### Least probability of collisions using rgb as a hash map

I need to rewrite a short utility library, to get it working with the Brave browser (My actual question isn't about brave per se.) canvas-color-tracker - example of it being used and src/index.js is ...

### Coordinate descent for Lasso, Question about algorithm

I'm not sure why the algorithm computes $c_k$ with $\sum_{j \neq k} w_j x_{i, j}$. Why does one need to ignore the $k^{th}$ feature here? I'm not sure how this is derived. Is this the result of taking ...

### Complexity of Matrix Inversion when $n-2$ Eigenvalues are the same

Suppose we have a symmetric matrix $A \in \mathbb{R}^{n \times n}$ that has $n-2$ equal eigenvalues and the other two are distinct. Question: What would be the complexity of its inversion? On the ...

### Math behind Multi-class linear discriminate analysis (LDA)

I have a question about Linear Discriminant Analysis (LDA) for the purpose of Dimensionality Reduction. So I understand for the algorithm to calculate for $k$ projection vector(s) you need to ...

### Applying SVD compression to integral point images

Suppose that we have an $m\times n$ matrix $A$ of rank $n$, whose entries are 8-bit unsigned integers obtained from a grayscale image. Now we want to apply SVD to $A$ and to use the first $k$ singular ...

### Minimum basis for the nullspace of sparse matrices

Let $A\in\mathbb{F}_2^{m\times n}$ and denote its nullspace as $V=\{x\in\mathbb{F}_2^m:xA=0\}$. The weight of a basis $B=\{b_1,\dots,b_l\}$ for $V$ is the total weight of vectors in the basis, denoted ...

### Minimize number of math operation of a specific matrix vector multiplication?

Let's say we have a Matrix M and a column vector v like below multiply equals Assume we can only perform multiplication, addition and substraction operation. With normal approach we need 3 ...
I'm trying find an optimization for an equation related to theorem 3.5.7 from "Finite Markov Chains" by Kemeny and Snell (1976). The theorem is: $$H=(N-I)N_{dg}^{-1}$$ Where $N_{dg}$ is a diagonal ...
