Join the Department of Mathematics, Applied Mathematics, and Statistics (MAMS) on **November 13, 2018** for an Analysis and Probability Seminar given PhD Candidate,** Kathryn Stewart.** Kathryn, will speak on **“Truncations of Haar Distributed Random Matrices.”** The seminar will take place in **Yost 306, from 2:30–3:30 PM.**

**Abstract:** In this talk I will give an overview on truncations, that is, principal submatrices, of random Haar distributed matrices. I will discuss a result concerning the approximation of truncations of a random orthogonal matrices by Gaussian matrices, making use of new estimates on the asymptotic means and covariances of traces of powers of Wishart matrices. I will also consider limiting spectral measures of square truncations of random unitary matrices and present recent results based on joint work with E. Meckes.
