Circulant matrix C.
Constant diagonals wrap around as in cyclic shift S. Every circulant is Col + CIS + ... + Cn_lSn  l . Cx = convolution c * x. Eigenvectors in F.

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

Complex conjugate
z = a  ib for any complex number z = a + ib. Then zz = Iz12.

Diagonalization
A = S1 AS. A = eigenvalue matrix and S = eigenvector matrix of A. A must have n independent eigenvectors to make S invertible. All Ak = SA k SI.

Free columns of A.
Columns without pivots; these are combinations of earlier columns.

Hessenberg matrix H.
Triangular matrix with one extra nonzero adjacent diagonal.

Hilbert matrix hilb(n).
Entries HU = 1/(i + j 1) = Jd X i 1 xj1dx. Positive definite but extremely small Amin and large condition number: H is illconditioned.

Krylov subspace Kj(A, b).
The subspace spanned by b, Ab, ... , AjIb. Numerical methods approximate A I b by x j with residual b  Ax j in this subspace. A good basis for K j requires only multiplication by A at each step.

Multiplicities AM and G M.
The algebraic multiplicity A M of A is the number of times A appears as a root of det(A  AI) = O. The geometric multiplicity GM is the number of independent eigenvectors for A (= dimension of the eigenspace).

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).

Norm
IIA II. The ".e 2 norm" of A is the maximum ratio II Ax II/l1x II = O"max· Then II Ax II < IIAllllxll and IIABII < IIAIIIIBII and IIA + BII < IIAII + IIBII. Frobenius norm IIAII} = L La~. The.e 1 and.e oo norms are largest column and row sums of laij I.

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.

Pivot.
The diagonal entry (first nonzero) at the time when a row is used in elimination.

Projection p = a(aTblaTa) onto the line through a.
P = aaT laTa has rank l.

Semidefinite matrix A.
(Positive) semidefinite: all x T Ax > 0, all A > 0; A = any RT R.

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.

Stiffness matrix
If x gives the movements of the nodes, K x gives the internal forces. K = ATe A where C has spring constants from Hooke's Law and Ax = stretching.

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.
