By Greg W. Anderson

The speculation of random matrices performs a major position in lots of parts of natural arithmetic and employs quite a few subtle mathematical instruments (analytical, probabilistic and combinatorial). This different array of instruments, whereas testifying to the energy of the sector, offers numerous bold hindrances to the newcomer, or even the specialist probabilist. This rigorous advent to the elemental concept is satisfactorily self-contained to be obtainable to graduate scholars in arithmetic or similar sciences, who've mastered likelihood conception on the graduate point, yet haven't unavoidably been uncovered to complex notions of useful research, algebra or geometry. worthy history fabric is accrued within the appendices and workouts also are incorporated all through to check the reader's knowing. Enumerative recommendations, stochastic research, huge deviations, focus inequalities, disintegration and Lie algebras all are brought within the textual content, that allows you to permit readers to technique the examine literature with self assurance.

Ik =1 where T¯i,iN = ETiN TiN − ETiN ETiN . 6 is now played by pairs of words, which is a particular case of a sentence. 12 (S -sentences) Given a set S , an S -sentence a is a finite sequence of S -words w1 , . . , wn , at least one word long. Two S -sentences a1 , a2 are called equivalent, denoted a1 ∼ a2 , if there is a bijection on S that maps one into the other. 18 2. W IGNER MATRICES As with words, for a sentence a = (w1 , w2 , . . , wn ), we define the support as supp (a) = ni=1 supp (wi ), and the weight wt(a) as the cardinality of supp (a).

Then, trAB = trDAUDBU T = ∑ λiA λ jB u2i j . i, j The last sum is linear in the coefficients vi j = u2i j , and the orthogonality of U implies that ∑ j vi j = 1, ∑i vi j = 1. Thus trAB ≤ sup ∑ λiA λ jB vi j . 28) But this is a maximization of a linear functional over the convex set of doubly stochastic matrices, and the maximum is obtained at the extreme points, which are well known to correspond to permutations The maximum among permutations is then easily checked to be ∑i λiA λiB . 19. 28) is the identity matrix.

W IGNER MATRICES Proof Note that trA2 = ∑i (λiA )2 and trB2 = ∑i (λiB )2 . Let U denote the matrix diagonalizing B written in the basis determined by A, and let DA , DB denote the diagonal matrices with diagonal elements λiA , λiB respectively. Then, trAB = trDAUDBU T = ∑ λiA λ jB u2i j . i, j The last sum is linear in the coefficients vi j = u2i j , and the orthogonality of U implies that ∑ j vi j = 1, ∑i vi j = 1. Thus trAB ≤ sup ∑ λiA λ jB vi j . 28) But this is a maximization of a linear functional over the convex set of doubly stochastic matrices, and the maximum is obtained at the extreme points, which are well known to correspond to permutations The maximum among permutations is then easily checked to be ∑i λiA λiB .
