Some articles on identity covariance matrix:

CMA-ES - Theoretical Foundations - Interpretation As Coordinate System Transformation
... Using a non-identity covariance matrix for the multivariate normal distribution in evolution strategies is equivalent to a coordinate system transformation of the solution vectors, mainly because the sampling ... as an adaptive encoding procedure applied to a simple evolution strategy with identity covariance matrix ...

Famous quotes containing the words matrix and/or identity:

    “The matrix is God?”
    “In a manner of speaking, although it would be more accurate ... to say that the matrix has a God, since this being’s omniscience and omnipotence are assumed to be limited to the matrix.”
    “If it has limits, it isn’t omnipotent.”
