Subadditivity of matrix \(\phi\)-entropy and concentration of random matrices. (English) Zbl 1405.60013

Summary: This paper considers a class of entropy functionals defined for random matrices, and it demonstrates that these functionals satisfy a subadditivity property. Several matrix concentration inequalities are derived as an application of this result.
