 Apr 23 comment Most efficient way to compute eigenvectors / values of this matrix? There is a disadvantage to Cardano's method for solving the general cubic polynomial, that even when all three roots are real, the intermediate expressions for the roots may involve complex arithmetic. When it known (as here) that all three roots are real, there is an alternative approach using trigonometric functions instead of radicals to give only real expressions for the three roots. Apr 23 comment Most efficient way to compute eigenvectors / values of this matrix? Note that if $A$ is a real symmetric matrix, its eigenvalues are real no matter what the physical motivation. Apr 19 revised About training HMM by using EM corrected spelling in title Apr 16 comment Need help writing the code for the following optimization That is: $$\min_{\text{real } Z} ||Y-Z||_2 + ||F(Z)||_1$$ should be the objective function. Even this you might prefer to restate in terms of $W = Z-Y$, using $||W||_2 + ||F(W+Y)||_1$, where $W$ ranges over real arrays the same size as $Y$. Apr 16 comment Need help writing the code for the following optimization The short answer is to rewrite the objective function with real array $Z$ instead of ifft(X) and $F(Z)$, the fast Fourier transform of $Z$ instead of $X$.

For example, must $X$ be real values?

Apr 15 reviewed Reviewed Efficiently rotate vector in 2D (and 3D) Apr 15 comment Efficiently rotate vector in 2D (and 3D) Are the vectors to be "randomly" rotated based at the origin? If you want to achieve a specific distribution, say a uniform distribution, then it would be helpful to Readers to see your implementation using "the division and the square root" before they try to offer an equivalent that avoids these.

The Question is too brief for many Readers to recognize what you want "a Matlab code" to do. Using so few words does not promote a quick response from your Readers. Also you might look at how to post mathematical expressions here using $\LaTeX$. Apr 15 reviewed Reviewed IVP Using Numerical Methods Apr 15 comment IVP Using Numerical Methods Two points. First, at least part of your problem about showing $e(t)$ satisfies the IVP is trivial. You should at least spot which of the two parts is easier. Second, the last part of the Question assumes $f(t,y) = \lambda y$. This lack of dependence of $f$ on "time" $t$ is often referred to as an autonomous system. Special deductions can be made from this property. Apr 12 comment Pure math questions arising in computer vision, and the need for mathematicians to solve them Work out how to email me and I'll gladly give you some free advice. Apr 11 reviewed No Action Needed What are alternatives to openbabel to convert CML file to image? Apr 11 comment Pure math questions arising in computer vision, and the need for mathematicians to solve them As anecdotal information, I was approached last week by an out-of-state recruiter for a firm that seems to use some computer vision technology to produce dental appliances. I never spoke to anyone but the low-level recruiter, but the job requirements write-up he shared mentioned algorithms and data structures and computational geometry. He said that they were having trouble filling the position due to programmers often not having enough experience or interest in the mathematical aspects.
