Hi

I am really confused with the "transpose" related stuff.

Can anyone work me through it?

and the paritial differentiation with respect to it

===========================

why is

instead of

and differentiate with respect to beta is

Hi there,

I think what you have writtern is pretty obvious going to give me my answer.

So, my actual problem is dont understand the order of the multiplication,

say

what I would do is

which give me a different 'middle' term...

is just a vector

and if you could see the second pic (which is just next to it)

it confuses me more.... - Apr 24th 2010, 03:46 PMdwsmith

If beta is a vector, is inner product.

Are the Xs and Ys matrices?

If in the second problem if beta is a scalar and X and Y are vectors, the quantity will simplify down to
