Key Math Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
• Basis for V.

Independent vectors VI, ... , v d whose linear combinations give each vector in V as v = CIVI + ... + CdVd. V has many bases, each basis gives unique c's. A vector space has many bases!

• Change of basis matrix M.

The old basis vectors v j are combinations L mij Wi of the new basis vectors. The coordinates of CI VI + ... + cnvn = dl wI + ... + dn Wn are related by d = M c. (For n = 2 set VI = mll WI +m21 W2, V2 = m12WI +m22w2.)

• Characteristic equation det(A - AI) = O.

The n roots are the eigenvalues of A.

• 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).

• Complete solution x = x p + Xn to Ax = b.

(Particular x p) + (x n in nullspace).

• Cross product u xv in R3:

Vector perpendicular to u and v, length Ilullllvlll sin el = area of parallelogram, u x v = "determinant" of [i j k; UI U2 U3; VI V2 V3].

• Dimension of vector space

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

• Distributive Law

A(B + C) = AB + AC. Add then multiply, or mUltiply then add.

• 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.

• Ellipse (or ellipsoid) x T Ax = 1.

A must be positive definite; the axes of the ellipse are eigenvectors of A, with lengths 1/.JI. (For IIx II = 1 the vectors y = Ax lie on the ellipse IIA-1 yll2 = Y T(AAT)-1 Y = 1 displayed by eigshow; axis lengths ad

• Fast Fourier Transform (FFT).

A factorization of the Fourier matrix Fn into e = log2 n matrices Si times a permutation. Each Si needs only nl2 multiplications, so Fnx and Fn-1c can be computed with ne/2 multiplications. Revolutionary.

• Free columns of A.

Columns without pivots; these are combinations of earlier columns.

• Hessenberg matrix H.

Triangular matrix with one extra nonzero adjacent diagonal.

• Iterative method.

A sequence of steps intended to approach the desired solution.

• Left inverse A+.

If A has full column rank n, then A+ = (AT A)-I AT has A+ A = In.

• Left nullspace N (AT).

Nullspace of AT = "left nullspace" of A because y T A = OT.

• Norm

IIA II. The ".e 2 norm" of A is the maximum ratio II Ax II/l1x II = O"max· Then II Ax II < IIAllllxll and IIABII < IIAIIIIBII and IIA + BII < IIAII + IIBII. Frobenius norm IIAII} = L La~. The.e 1 and.e oo norms are largest column and row sums of laij I.

• Similar matrices A and B.

Every B = M-I AM has the same eigenvalues as A.

• Singular matrix A.

A square matrix that has no inverse: det(A) = o.

• Symmetric factorizations A = LDLT and A = QAQT.

Signs in A = signs in D.
