Augmented matrix [A b].
Ax = b is solvable when b is in the column space of A; then [A b] has the same rank as A. Elimination on [A b] keeps equations correct.

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.)

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.

Factorization
A = L U. If elimination takes A to U without row exchanges, then the lower triangular L with multipliers eij (and eii = 1) brings U back to A.

Full column rank r = n.
Independent columns, N(A) = {O}, no free variables.

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.

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.

Hessenberg matrix H.
Triangular matrix with one extra nonzero adjacent diagonal.

Linear combination cv + d w or L C jV j.
Vector addition and scalar multiplication.

Markov matrix M.
All mij > 0 and each column sum is 1. Largest eigenvalue A = 1. If mij > 0, the columns of Mk approach the steady state eigenvector M s = s > O.

Partial pivoting.
In each column, choose the largest available pivot to control roundoff; all multipliers have leij I < 1. See condition number.

Pseudoinverse A+ (MoorePenrose inverse).
The n by m matrix that "inverts" A from column space back to row space, with N(A+) = N(AT). A+ A and AA+ are the projection matrices onto the row space and column space. Rank(A +) = rank(A).

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

Reduced row echelon form R = rref(A).
Pivots = 1; zeros above and below pivots; the r nonzero rows of R give a basis for the row space of A.

Row picture of Ax = b.
Each equation gives a plane in Rn; the planes intersect at x.

Row space C (AT) = all combinations of rows of A.
Column vectors by convention.

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.

Semidefinite matrix A.
(Positive) semidefinite: all x T Ax > 0, all A > 0; A = any RT R.

Singular Value Decomposition
(SVD) A = U:E VT = (orthogonal) ( diag)( orthogonal) First r columns of U and V are orthonormal bases of C (A) and C (AT), AVi = O'iUi with singular value O'i > O. Last columns are orthonormal bases of nullspaces.

Symmetric factorizations A = LDLT and A = QAQT.
Signs in A = signs in D.
