Affine transformation
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. Blockdiagonal: zero outside square blocks Du.

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

Elimination.
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.

GramSchmidt 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)ยท(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 = MI AM has the same eigenvalues as A.

Solvable system Ax = b.
The right side b is in the column space of A.

Spanning set.
Combinations of VI, ... ,Vm fill the space. The columns of A span C (A)!

Toeplitz matrix.
Constant down each diagonal = timeinvariant (shiftinvariant) filter.

Volume of box.
The rows (or the columns) of A generate a box with volume I det(A) I.

Wavelets Wjk(t).
Stretch and shift the time axis to create Wjk(t) = woo(2j t  k).
