Products of Random Matrices With Dirichlet Densities

Arunava Mukherjea

4:15pm-5:05pm

PHY 118

**Abstract**

A random matrix is a matrix where each entry is a random variable (that is, a measurable function). A typical problem for products of random matrices with a limit (in some sense) is to identify the distribution of the limit matrix \(Y\) (that is, the measure \(P\) in the space of matrices given by \(P(B)=\Pr(Y\in B)\)). An easily understood old (but open) problem of this type that involves Gamma and Dirichlet (generalized Beta) densities will be discussed. The talk is guaranteed to be short.
