S3E22: The Mättrix Part 1: Defining & Manipulating Matrices


In this first of two episodes, Greg & Patrick lay the foundations of matrix algebra, mathematically and geometrically, and start connecting these important underlying ideas to statistics. Along the way, they also discuss STDs, the 110 to the 10 to the 405, mystics, skin bags of water, vector Victor, Tac flashlights on misty nights, remembering mnemonics, Stephen Hawking, Bilbo Baggins, and Greg’s sultry voice.
