Re: Finding the derivative of a matrix equation

Let A=[a_lm] be the matrix Xf(X). Then Tg(Xf(X)) is a vector valued function, from R^(n^2) to R^n taking X=[x_lm] to [Σg(a_1m),...,Σg(a_nm)] where sums are from m=1 to n. But Tg(Xf(X)) ends up being a scalar, f(X) is n x 1, X is n x n, g does not alter the dimensions and T is 1 x n giving us, Or di...

Finding the derivative of a matrix equation

I have an expression and need to find the derivative but I am not sure of my results. X is a square matrix with the components x_ij were i denotes row and j denotes column. g(X) is a know function applied componentwise to the matrix x, for example if x=[1 0] and g(X)=sin(X) then g(X)=[sin(1), sin(0)...

Re: Simple graph theory terminology question

With length I mean that with each edge having a given distance. the length of a path is the sum of the edges contained in the path. As per the normal definition of the shortest path problem

Simple graph theory terminology question

What is a directed graph called if it has the property that all simple paths from some node n1 to a node n2 have the same length? (in this case length is defined as weights given to each edge in the usual manner of the shortest path problem)

Edit: added the requirement of the graph being simple

Re: Probability paradox?

What range does the random number generator operate in?

if it takes a random number in (0, inf) then it will always generate inf. So just find the upper bound on the generator and you get the number of possible answers.

[linear optimization] Is there a transformation such that

In linear optimization each basic solution (not necessarily feasible) in the primal problem is equivalent to a basic solution in the dual problem. Is there a transformation from the primal to the dual (or vice versa) such that 1. All basic solutions in the primal are mapped to the corresponding basi...

Re: Simple binomial coefficient question

Ok, thanks.

Unforunate that there is no more elegant way to write it.

n<=q
n<=p

So I can't use ++$_ suggestion.

Thanks for the help

Simple binomial coefficient question

Is it possible to simplify the sum

[imath]\sum_{t=1}^n \begin{pmatrix}
p\\ t \end{pmatrix} \begin{pmatrix}
q\\ t \end{pmatrix}[/imath]



Can't seem to get the math typing to work, so I'll rewrite it to be readable

sum_{t=1}^n (p t)(q t) where (p t) is p choose t.

Neuropath, its not very funny but quite philosophical, and a wee bit disturbing.

It delves into the human mind and how your mind makes you what you are. Its also quite likely to mess up your head
