The twin to random matrices, and elder sibling of vector random projections. Notes on doing linear algebra operations using randomised matrix projections. Useful for, e.g. randomised regression.

Quite an old family of methods, but extra hot recently.

Obligatory Igor Carron mention: Random matrices are too damn large.

IBM had a research group in this although they seem to have gone silent since a good year in 2014.

Martinsson (2016) seems to be a fresh review of the action.

π make coherent.

## Implementations

- R: rSVD, Randomised SVD in R (Erichson et al. 2016)
- Python/C++: IBMβs libskylark
- c: RSVDPACK implements low rank SVD, ID, and CUR factorizations of matrices, also does GPU calculations. (Martinsson and Voronin 2015; Voronin and Martinsson 2014)
- MATLAB: RandMatrixMatlab (Wang 2015)
