### q-deformation of the unitary group integral

There is a well-known orthogonality property of $U(N)$ group characters
$$
\int d U \chi_{\mu}(U)\chi_\lambda(U^\dagger V)=\delta_{\mu\lambda}\frac{\chi_\mu(V)}{\dim_\mu}
$$
where the integral is ...

### Question about “wide” random matrices

Let $A \in \mathbb{R}^{m \times n}$ be a random matrix with i.i.d. entries (the distribution is not important), where $m < n$ (i.e. $A$ is a "wide" matrix). I would like a lower bound on
$$

### Dependence of trace norm on matrix size for smooth vs. random matrices.

Problem
Consider two d x d complex matrices, R and S, whose entries lie in the unit disk:
$\quad |R_{i,j}|<1 \quad$ and $\quad |S_{i,j}|<1 $.
Say that R is constructed by randomly choosing ...

### Random Walks and Lyapunov exponents

Given a sequence $Y_1, Y_2, \dots$ of i.i.d. matrices in $GL_n(\mathbb R)$, there is a theorem of Furstenberg and Kesten which says that if $\mathbb E(\log||Y_1||)$ is finite, there exists a constant ...
