Random Matrix Theory and Large Sample Covariance Matrix
时间：2017-04-13 14:00 ~ 15:00
In this talk, I will introduce the large dimensional setting and review some developments of random matrix theory from the point of statistical view, including limiting spectral distribution and the CLT of the liner spectral statistics. As applications, some results on testing and estimation for the covariance matrix will be presented. Finally, I will discuss the common assumptions and technical tools in RMT.
