### Derivation of ridge regression for multi-value-target vectors

At university, I learned with these slides about ridge regression and its derivation with the assumption that the target- and predicted values have the dimensions $1\times1$. However, now I need to ...

### Difference Between Two Tikhonov Regularization Schemes

For the solution of $Ax = b$, where $A$ is a square matrix, what is the difference between these two regularized solutions: $x = (A + \alpha I)^{-1}b$ -- coressponding to eq.3 below \$x = (A^TA + \...
