Column space C (A) =
space of all combinations of the columns of A.

Conjugate Gradient Method.
A sequence of steps (end of Chapter 9) to solve positive definite Ax = b by minimizing !x T Ax  x Tb over growing Krylov subspaces.

Cramer's Rule for Ax = b.
B j has b replacing column j of A; x j = det B j I det A

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.

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.

Four Fundamental Subspaces C (A), N (A), C (AT), N (AT).
Use AT for complex A.

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

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.

Orthogonal matrix Q.
Square matrix with orthonormal columns, so QT = Ql. Preserves length and angles, IIQxll = IIxll and (QX)T(Qy) = xTy. AlllAI = 1, with orthogonal eigenvectors. Examples: Rotation, reflection, permutation.

Outer product uv T
= column times row = rank one matrix.

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

Plane (or hyperplane) in Rn.
Vectors x with aT x = O. Plane is perpendicular to a =1= O.

Polar decomposition A = Q H.
Orthogonal Q times positive (semi)definite H.

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.

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.

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

Standard basis for Rn.
Columns of n by n identity matrix (written i ,j ,k in R3).

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

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

Unitary matrix UH = U T = UI.
Orthonormal columns (complex analog of Q).
