Key Math Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
• Adjacency matrix of a graph.

Square matrix with aij = 1 when there is an edge from node i to node j; otherwise aij = O. A = AT when edges go both ways (undirected). Adjacency matrix of a graph. Square matrix with aij = 1 when there is an edge from node i to node j; otherwise aij = O. A = AT when edges go both ways (undirected).

• Associative Law (AB)C = A(BC).

Parentheses can be removed to leave ABC.

• Basis for V.

Independent vectors VI, ... , v d whose linear combinations give each vector in V as v = CIVI + ... + CdVd. V has many bases, each basis gives unique c's. A vector space has many bases!

• Complete solution x = x p + Xn to Ax = b.

(Particular x p) + (x n in nullspace).

• Dimension of vector space

dim(V) = number of vectors in any basis for V.

• Distributive Law

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

• Free variable Xi.

Column i has no pivot in elimination. We can give the n - r free variables any values, then Ax = b determines the r pivot variables (if solvable!).

• Left nullspace N (AT).

Nullspace of AT = "left nullspace" of A because y T A = OT.

• Minimal polynomial of A.

The lowest degree polynomial with meA) = zero matrix. This is peA) = det(A - AI) if no eigenvalues are repeated; always meA) divides peA).

• Multiplier eij.

The pivot row j is multiplied by eij and subtracted from row i to eliminate the i, j entry: eij = (entry to eliminate) / (jth pivot).

• Network.

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

• Orthogonal matrix Q.

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

• Orthogonal subspaces.

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

• Particular solution x p.

Any solution to Ax = b; often x p has free variables = o.

• Polar decomposition A = Q H.

Orthogonal Q times positive (semi)definite H.

• Projection matrix P onto subspace S.

Projection p = P b is the closest point to b in S, error e = b - Pb is perpendicularto S. p 2 = P = pT, eigenvalues are 1 or 0, eigenvectors are in S or S...L. If columns of A = basis for S then P = A (AT A) -1 AT.

• Rayleigh quotient q (x) = X T Ax I x T x for symmetric A: Amin < q (x) < Amax.

Those extremes are reached at the eigenvectors x for Amin(A) and Amax(A).

• 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.

• Subspace S of V.

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

• Unitary matrix UH = U T = U-I.

Orthonormal columns (complex analog of Q).
