A fourth-order tensor relates two second-order tensors. Matrix notation of such relations is only possible, when the 9 components of the second-order tensor are . space equipped with coefficients taken from some good operator algebra. In this paper we introduce, using only the non-matricial language, both the classical (Grothendieck) projective tensor product of normed spaces. then the quotient vector space S/J may be endowed with a matricial ordering through .. By linear algebra, the restriction of σ to the algebraic tensor product is a.

Keep in mind that various authors use different combinations of numerator and denominator layouts for different types of derivatives, and there is no guarantee that an author will consistently use either numerator or denominator layout for all types. Match up the formulas below with those quoted in the source to determine the layout used for that particular type of derivative, but be careful not to assume that derivatives of other types necessarily follow the same kind of layout.
The vector and matrix derivatives presented in the sections to follow take full advantage of matrix notationusing a single variable to represent a large number of variables. In vector calculusthe gradient of a scalar field y in the space R n whose independent coordinates are the components of x is the transpose of the derivative of a scalar by a vector. To be consistent, we should do one of the following:. An element of M 1,1 is a scalar, denoted with lowercase italic typeface: From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
There are, of course, a total of nine possibilities using scalars, vectors, and matrices. Here, we have used the term “matrix” in its most general sense, recognizing that vectors and scalars are simply matrices with one column and then one row respectively. Similarly we will find that the derivatives involving matrices will reduce to derivatives involving vectors in a corresponding way. Archived from the original on 2 March For example, in attempting to find the maximum likelihood estimate of a multivariate normal distribution using matrix calculus, if the domain is a k x1 column vector, then the result using the numerator layout will be in the form of a 1x k row vector.

Fundamental theorem Limits of functions Continuity Mean value theorem Rolle’s algebea. Definitions of these two conventions and comparisons between them are collected in the layout conventions section. The six kinds of derivatives that can be most neatly organized in matrix form are collected in the following table. For this reason, in this subsection we consider only how one can write the derivative of a matrix by another matrix.
This section’s factual accuracy is disputed. Serious mistakes can result when combining results from different authors without carefully verifying that compatible notations have been used.
These are not as widely considered and a notation is not widely agreed upon. The chain rule applies in some of the cases, but unfortunately does not apply in matrix-by-scalar derivatives or scalar-by-matrix derivatives in the latter case, mostly involving the trace operator applied to matrices.
Important examples of scalar functions of matrices include the trace of a matrix and the determinant. The two groups can be distinguished by whether they write the derivative of aogebra scalar with respect to a vector as a column vector or a row vector.
Magnus and Heinz Neudecker, the following notations are both unsuitable, as the determinant of the second resulting matrix would have “no interpretation” and “a useful chain rule does not exist” if these notations are being used: Thus, either the results should be transposed at the end or the denominator layout or mixed layout should be used.
In the latter case, the product rule can’t quite be applied directly, either, but the equivalent can be done with a bit more work using the differential identities. As mentioned above, there are competing notations for laying out systems of partial derivatives in vectors and matrices, and no standard appears to be emerging yet.
An element of M n ,1that is, mmatricial column vectoris denoted with a boldface lowercase letter: Both of these conventions are possible even when the common assumption is made that vectors should be treated as column vectors when combined with matrices rather than row vectors. Using denominator-layout notation, we have: As a first example, consider the gradient from vector calculus.
Such matrices will be denoted using bold capital letters: It is important to realize the following:. X T denotes matrix transposetr X is the traceand det X algebrq X is the determinant.
This book uses a aglebra layout, i. A is not a function of x A is symmetric. However, even within a given field different authors can be found using competing conventions. As noted above, cases where vector and matrix denominators are written in transpose notation are equivalent to numerator layout with the denominators written without the transpose. In analog with vector calculus this derivative is often written as the following.
However, the product rule of this sort does apply to the matricila form see belowand this is the way to derive many of the identities below involving the trace function, combined with the fact that the trace function allows transposing and cyclic permutation, i.

Authors of both groups often write as though their specific convention were standard. To help make sense of all the identities below, keep in mind the most important rules: This section discusses the similarities and differences between notational conventions that are used in the various fields that take advantage of matrix calculus.
This can arise, for example, if a multi-dimensional parametric curve is defined in terms of a scalar variable, and then a derivative of a scalar function of the curve is taken with respect to the scalar that parameterizes the curve. For each of the various combinations, we give numerator-layout and denominator-layout results, except in the cases above where denominator layout rarely occurs.
As for vectors, the other two types of higher matrix derivatives can be seen as applications of the derivative of a matrix by a matrix by using a matrix with one column in the correct place.
Notice here that y:
