Limit theorems for linear eigenvalue statistics of overlapping matrices

TLDR
Several limit theorems for linear eigenvalue statistics of overlapping Wigner and sample covariance matrices are proved, based on a graph-theoretic interpretation of the Chebyshev linear statistics as sums over non-backtracking cyclic paths.

On Asymptotic Behavior of Multilinear Eigenvalue Statistics of Random Matrices

We prove the Law of Large Numbers and the Central Limit Theorem for analogs of U- and V- (von Mises) statistics of eigenvalues of random matrices as their size tends to infinity. We show first that

Universality results for the largest eigenvalues of some sample covariance matrix ensembles

TLDR
This paper extends the well-known result of Soshnikov that the limiting distribution of the largest eigenvalue is same that of Gaussian samples to two cases, when the ratio approaches an arbitrary finite value and the ratio becomes infinite or arbitrarily small.

Fluctuations for linear eigenvalue statistics of sample covariance matrices

We prove a central limit theorem for the difference of linear eigenvalue statistics of a sample covariance matrix W̃ and its minor W . We find that the fluctuation of this difference is much smaller

Fluctuations for differences of linear eigenvalue statistics for sample covariance matrices

We prove a central limit theorem for the difference of linear eigenvalue statistics of a sample covariance matrix [Formula: see text] and its minor [Formula: see text]. We find that the fluctuation

Fluctuations for linear eigenvalue statistics of sample covariance random matrices

We prove a central limit theorem for the difference of linear eigenvalue statistics of a sample covariance matrix $\widetilde{W}$ and its minor $W$. We find that the fluctuation of this difference is

PROPERTIES OF EIGENVALUES AND EIGENVECTORS OF LARGE DIMENSIONAL SAMPLE CORRELATION MATRICES

This paper is to study the properties of eigenvalues and eigenvectors of high dimensional sample correlation matrices. We firstly improve the result of Jiang (2004); Xiao and Zhou (2010) and the

On the limit of the largest eigenvalue of the large dimensional sample covariance matrix

SummaryIn this paper the authors show that the largest eigenvalue of the sample covariance matrix tends to a limit under certain conditions when both the number of variables and the sample size tend

On the empirical distribution of eigenvalues of a class of large dimensional random matrices

A stronger result on the limiting distribution of the eigenvalues of random Hermitian matrices of the form A + XTX*, originally studied in Marcenko and Pastur, is presented. Here, X(N - n), T(n - n),

The impetus for this paper comes mainly from work done in recent years by a number of physicists on a statistical theory of spectra. The book by M. L. Mehta [10] and the collection of reprints edited
