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.

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

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

Fundamental Theorem.
The nullspace N (A) and row space C (AT) are orthogonal complements in Rn(perpendicular from Ax = 0 with dimensions rand n  r). Applied to AT, the column space C(A) is the orthogonal complement of N(AT) in Rm.

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.

Independent vectors VI, .. " vk.
No combination cl VI + ... + qVk = zero vector unless all ci = O. If the v's are the columns of A, the only solution to Ax = 0 is x = o.

Iterative method.
A sequence of steps intended to approach the desired solution.

Matrix multiplication AB.
The i, j entry of AB is (row i of A)·(column j of B) = L aikbkj. By columns: Column j of AB = A times column j of B. By rows: row i of A multiplies B. Columns times rows: AB = sum of (column k)(row k). All these equivalent definitions come from the rule that A B times x equals A times B x .

Nilpotent matrix N.
Some power of N is the zero matrix, N k = o. The only eigenvalue is A = 0 (repeated n times). Examples: triangular matrices with zero diagonal.

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)·(b  Ax) = o.

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

Pascal matrix
Ps = pascal(n) = the symmetric matrix with binomial entries (i1~;2). Ps = PL Pu all contain Pascal's triangle with det = 1 (see Pascal in the index).

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

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

Rank one matrix A = uvT f=. O.
Column and row spaces = lines cu and cv.

Schur complement S, D  C A } B.
Appears in block elimination on [~ g ].

Similar matrices A and B.
Every B = MI AM has the same eigenvalues as A.

Spanning set.
Combinations of VI, ... ,Vm fill the space. The columns of A span C (A)!

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

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.
