Dot Product Là Gì ? Nghĩa Của Từ Inner Product Trong Tiếng Việt

Other than the matrix multiplication discussed earlier, vectors could be multiplied by two more methods : Dot product and Hadamard Product. Results obtained from both methods are different.Bạn đang xem: Dot product là gì

Dot Product

The elements corresponding to same row and column are multiplied together and the products are added such that, the result is a scalar.

Đang xem: Dot product là gì



Dot product of vectors a, b and c

Unlike matrix multiplication the result of dot product is not another vector or matrix, it is a scalar.



Dot product of vector a and b

Order of vectors does not matter for dot product, just the number of elements in both vectors should be equal.

The geometric formula of dot product is


Here |a| and |b| are magnitude of vector a and b and they are multiplied with cosine of angle between vectors

Dot product is also called inner product or scalar product.

Projection of Vector

Assuming that we have two vectors c and d, subtended by angle, phi(Ф).

Vector c with subscript-ed d represents projection of vector c on vector d

We can conclude from figure that the projection is equal to the horizontal component of vector c with respect to the angle phi(Ф).

Projections have wide use in linear algebra and machine learning (Support Vector Machine(SVM) is a machine learning algorithm, used for classification of data).

Hadamard Product (Element -wise Multiplication)

Hadamard product of two vectors is very similar to matrix addition, elements corresponding to same row and columns of given vectors/matrices are multiplied together to form a new vector/matrix.

It is named after French Mathematician, Jacques Hadamard.

Hadamard product of vector g, h and m

The order of matrices/vectors to be multiplied should be same and the resulting matrix will also be of same order.

Matrix N is of same order as input matrices (2×3)

Hadamard product is used in image compression techniques such as JPEG. It is also known as Schur product after German Mathematician, Issai Schur.
