Key Math Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
• 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!

• Big formula for n by n determinants.

Det(A) is a sum of n! terms. For each term: Multiply one entry from each row and column of A: rows in order 1, ... , nand column order given by a permutation P. Each of the n! P 's has a + or - sign.

• Cofactor Cij.

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

• 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.

• Free columns of A.

Columns without pivots; these are combinations of earlier columns.

• Kronecker product (tensor product) A ® B.

Blocks aij B, eigenvalues Ap(A)Aq(B).

• Left nullspace N (AT).

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

• Length II x II.

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

• Linearly dependent VI, ... , Vn.

A combination other than all Ci = 0 gives L Ci Vi = O.

• Lucas numbers

Ln = 2,J, 3, 4, ... satisfy Ln = L n- l +Ln- 2 = A1 +A~, with AI, A2 = (1 ± -/5)/2 from the Fibonacci matrix U~]' Compare Lo = 2 with Fo = O.

• 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.

• Partial pivoting.

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

• 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).

• Rotation matrix

R = [~ CS ] rotates the plane by () and R- 1 = RT rotates back by -(). Eigenvalues are eiO and e-iO , eigenvectors are (1, ±i). c, s = cos (), sin ().

• Schur complement S, D - C A -} B.

Appears in block elimination on [~ g ].

• 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!

• Singular matrix A.

A square matrix that has no inverse: det(A) = o.

• 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}.

• 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.
