RMTReal World Data “When it comes to RMT in the real world, we know close to nothing.” -Prof. Alan Edelman, last week

Who Cares about Covariance Matrices? Basic assumption in many areas of data analysis: multivariate data You get, want to find can be a very bad estimator if finite Current standard using PCA (=SVD): distinguish from null model In RMT language: any eigenvalues which lie very far away from the distribution expected for a white Wishart matrix should be considered signal

Who Cares about Covariance Matrices? Data from: Alizadeh A, et al. (2000) Distinct types of diffuse large B-cell lymphoma identifed by gene expression profiling. Nature 403:503-511.

5
Why adventure beyond white Wishart? Null model not particularly sophisticated. Can we do better? Noise with structure Example: Financial data What if there is no right edge? Known, how many samples do we need before we recover it from empirical data?

Approach: General MP Law Data matrix where and define Y entries are iid (real or complex) and Let H p be the spectral distribution of and assume H p converges weakly to H ∞ Let F P be the spectral distribution of (empirical) and its Stieltjes transform Then: nxp pxp See: Silverstein, J. W. and Bai, Z. D. (1995). On the empirical distribution of eigenvalues of a class of large-dimensional random matrices. J. Multivariate Anal. 54, 2,175–192.
