7 Conclusions The paper has shown that the eigenvalues of a positive semi-definite matrix generated from a random sample is concentrated. Furthermore the sum of the last m − k eigenvalues is similarly concentrated as is the residual when the data is projected into a fixed subspace. Furthermore, we have shown that estimating the projection subspace on a random sample can give a good model for future data provided the number of examples is much larger than the dimension of the subspace. The results provide 38 J.
