Probability density function

  1. Apr 10, 2012 #1

    I have a probability density function defined by

    1 / D x E . eABC/2

    D is a single number
    E is a determinant of a matrix
    . is the dot product between the two sides of the function
    e Im pretty sure is meant to be eulers constant
    A is a 5x1 vector
    B is a 5 x 5 matrix
    C is a 5x1 vector

    To my understanding eulers constant can only be raised to the power of a single number
    My question is that how can the second half of the equation be solved if i require eABC/2 (which is effectivly a 5x1 matrix / 2)?

    Can any one help me with this ?

    Thanks in advance

    ABC looks like a scalar to me. BC is a vector, so I presume that the last step is a dot product of A with BC.
