General notations on matrices, determinants, traces etc. are given in the introduction to Chap.  2 and hence they will not be repeated here. Before starting the discussion, we will need some Jacobians of matrix transformations here. For results on Jacobians, see Mathai [3]. For the real matrix-variate case, the determinant of X will be denoted by either det(X) or by |X|. When complex matrices are involved we will use the notation det(X) for determinant because we would like to reserve the notation |(⋅)| for the absolute value of (⋅). In this case the absolute value of the determinant of \(\tilde {X}\) will be written as \(|\mathrm {det}(\tilde {X})|\), denoting a matrix X in the complex domain as \(\tilde {X}\). All matrices appearing in this chapter are p × p real positive definite unless stated otherwise. Some Jacobians of matrix transformations will be stated here as lemmas without proofs. For proofs and other details, see Mathai [3].
