We study delocalization properties of null vectors and eigenvectors of matrices with i.i.d. subgaussian entries. Such properties describe quantitatively how "flat" is a vector and confirm one of the universality conjectures stating that distributions of eigenvectors of many classes of random matrices are close to the uniform distribution on the unit sphere. In particular, we get lower bounds on the smallest coordinates of eigenvectors, which are optimal as the case of Gaussian matrices shows. The talk is based on the joint work with Konstantin Tikhomirov.
