Mathematical Tools

  • Magdi S. Mahmoud


The backbone of this chapter evolves from finite dimension vector spaces, mappings and convex analysis. Much of the material is standard linear algebra, with which the reader is assumed to have some familiarity and therefore our intention is to provide an overview of the key ideas and tools.
