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

Cofactor Cij.
Remove row i and column j; multiply the determinant by (I)i + j •

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

Fast Fourier Transform (FFT).
A factorization of the Fourier matrix Fn into e = log2 n matrices Si times a permutation. Each Si needs only nl2 multiplications, so Fnx and Fn1c can be computed with ne/2 multiplications. Revolutionary.

Fibonacci numbers
0,1,1,2,3,5, ... satisfy Fn = Fnl + Fn 2 = (A7 A~)I()q A2). Growth rate Al = (1 + .J5) 12 is the largest eigenvalue of the Fibonacci matrix [ } A].

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

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 transformation T.
Each vector V in the input space transforms to T (v) in the output space, and linearity requires T(cv + dw) = c T(v) + d T(w). Examples: Matrix multiplication A v, differentiation and integration in function space.

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.

Nullspace N (A)
= All solutions to Ax = O. Dimension n  r = (# columns)  rank.

Pivot columns of A.
Columns that contain pivots after row reduction. These are not combinations of earlier columns. The pivot columns are a basis for the column space.

Positive definite matrix A.
Symmetric matrix with positive eigenvalues and positive pivots. Definition: x T Ax > 0 unless x = O. Then A = LDLT with diag(D» O.

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

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

Special solutions to As = O.
One free variable is Si = 1, other free variables = o.

Spectrum of A = the set of eigenvalues {A I, ... , An}.
Spectral radius = max of IAi I.

Subspace S of V.
Any vector space inside V, including V and Z = {zero vector only}.

Triangle inequality II u + v II < II u II + II v II.
For matrix norms II A + B II < II A II + II B II·

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.
