Key Math Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
• 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.

• Distributive Law

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

• Fibonacci numbers

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

• Full column rank r = n.

Independent columns, N(A) = {O}, no free variables.

• Graph G.

Set of n nodes connected pairwise by m edges. A complete graph has all n(n - 1)/2 edges between nodes. A tree has only n - 1 edges and no closed loops.

• Identity matrix I (or In).

Diagonal entries = 1, off-diagonal entries = 0.

• Incidence matrix of a directed graph.

The m by n edge-node incidence matrix has a row for each edge (node i to node j), with entries -1 and 1 in columns i and j .

• Inverse matrix A-I.

Square matrix with A-I A = I and AA-l = I. No inverse if det A = 0 and rank(A) < n and Ax = 0 for a nonzero vector x. The inverses of AB and AT are B-1 A-I and (A-I)T. Cofactor formula (A-l)ij = Cji! detA.

• Iterative method.

A sequence of steps intended to approach the desired solution.

• 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.

• Normal matrix.

If N NT = NT N, then N has orthonormal (complex) eigenvectors.

• Nullspace N (A)

= All solutions to Ax = O. Dimension n - r = (# columns) - rank.

• Projection p = a(aTblaTa) onto the line through a.

P = aaT laTa has rank l.

• Schwarz inequality

Iv·wl < IIvll IIwll.Then IvTAwl2 < (vT Av)(wT Aw) for pos def A.

• 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.

• Spectral Theorem A = QAQT.

Real symmetric A has real A'S and orthonormal q's.

• Trace of A

= sum of diagonal entries = sum of eigenvalues of A. Tr AB = Tr BA.

• Transpose matrix AT.

Entries AL = Ajj. AT is n by In, AT A is square, symmetric, positive semidefinite. The transposes of AB and A-I are BT AT and (AT)-I.

• Unitary matrix UH = U T = U-I.

Orthonormal columns (complex analog of Q).
