calculation of the moment generating function of random matrix products $\Pi_n=M_nM_{n-1}\cdots M_1$, where $M_i$'s are i.i.d.. Following Tutubalin [Theor. Probab. Appl. {\bf 10}, 15 (1965)], the calculation of the generating function is reduced to finding the largest eigenvalue of a certain transfer operator associated with a family of representations of the group. The formalism is illustrated by considering products of random…
