Matrix Math In R

Kevin Feasel



Dave Mason continues his series on matrices in R:

Math operations between matrices is possible too. Here, the same matrix is added to itself. Since it’s the same matrix, they obviously have the same number of elements. The first element is added to the first element, the second element is added to the second element, etc.

> #Add two matrices.
> some_numbers + some_numbers [,1] [,2] [,3] [,4] [,5] [,6]
[1,] 2 4 6 8 10 12
[2,] 14 16 18 20 22 24
[3,] 26 28 30 32 34 36
[4,] 38 40 42 44 46 48

This follows from Dave’s prior posts, but you can see some of the pieces start to fit together.

Roos Colman explains what a Receiver Operating Characteristic (ROC) curve is and how we interpret the Area Under the Curve (AUC): The AUC can be defined as “The probability that a randomly selected case will have a higher test result than a randomly selected control”. Let’s use this definition to calculate and visualize the estimated […]

Pablo Casas walks us through Keras on R: One of the key points in Deep Learning is to understand the dimensions of the vector, matrices and/or arrays that the model needs. I found that these are the types supported by Keras. In Python’s words, it is the shape of the array. To do a binary […]
