Back substitution.
Upper triangular systems are solved in reverse order Xn to Xl.

Characteristic equation det(A  AI) = O.
The n roots are the eigenvalues of A.

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

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

Companion matrix.
Put CI, ... ,Cn in row n and put n  1 ones just above the main diagonal. Then det(A  AI) = ±(CI + c2A + C3A 2 + .•. + cnA nl  An).

Condition number
cond(A) = c(A) = IIAIlIIAIII = 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.

Diagonalizable matrix A.
Must have n independent eigenvectors (in the columns of S; automatic with n different eigenvalues). Then SI AS = A = eigenvalue matrix.

Full column rank r = n.
Independent columns, N(A) = {O}, no free variables.

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).

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 matrix.
If N NT = NT N, then N has orthonormal (complex) eigenvectors.

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

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.

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

Saddle point of I(x}, ... ,xn ).
A point where the first derivatives of I are zero and the second derivative matrix (a2 II aXi ax j = Hessian matrix) is indefinite.

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

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 Value Decomposition
(SVD) A = U:E VT = (orthogonal) ( diag)( orthogonal) First r columns of U and V are orthonormal bases of C (A) and C (AT), AVi = O'iUi with singular value O'i > O. Last columns are orthonormal bases of nullspaces.

Trace of A
