Abstract

This paper discusses certain properties of heterogeneous hypergeometric functions with two matrix arguments. These functions are newly defined but have already appeared in statistical literature and are useful when dealing with the derivation of certain distributions for the eigenvalues of singular beta-Wishart matrices. The joint density function of the eigenvalues and the distribution of the largest eigenvalue can be expressed in terms of heterogeneous hypergeometric functions. Exact computation of the distribution of the largest eigenvalue is conducted for real and complex cases.
