Introduction General Definition The tensor product is not the same as the Cartesian product A jump to categories Applications TensorFlow Artificial Intelligence Quantum Optics SUMMARY: We show why the tensor product is not the same as the Cartesian product, and we extend that result to categories. We then mention the use of the tensor product in applications, such as artificial intelligence and quantum optics. Introduction For any vectors $\left\langle x_{1},x_{2}\right\rangle $ of $\mathbb{R}^{2}$ and $\left\langle y_{1},y_{2},y_{3}\right\rangle $ of $\mathbb{R}^{3}$, a product of these two vectors, which is denoted as $\left\langle x_{1},x_{2}\right\rangle \otimes\left\langle y_{1},y_{2},y_{3}\right\rangle $, is defined as the matrix \[ \left[\begin{array}{ccc} x_{1}y_{1} & x_{1}y_{2} & x_{1}y_{_{3}}\\ x_{2}y_{1} & x_{2}y_{2} &…


A Generalization of Convex Sets and Convex Functions
Introduction The setting: a vector space over a field with a partial order A Convex set is the same as an orderconvex set A convex function defined in terms of a convex set A convex function in terms of orderconvexity Convex sets and convex functions in machine learning Convex Optimization Software Libraries SUMMARY: We define a convex set in a general framework of a vector space over a field with a partial order, and we show how the general notion is related to the usual notion of a convex set. Then we define a convex function in terms of that general notion of a convex set, and we show…

The Rank of a Matrix with some Association with Machine Learning and Quantum Computing
Introduction General Definition Some results involving the rank of a matrix Theorem 5.1 (Ivanyos et al., 2018) Lemma 5.2 (Ivanyos et al., 2018) Rank of a matrix in machine learning Lowrank matrix approximation Apache Spark: a computer framework for matrix computation Rank of a matrix in quantum information Kraus Operators Introduction (back to outline) For a matrix \[A=\left[\begin{array}{ccc}0 & 1 & 1\\1 & 2 & 1\\1 & 1 & 3\end{array}\right],\] where each entry is a real number, the columns of $A$ form a linearly independent set of vectors of $\mathbb{R}^{3}$, so the subspace generated by the three columns is of dimension $3$, which is isomorphic to $\mathbb{R}^{3}$. The dimension…
