Tv = Av + Vo = linear transformation plus shift.
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].
Diagonal matrix D.
dij = 0 if i #- j. Block-diagonal: zero outside square blocks Du.
A(B + C) = AB + AC. Add then multiply, or mUltiply then add.
A sequence of row operations that reduces A to an upper triangular U or to the reduced form R = rref(A). Then A = LU with multipliers eO in L, or P A = L U with row exchanges in P, or E A = R with an invertible E.
Gram-Schmidt orthogonalization A = QR.
Independent columns in A, orthonormal columns in Q. Each column q j of Q is a combination of the first j columns of A (and conversely, so R is upper triangular). Convention: diag(R) > o.
Hermitian matrix A H = AT = A.
Complex analog a j i = aU of a symmetric matrix.
Left nullspace N (AT).
Nullspace of AT = "left nullspace" of A because y T A = OT.
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)·(b - Ax) = o.
Projection p = a(aTblaTa) onto the line through a.
P = aaT laTa has rank l.
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).
Semidefinite matrix A.
(Positive) semidefinite: all x T Ax > 0, all A > 0; A = any RT R.
Similar matrices A and B.
Every B = M-I AM has the same eigenvalues as A.
Solvable system Ax = b.
The right side b is in the column space of A.
Combinations of VI, ... ,Vm fill the space. The columns of A span C (A)!
Constant down each diagonal = time-invariant (shift-invariant) filter.
Volume of box.
The rows (or the columns) of A generate a box with volume I det(A) I.
Stretch and shift the time axis to create Wjk(t) = woo(2j t - k).
