### Expression for Sum of Multivariate Gaussian Random Vectors

Consider two multidimensional random vectors $x$ and $z$ having Gaussian distributions $P(x)=N(x\mid\mu_x,\Sigma_x)$ and $P(z)=N(z\mid\mu_z,\Sigma_z)$, respectively, together with their sum $y=x+z$. ...

### Dimensionality effect on Fisher's Score

Consider Fisher's Linear Discriminant Analysis (LDA). Let $\mu_0 \in \mathcal{R}^D$ and $\mu_1 \in \mathcal{R}^D$ be means of the two classes. Similarly, let $\Sigma_0 \in \mathcal{R}^{D\times D}$ ...

### Stuck with handling of conditional probability in Bishop's “Pattern Recognition and Machine Learning” (1.66)

I've just started working through the book, and I'm stuck with how the author handles conditional probability in (1.66). The context is as follows. In this chapter we are working with a curve ...
My question is at the bottom. (Most of the descriptive words come from Chris. Bishop's Neural Networks for Pattern Recognition) let $w$ be the weight vector of the neural network and $E$ the error ...
