Cholesky factorization
A = CTC = (L.J]))(L.J]))T for positive definite A.

Covariance matrix:E.
When random variables Xi have mean = average value = 0, their covariances "'£ ij are the averages of XiX j. With means Xi, the matrix :E = mean of (x  x) (x  x) T is positive (semi)definite; :E is diagonal if the Xi are independent.

Dot product = Inner product x T y = XI Y 1 + ... + Xn Yn.
Complex dot product is x T Y . Perpendicular vectors have x T y = O. (AB)ij = (row i of A)T(column j of B).

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.

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

Hermitian matrix A H = AT = A.
Complex analog a j i = aU of a symmetric matrix.

Identity matrix I (or In).
Diagonal entries = 1, offdiagonal entries = 0.

Kirchhoff's Laws.
Current Law: net current (in minus out) is zero at each node. Voltage Law: Potential differences (voltage drops) add to zero around any closed loop.

Left nullspace N (AT).
Nullspace of AT = "left nullspace" of A because y T A = OT.

Length II x II.
Square root of x T x (Pythagoras in n dimensions).

Multiplication Ax
= Xl (column 1) + ... + xn(column n) = combination of columns.

Network.
A directed graph that has constants Cl, ... , Cm associated with the edges.

Orthogonal subspaces.
Every v in V is orthogonal to every w in W.

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

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

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

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!

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

Vector addition.
v + w = (VI + WI, ... , Vn + Wn ) = diagonal of parallelogram.
