# Eigenvalue distribution relation

Hello,

I was wondering if H_{ii} (that is the ith diagonal element of a random matrix) has the same distribution with its corresponding eigenvalue, say \lambda_{i}.

Thanks

I don't know what you mean by 'its corresponding eigenvalue". How does and eigenvalue "correspond" to a position in a matrix?
