Key Math Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
• Commuting matrices AB = BA.

If diagonalizable, they share n eigenvectors.

• Companion matrix.

Put CI, ... ,Cn in row n and put n - 1 ones just above the main diagonal. Then det(A - AI) = ±(CI + c2A + C3A 2 + .•. + cnA n-l - An).

• Condition number

cond(A) = c(A) = IIAIlIIA-III = amaxlamin. In Ax = b, the relative change Ilox III Ilx II is less than cond(A) times the relative change Ilob III lib II· Condition numbers measure the sensitivity of the output to change in the input.

• Dot product = Inner product x T y = XI Y 1 + ... + Xn Yn.

Complex dot product is x T Y . Perpendicular vectors have x T y = O. (AB)ij = (row i of A)T(column j of B).

• Echelon matrix U.

The first nonzero entry (the pivot) in each row comes in a later column than the pivot in the previous row. All zero rows come last.

• Elimination.

A sequence of row operations that reduces A to an upper triangular U or to the reduced form R = rref(A). Then A = LU with multipliers eO in L, or P A = L U with row exchanges in P, or E A = R with an invertible E.

• Four Fundamental Subspaces C (A), N (A), C (AT), N (AT).

Use AT for complex A.

• Fundamental Theorem.

The nullspace N (A) and row space C (AT) are orthogonal complements in Rn(perpendicular from Ax = 0 with dimensions rand n - r). Applied to AT, the column space C(A) is the orthogonal complement of N(AT) in Rm.

• Gram-Schmidt orthogonalization A = QR.

Independent columns in A, orthonormal columns in Q. Each column q j of Q is a combination of the first j columns of A (and conversely, so R is upper triangular). Convention: diag(R) > o.

• Identity matrix I (or In).

Diagonal entries = 1, off-diagonal entries = 0.

• Linear transformation T.

Each vector V in the input space transforms to T (v) in the output space, and linearity requires T(cv + dw) = c T(v) + d T(w). Examples: Matrix multiplication A v, differentiation and integration in function space.

• Orthogonal matrix Q.

Square matrix with orthonormal columns, so QT = Q-l. Preserves length and angles, IIQxll = IIxll and (QX)T(Qy) = xTy. AlllAI = 1, with orthogonal eigenvectors. Examples: Rotation, reflection, permutation.

• Partial pivoting.

In each column, choose the largest available pivot to control roundoff; all multipliers have leij I < 1. See condition number.

• Pivot.

The diagonal entry (first nonzero) at the time when a row is used in elimination.

• Reflection matrix (Householder) Q = I -2uuT.

Unit vector u is reflected to Qu = -u. All x intheplanemirroruTx = o have Qx = x. Notice QT = Q-1 = Q.

• Simplex method for linear programming.

The minimum cost vector x * is found by moving from comer to lower cost comer along the edges of the feasible set (where the constraints Ax = b and x > 0 are satisfied). Minimum cost at a comer!

• Subspace S of V.

Any vector space inside V, including V and Z = {zero vector only}.

• Symmetric factorizations A = LDLT and A = QAQT.

Signs in A = signs in D.

v + w = (VI + WI, ... , Vn + Wn ) = diagonal of parallelogram.

• Vector space V.

Set of vectors such that all combinations cv + d w remain within V. Eight required rules are given in Section 3.1 for scalars c, d and vectors v, w.
