Key Math Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
• Big formula for n by n determinants.

Det(A) is a sum of n! terms. For each term: Multiply one entry from each row and column of A: rows in order 1, ... , nand column order given by a permutation P. Each of the n! P 's has a + or - sign.

• Cayley-Hamilton Theorem.

peA) = det(A - AI) has peA) = zero matrix.

• 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.

• Cramer's Rule for Ax = b.

B j has b replacing column j of A; x j = det B j I det A

• Dimension of vector space

dim(V) = number of vectors in any basis for V.

• Exponential eAt = I + At + (At)2 12! + ...

has derivative AeAt; eAt u(O) solves u' = Au.

• Free variable Xi.

Column i has no pivot in elimination. We can give the n - r free variables any values, then Ax = b determines the r pivot variables (if solvable!).

• Full row rank r = m.

Independent rows, at least one solution to Ax = b, column space is all of Rm. Full rank means full column rank or full row rank.

• Kirchhoff's Laws.

Current Law: net current (in minus out) is zero at each node. Voltage Law: Potential differences (voltage drops) add to zero around any closed loop.

• Linear combination cv + d w or L C jV j.

• Linearly dependent VI, ... , Vn.

A combination other than all Ci = 0 gives L Ci Vi = O.

• Markov matrix M.

All mij > 0 and each column sum is 1. Largest eigenvalue A = 1. If mij > 0, the columns of Mk approach the steady state eigenvector M s = s > O.

• Nullspace N (A)

= All solutions to Ax = O. Dimension n - r = (# columns) - rank.

• Pascal matrix

Ps = pascal(n) = the symmetric matrix with binomial entries (i1~;2). Ps = PL Pu all contain Pascal's triangle with det = 1 (see Pascal in the index).

• Random matrix rand(n) or randn(n).

MATLAB creates a matrix with random entries, uniformly distributed on [0 1] for rand and standard normal distribution for randn.

• Reduced row echelon form R = rref(A).

Pivots = 1; zeros above and below pivots; the r nonzero rows of R give a basis for the row space of A.

• Row picture of Ax = b.

Each equation gives a plane in Rn; the planes intersect at x.

• Row space C (AT) = all combinations of rows of A.

Column vectors by convention.

• Standard basis for Rn.

Columns of n by n identity matrix (written i ,j ,k in R3).

• Triangle inequality II u + v II < II u II + II v II.

For matrix norms II A + B II < II A II + II B II·
