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 ...
