## Study Notes

### Linear Transformations

#### Definition

A linear transformation is a function between vector spaces that preserves the operations of vector addition and scalar multiplication.

#### Properties

• Linearity: A function T: V → W is linear if it satisfies:
• T(av) = aT(v) for any scalar a and vector v
• T(v + w) = T(v) + T(w) for any vectors v and w
• Additivity: T(v + w) = T(v) + T(w)
• Homogeneity: T(av) = aT(v)

#### Matrix Representation

• A linear transformation can be represented by a matrix
• If T: ℝⁿ → ℝᵐ is a linear transformation, then there exists an m x n matrix A such that:
• T(v) = Av for any vector v in ℝⁿ

#### Operations on Linear Transformations

• Composition: The composition of two linear transformations is also a linear transformation
• Inverse: If a linear transformation has an inverse, it is also a linear transformation
• Scalar Multiplication: The scalar multiple of a linear transformation is also a linear transformation

#### Types of Linear Transformations

• Injection (One-to-One): A linear transformation that maps distinct inputs to distinct outputs
• Surjection (Onto): A linear transformation that maps to every output in the codomain
• Bijection (One-to-One Correspondence): A linear transformation that is both an injection and a surjection

#### Applications in Data Science

• Data Transformation: Linear transformations can be used to transform data from one space to another
• Dimensionality Reduction: Linear transformations can be used to reduce the dimensionality of high-dimensional data
• Feature Extraction: Linear transformations can be used to extract relevant features from data
