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.)

Diagonalization
A = S1 AS. A = eigenvalue matrix and S = eigenvector matrix of A. A must have n independent eigenvectors to make S invertible. All Ak = SA k SI.

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

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!).

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

Hankel matrix H.
Constant along each antidiagonal; hij depends on i + j.

Independent vectors VI, .. " vk.
No combination cl VI + ... + qVk = zero vector unless all ci = O. If the v's are the columns of A, the only solution to Ax = 0 is x = o.

Iterative method.
A sequence of steps intended to approach the desired solution.

Multiplicities AM and G M.
The algebraic multiplicity A M of A is the number of times A appears as a root of det(A  AI) = O. The geometric multiplicity GM is the number of independent eigenvectors for A (= dimension of the eigenspace).

Normal equation AT Ax = ATb.
Gives the least squares solution to Ax = b if A has full rank n (independent columns). The equation says that (columns of A)ยท(b  Ax) = o.

Particular solution x p.
Any solution to Ax = b; often x p has free variables = o.

Projection matrix P onto subspace S.
Projection p = P b is the closest point to b in S, error e = b  Pb is perpendicularto S. p 2 = P = pT, eigenvalues are 1 or 0, eigenvectors are in S or S...L. If columns of A = basis for S then P = A (AT A) 1 AT.

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.

Rank r (A)
= number of pivots = dimension of column space = dimension of row space.

Rayleigh quotient q (x) = X T Ax I x T x for symmetric A: Amin < q (x) < Amax.
Those extremes are reached at the eigenvectors x for Amin(A) and Amax(A).

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.

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}.

Vector addition.
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.
