A Primer on Matrix Calculus, Part 2: Jacobians and other fun

3blue1brown touches on that way of thinking about functions/derivatives in this video 

(very similar to Khan academy video linked in the article)
 

A Primer on Matrix Calculus, Part 1: Basic review

In this paragraph:

 

>In single variable calculus, the chain rule can be written as . In the multivariable case, for a function , we write  where  is the partial derivative of  with respect to its th argument. This can be simplified by employing the following notation, which uses a dot product.

 

What does  stand for?
