Statement at 2:46 minute: Mathematically, this is the same as a fully connected layer because each of these 400 nodes has a filter of dimension 5 by 5 by 16. So each of those 400 values is some arbitrary linear function of these 5 by 5 by 16 activations from the previous layer.

Doubt 1: Can u please explain it , unable to understand the statement same as fully connected layer? Because only two Fully connected layer combines together equivalent to 1*1*400 right, but in the lecture first fully connected layer pointed to first 1*1*400 volume and second fully connected layer points to second 1*1*400 volume. How it become valid ? or before first FC, nodes are flatten out then connected densely to first FC ?

Doubt 2: what is arbitrary linear function here ?

Doubt 3: This statement is unclear. So each of those 400 values is some arbitrary linear function of these 5 by 5 by 16 activations from the previous layer. can u pleease explain it ?
