Approximating a subspace by sampling a base without replacement
So now I think I get the bunbury comment. If we assume that we start with a fixed subspace S and then choose a random sequence of new vectors from the space X (in other words, the matrix is going to be generated at random) and ask for the distribution of angles between these new vectors and S then this is equivalent to choosing a random sequence of unit vectors in X. To answer that, we only have to compute the distribution for a single vector in X. Isn't this the same as putting a hyperplane through the origin of a sphere? |

Approximating a subspace by sampling a base without replacement
I see now that you can not mean to measure the distance between the whole subspace and the sample subspace because that distance is going to be zero as a previous comment has mentioned. Instead, you are looking at the distance between each vector and the whole subspace. However, this depends heavily on the matrix as I mentioned. If the columns in the matrix are orthogonal, then the angles between the vectors and the subspace are either 0 or pi/2. |
