## Study Notes

### Vectors and Vector Operations

- Vectors can be added and scaled using simple operations
- The
`show_vector`

function is used to visualize vectors in a 2D plane - Vectors can be interpolated using linear interpolation, which is a weighted sum of two vectors
- The
`np.linalg.norm`

function is used to calculate the magnitude of a vector

### Matrix Operations

- Matrices can be multiplied using the
`@`

operator or the`matmul`

function - Matrix multiplication is only possible if the number of columns in the first matrix matches the number of rows in the second matrix
- The
`matmul`

function can be used to perform matrix multiplication with broadcasting - The
`np.transpose`

function can be used to transpose a matrix

### Linear Transformations

- Linear transformations can be represented as matrices
- The matrix product of two linear transformations is a new linear transformation
- The order of matrix multiplication matters (e.g.
`scale_x @ rot30`

is not the same as`rot30 @ scale_x`

) - Linear transformations can be visualized using matrices and scatter plots

### Covariance and Correlation

- The covariance of a dataset can be calculated using the
`np.cov`

function - The covariance matrix represents the variance and covariance of each pair of variables
- The
`eigsorted`

function is used to sort the eigenvalues and eigenvectors of a covariance matrix - The
`cov_ellipse`

function is used to visualize the covariance ellipse of a dataset

### Diagonal and Identity Matrices

- Diagonal matrices can be created using the
`np.diag`

function - The identity matrix can be created using the
`np.eye`

function - The identity matrix does not change the result when multiplied with another matrix
- Diagonal and identity matrices have specific properties when multiplied with other matrices

### Miscellaneous

- The
`np.random.normal`

function can be used to generate random normal variables - The
`plt.hist2d`

function can be used to create a 2D histogram - The
`scipy.special.gamma`

function is used to calculate the gamma function
