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.

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. Note that a matrix can be considered a tensor of rank two.

The corresponding concept from vector calculus is indicated at the end of each subsection. In the latter case, the product rule algebea quite be applied directly, either, but the equivalent can be done with a bit more work using the differential identities.

Example Simple examples of this include the velocity vector in Euclidean spacewhich is the tangent vector of the position vector considered as a function of time. Differentiation notation Second derivative Third derivative Change of variables Implicit differentiation Related rates Taylor’s theorem.

Note also that this matrix has its indexing transposed; m rows and n columns. Because vectors are matrices with only one column, the simplest matrix derivatives algebraa vector derivatives.

The directional derivative of a scalar function f x of the space vector x in the direction of the unit vector u is defined using the gradient as follows.

These can be useful in minimization problems found in many areas of applied mathematics and have adopted the names tangent matrix and gradient matrix respectively after their analogs for vectors.


[math/] Tensor Products in Quantum Functional Analysis: the Non-Matricial Approach

Using denominator-layout notation, we have: Akgebra also handle cases of scalar-by-scalar derivatives that involve an intermediate vector or matrix. The tensor index notation with its Einstein summation convention is very similar to the matrix calculus, except one writes only a single component at a time.

In these rules, “a” is a scalar. These are the derivative of a matrix by a scalar and the derivative of a scalar by a matrix.

Matrix calculus

Note that exact equivalents of the scalar product rule and chain rule algegra not exist when applied to matrix-valued functions of matrices. This book uses a mixed layout, i. 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.

In that case the scalar must be a function of each of the independent variables in the matrix.

This section discusses the similarities and differences between notational conventions that are used in the various fields that take advantage of matrix calculus. The next two introductory sections use the numerator layout convention simply for the purposes of convenience, to avoid overly complicating the discussion.

Magnus and Heinz Neudecker, the following notations are both unsuitable, as the determinant of the second resulting matrix would have “no tensorixl and “a useful chain rule does not exist” if these notations are being used: A is not a function of xg X is any polynomial with scalar coefficients, or any matrix function defined by an infinite polynomial series yy. Notice that we could also talk about the derivative of a vector with respect to a matrix, or any of the other unfilled cells in our table.


The identities given further down are presented in forms that can be used in conjunction with all common layout conventions. However, these derivatives are most naturally organized in a tensor of rank higher than 2, so that they do not fit neatly into a matrix. As noted above, in general, the results of operations will be transposed when switching between numerator-layout and denominator-layout notation. Not to be confused with geometric calculus or vector calculus.

Calculus of Vector- and Matrix-Valued Functions”. In cases involving matrices where it makes sense, we give numerator-layout and mixed-layout results.

This includes the derivation of:. See the layout conventions section for a more detailed table. It is used in regression analysis to compute, for example, the ordinary least squares regression formula for the case of multiple explanatory variables.

As a first example, consider the gradient from vector calculus. Such matrices will be denoted using bold capital letters: In mathematicsmatrix calculus is a specialized notation for doing multivariable calculusespecially over spaces of matrices. It has the advantage that one can easily manipulate arbitrarily high rank tensors, whereas tensors of rank higher than two are quite unwieldy with matrix notation. The derivative of a matrix function Y by a scalar x is known as the tangent matrix and is given in numerator layout notation by.

Aalgebra mistakes can result when combining results from different authors without carefully verifying that compatible notations have been used.
