Positive definite matrices (tests), Tests for minimum, and Ellipsoids in R^n -- Lecture 27. Learn how to determine if a matrix is positive definite and how to test a matrix for a minimum.
  • How do you test to see if a matrix is positive definite?
  • How do you test a matrix for minimum?
  • What are ellipsoids in R^n?
This video incorporates a lot of Calculus 2 and 3 to test for minimum points and discusses how this relates to positive definite matrices. A good geometrical explanation and view of matrices and Linear Algebra. Ellipsoids in R^n are also discussed.
