Back substitution.
Upper triangular systems are solved in reverse order Xn to Xl.

CayleyHamilton Theorem.
peA) = det(A  AI) has peA) = zero matrix.

Cholesky factorization
A = CTC = (L.J]))(L.J]))T for positive definite A.

Cyclic shift
S. Permutation with S21 = 1, S32 = 1, ... , finally SIn = 1. Its eigenvalues are the nth roots e2lrik/n of 1; eigenvectors are columns of the Fourier matrix F.

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

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 matrix = Elementary matrix Eij.
The identity matrix with an extra eij in the i, j entry (i # j). Then Eij A subtracts eij times row j of A from row i.

Exponential eAt = I + At + (At)2 12! + ...
has derivative AeAt; eAt u(O) solves u' = Au.

GaussJordan method.
Invert A by row operations on [A I] to reach [I AI].

Indefinite matrix.
A symmetric matrix with eigenvalues of both signs (+ and  ).

lAII = l/lAI and IATI = IAI.
The big formula for det(A) has a sum of n! terms, the cofactor formula uses determinants of size n  1, volume of box = I det( A) I.

Left nullspace N (AT).
Nullspace of AT = "left nullspace" of A because y T A = OT.

Nullspace matrix N.
The columns of N are the n  r special solutions to As = O.

Nullspace N (A)
= All solutions to Ax = O. Dimension n  r = (# columns)  rank.

Permutation matrix P.
There are n! orders of 1, ... , n. The n! P 's have the rows of I in those orders. P A puts the rows of A in the same order. P is even or odd (det P = 1 or 1) based on the number of row exchanges to reach I.

Reflection matrix (Householder) Q = I 2uuT.
Unit vector u is reflected to Qu = u. All x intheplanemirroruTx = o have Qx = x. Notice QT = Q1 = 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!

Spectral Theorem A = QAQT.
Real symmetric A has real A'S and orthonormal q's.

Trace of A
