Let's just delve a little deeper into those examples to convey more intuition about what LSI is doing. So look further in the definition of the co-sine similarity measure. So the numerator or the similarity between the two documents was this inner product, which is therefore sum over K, XIK, XJK. So this inner product would be equal to zero if the two documents have no words in common. So this is really – sum over K – indicator of whether documents, I and J, both contain the word, K, because I guess XIK indicates whether document I contains the word K, and XJK indicates whether document J contains the word, K.

So the product would be one only if the word K appears in both documents. Therefore, the similarity between these two documents would be zero if the two documents have no words in common. For example, suppose your document, XI, has the word study and the word XJ, has the word learn. Then these two documents may be considered entirely dissimilar.

[Inaudible] effective study strategies. Sometimes you read a news article about that. So you ask, what other documents are similar to this? If there are a bunch of other documents about good methods to learn, than there are words in common. So similarity [inaudible]is zero.

So here's a cartoon of what we hope [inaudible] PCA will do, which is suppose that on the horizontal axis, I plot the word learn, and on the vertical access, I plot the word study. So the values take on either the value of zero or one. So if a document contains the words learn but not study, then it'll plot that document there. If a document contains neither the word study nor learn, then it'll plot that at zero, zero.

So here's a cartoon behind what PCA is doing, which is we identify lower dimensional subspace. That would be sum – eigen vector, we get out of PCAs. Now, supposed we have a document about learning. We have a document about studying. The document about learning points to the right. Document about studying points up. So the inner product, or the co-sine angle between these two documents would be – excuse me. The inner product between these two documents will be zero. So these two documents are entirely unrelated, which is not what we want.

Documents about study, documents about learning, they are related. But we take these two documents, and we project them onto this subspace. Then these two documents now become much closer together, and the algorithm will recognize that when you say the inner product between these two documents, you actually end up with a positive number. So LSI enables our algorithm to recognize that these two documents have some positive similarity between them.

So that's just intuition about what PCA may be doing to text data. The same thing goes to other examples and the words study and learn. So you have – you find a document about politicians and a document with the names of prominent politicians. That will also bring the documents closer together, or just any related topics, they end up [inaudible] points closer together and just lower dimensional space.

sure. what is your question?
okay, so you have 6 raised to the power of 2. what is that part of your answer
I don't understand what the A with approx sign and the boxed x mean
it think it's written 20/(X-6)^2 so it's 20 divided by X-6 squared
I'm not sure why it wrote it the other way
I got X =-6
ok. so take the square root of both sides, now you have plus or minus the square root of 20= x-6
oops. ignore that.
so you not have an equal sign anywhere in the original equation?
is it a question of log
I rally confuse this number And equations too I need exactly help

or infinite solutions?
The answer is neither. The function, 2 = 0 cannot exist. Hence, the function is undefined.

good afternoon madam
what is system testing
what is the application of nanotechnology?
In this morden time nanotechnology used in many field . 1-Electronics-manufacturad IC ,RAM,MRAM,solar panel etc 2-Helth and Medical-Nanomedicine,Drug Dilivery for cancer treatment etc 3- Atomobile -MEMS, Coating on car etc. and may other field for details you can check at Google
anybody can imagine what will be happen after 100 years from now in nano tech world
after 100 year this will be not nanotechnology maybe this technology name will be change . maybe aftet 100 year . we work on electron lable practically about its properties and behaviour by the different instruments
name doesn't matter , whatever it will be change... I'm taking about effect on circumstances of the microscopic world
how hard could it be to apply nanotechnology against viral infections such HIV or Ebola?
silver nanoparticles could handle the job?
not now but maybe in future only AgNP maybe any other nanomaterials
I'm interested in Nanotube
this technology will not going on for the long time , so I'm thinking about femtotechnology 10^-15
can nanotechnology change the direction of the face of the world

At high concentrations (>0.01 M), the relation between absorptivity coefficient and absorbance is no longer linear. This is due to the electrostatic interactions between the quantum dots in close proximity. If the concentration of the solution is high, another effect that is seen is the scattering of light from the large number of quantum dots. This assumption only works at low concentrations of the analyte. Presence of stray light.
