# No eigenvalues outside the support of the limiting spectral distribution of large-dimensional sample covariance matrices

@article{Bai1998NoEO, title={No eigenvalues outside the support of the limiting spectral distribution of large-dimensional sample covariance matrices}, author={Zhidong Bai and Jack W. Silverstein}, journal={Annals of Probability}, year={1998}, volume={26}, pages={316-345} }

Let B n = (1/N)T n 1/2 X n X n *Tn 1/2 , where X n is n x N with i.i.d. complex standardized entries having finite fourth moment and T n 1/2 is a Hermitian square root of the nonnegative definite Hermitian matrix T n . It is known that, as n → ∞, if n/N converges to a positive number and the empirical distribution of the eigenvalues of T n converges to a proper probability distribution, then the empirical distribution of the eigenvalues of B n converges a.s. to a nonrandom limit.

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.
