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.

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.

Complete solution x = x p + Xn to Ax = b.
(Particular x p) + (x n in nullspace).

Echelon matrix U.
The first nonzero entry (the pivot) in each row comes in a later column than the pivot in the previous row. All zero rows come last.

Fibonacci numbers
0,1,1,2,3,5, ... satisfy Fn = Fnl + Fn 2 = (A7 A~)I()q A2). Growth rate Al = (1 + .J5) 12 is the largest eigenvalue of the Fibonacci matrix [ } A].

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

Graph G.
Set of n nodes connected pairwise by m edges. A complete graph has all n(n  1)/2 edges between nodes. A tree has only n  1 edges and no closed loops.

Hankel matrix H.
Constant along each antidiagonal; hij depends on i + j.

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

lAII = l/lAI and IATI = IAI.
The big formula for det(A) has a sum of n! terms, the cofactor formula uses determinants of size n  1, volume of box = I det( A) I.

Least squares solution X.
The vector x that minimizes the error lie 112 solves AT Ax = ATb. Then e = b  Ax is orthogonal to all columns of A.

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).

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

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

Polar decomposition A = Q H.
Orthogonal Q times positive (semi)definite H.

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.

Spectral Theorem A = QAQT.
Real symmetric A has real A'S and orthonormal q's.

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

Trace of A
= sum of diagonal entries = sum of eigenvalues of A. Tr AB = Tr BA.

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