    Metric Space confusion

    I have a simple question about the notation. I want to be more correct with notation, I don't understand exactly what the notation is saying. In regards to a Metric space A metric space is an ordered pair (M,d) where M is a set and d is a metric on M, i.e., a function {{\bf{d: M \times...

    Hyperbolic relations in deriving Lorentz transformations

    Preface to my question: I can assure you this is not a homework question of any kind. I simply have a pedagogical fascination with physics outside of my own studies in school. Also, I did a quick search through the forum and could not find a question similar enough to what I want to know, so i...

    What is a one-to-one correspondence or one to one mapping? I have heard the later term used plenty of times in linear algebra classes I've taken, i.e. there is a one to one mapping from a subspace to another. But I've never really understood what that meant entirely. Are the two above phrasees...

    State space representations in LTI systems

    I just started my first graduate level controls class this semester, and it looks like my professors notes aren't going to be quite enough. Can anybody recommend a good book with lots of state space representation examples, or if not a book, a website would do fine as well. Thanks for any help.
