Key Math Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
• Cholesky factorization

A = CTC = (L.J]))(L.J]))T for positive definite A.

• 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.

• Condition number

cond(A) = c(A) = IIAIlIIA-III = amaxlamin. In Ax = b, the relative change Ilox III Ilx II is less than cond(A) times the relative change Ilob III lib II· Condition numbers measure the sensitivity of the output to change in the input.

• Hermitian matrix A H = AT = A.

Complex analog a j i = aU of a symmetric matrix.

• Identity matrix I (or In).

Diagonal entries = 1, off-diagonal entries = 0.

• Indefinite matrix.

A symmetric matrix with eigenvalues of both signs (+ and - ).

• Kronecker product (tensor product) A ® B.

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

• Krylov subspace Kj(A, b).

The subspace spanned by b, Ab, ... , Aj-Ib. 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.

• 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 .

• 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.

• Particular solution x p.

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

• Pseudoinverse A+ (Moore-Penrose inverse).

The n by m matrix that "inverts" A from column space back to row space, with N(A+) = N(AT). A+ A and AA+ are the projection matrices onto the row space and column space. Rank(A +) = rank(A).

• 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.

• Reduced row echelon form R = rref(A).

Pivots = 1; zeros above and below pivots; the r nonzero rows of R give a basis for the row space of A.

• Right inverse A+.

If A has full row rank m, then A+ = AT(AAT)-l has AA+ = 1m.

• Schur complement S, D - C A -} B.

Appears in block elimination on [~ g ].

• Semidefinite matrix A.

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

• Singular matrix A.

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

• Subspace S of V.

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

• Symmetric matrix A.

The transpose is AT = A, and aU = a ji. A-I is also symmetric.
