**Random Matrices in Statistics**

http://www.stat.ucdavis.edu/~alexaue/

This short course gives an introduction to the applications of random matrix theory in statistics, grouped around four major themes. The first gives some background on random matrix theory, its origin and areas of application, and an overview of the fundamental results. The second looks more carefully at useful tools and proof techniques. The third and fourth deal with applications to regularized high-dimensional two-sample tests and asymptotic results of eigenvalue distribution obtained from (symmetrized auto)covariance matrices of high-dimensional linear processes. Required for participation in this short course is a good knowledge of basic probability and mathematical statistics, but the material is presented as self-contained as possible.
