### The Multivariate Gaussian Distribution

cs229.stanford.edu

The concept of the covariance matrix is vital to understanding multivariate Gaussian distributions. Recall that for a pair of random variables X and Y, their covariance is deﬁned as Cov[X,Y] = E[(X −E[X])(Y −E[Y])] = E[XY]−E[X]E[Y]. When working with multiple variables, the covariance matrix provides a succinct way to

Our attacks use (in a black-box way) a sub-routine that given a homogeneous multivariate quadratic map P: Fn q →Fm q, finds a non-zero solutionx such that P(x) = 0, if such a solution exists. We in-stantiate this subroutine with the block Wiedemann XL algorithm [14,7,15,6].
