Gentle Introduction to Linear Algebra, with Spectacular Applications

This is not a traditional tutorial on linear algebra. The material presented here, in a compact style, is rarely taught in college classes. It covers a wide range of topics, while avoiding excessive use of jargon or advanced math. The fundamental tool is the power of a matrix, and its byproduct, the characteristic polynomial. It […]

Fuzzy Regression: A Generic, Model-free, Math-free Machine Learning Technique

Some people climb Mount Everest solo in winter, with no oxygen. Some mathematicians prove difficult theorems using only elementary arithmetic. The proof, despite labeled as “elementary” is typically far more complicated than those based on advanced mathematical theory. The people accomplishing these feasts are very rare. Introduction For years, I have developed machine learning techniques […]
