### Distribution of inverse Wishart to a power?

In a related question, I had asked about the norm induced by an inverse Wishart matrix. I am interested in generalizing that result somewhat. Let $A\sim\mathcal{W}_p\left(I,n\right)$, a Wishart matrix ...

### Sampling distribution of average of some covariance matrices

I have $K$ datasets, each with $N$ variables and $M$ samples (they are in fact EEG time series, but I discard time and treat them as $K$ iid multivariate samples) and assume they are coming from the ...

### Expected eigenvalues of a Wishart Matrix

I consider a $n\times n$ Wishart Matrix with expected value $p \cdot I_n$, i.e. a matrix of the form $$W = XX'$$ with $X$ a $n\times p$ matrix with independent standard normal entries. It is easy ...

### Property of Wishart distribution

I am solving the next exercise about a property of a Wishart Distribution: $$M_1\sim W_p(\Sigma,n_1)$$ $$M_2\sim W_p(\Sigma,n_2)$$ are independent, then $M_1+M_2\sim W_p(\Sigma,n_1+n_2)$ I have ...
