Key Math Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
• Adjacency matrix of a graph.

Square matrix with aij = 1 when there is an edge from node i to node j; otherwise aij = O. A = AT when edges go both ways (undirected). Adjacency matrix of a graph. Square matrix with aij = 1 when there is an edge from node i to node j; otherwise aij = O. A = AT when edges go both ways (undirected).

• Associative Law (AB)C = A(BC).

Parentheses can be removed to leave ABC.

• Back substitution.

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

• 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!

• Block matrix.

A matrix can be partitioned into matrix blocks, by cuts between rows and/or between columns. Block multiplication ofAB is allowed if the block shapes permit.

• 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).

• Diagonalizable matrix A.

Must have n independent eigenvectors (in the columns of S; automatic with n different eigenvalues). Then S-I AS = A = eigenvalue matrix.

• 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

• 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.

• Hermitian matrix A H = AT = A.

Complex analog a j i = aU of a symmetric matrix.

• Hilbert matrix hilb(n).

Entries HU = 1/(i + j -1) = Jd X i- 1 xj-1dx. Positive definite but extremely small Amin and large condition number: H is ill-conditioned.

• Left inverse A+.

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

• Multiplication Ax

= Xl (column 1) + ... + xn(column n) = combination of columns.

• Nilpotent matrix N.

Some power of N is the zero matrix, N k = o. The only eigenvalue is A = 0 (repeated n times). Examples: triangular matrices with zero diagonal.

• Nullspace matrix N.

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

• Orthonormal vectors q 1 , ... , q n·

Dot products are q T q j = 0 if i =1= j and q T q i = 1. The matrix Q with these orthonormal columns has Q T Q = I. If m = n then Q T = Q -1 and q 1 ' ... , q n is an orthonormal basis for Rn : every v = L (v T q j )q j •

• 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.

• Saddle point of I(x}, ... ,xn ).

A point where the first derivatives of I are zero and the second derivative matrix (a2 II aXi ax j = Hessian matrix) is indefinite.

• Schur complement S, D - C A -} B.

Appears in block elimination on [~ g ].

• Special solutions to As = O.

One free variable is Si = 1, other free variables = o.
