2014-01-11 14:31:13 +0200 | commented answer | derivative of multivariate equation with nested sum Thanks for your answer this is a nice approach for an intermediate solution. p and k are indeed variables and I'm looking more for a solution like $\frac{\partial y(x,v)}{\partial v_{l,f}} = x_l \sum_{j\neq l} v_{j,f} x_j$ . Maybe this is a situation where its just simpler to do it by hand and and use finite difference to check if the gradient is correct... |

2013-12-30 13:36:27 +0200 | asked a question | derivative of multivariate equation with nested sum Hello, I often have to deal with functions like the one below, take derivatives and so on. I would really like to know if I could use a CAS like SAGE to do this tedious and error prone calculations but I couldn't find a similar kind of function in the docs and tutorials. My questions are: - how can I write this function in SAGE ?
for $x\in \mathbf{R}^p; v \in \mathbf{R}^{p \times k}$ - calculate the partial derivatives $\frac{\partial y(x,v)}{\partial v_{i,j}}$ ?
- or the the derivative with respect to the column-vector $\frac{\partial y(x,v)}{\partial v_{:, i} }$ ?
Or is there a better way to work with this kind of function in SAGE? (the function above is only an example) Thanks |
