  • Matrix and Vector

    same argument as above‚ we see that: 5000(0.3) + 10‚ 000(0.8) = The number of people who don’t ride the bus next year. = b2 This system of equations is equivalent to the matrix equation: M x = b where 0.7 0.2 0.3 0.8 5000 10‚ 000 b1 b2 M= 5500 ‚x = and b = . For computing the result after 2 years‚ we just use the same matrix M ‚ however we use b 9500 in place of x. Thus the distribution after 2 years is M b = M 2 x. In fact‚ after n years‚ the distribution is given by M n x. The forgoing

  • Plato and the Matrix

    “The Matrix”‚ a 1999 film by the Wachowski brothers‚ adapts a number of new and ancient philosophies about the truth behind reality‚ but the most central to the overarching framework of the film is adapted from Plato’s Allegory of the Cave.

The film draws in a modern audience‚ who can relate to its protagonist‚ Neo‚ because we

  • Matrix eigenvector

    Eigenvectors and eigenvalues of a matrix The eigenvectors of a square matrix are the non-zero vectors which‚ after being multiplied by the matrix‚ remain proportional to the original vector‚ i.e. any vector that satisfies the equation: where is the matrix in question‚ is the eigenvector and is the associated eigenvalue. As will become clear later on‚ eigenvectors are not unique in the sense that any eigenvector can be multiplied by a constant to form another eigenvector. For each
