However, in multiple locations in the textbook, the dataset is represented as a set. For example, at the bottom of page 8.
My question is, is the dataset a vector consisting of pairs, or a set of pairs?
In other words, the distinction between [(1,2), (3,4)]^T versus {(1,2), (3,4)}. I don't really understand the notation D = (x_1, y_1), (x_2, y_2)...(x_N,y_N) because as it is written it is neither a vector nor a set.
I apologize in advance if I am being too rigorous and nitpicky
