Key Math Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
• Adjacency matrix of a graph.

Square matrix with aij = 1 when there is an edge from node i to node j; otherwise aij = O. A = AT when edges go both ways (undirected). Adjacency matrix of a graph. Square matrix with aij = 1 when there is an edge from node i to node j; otherwise aij = O. A = AT when edges go both ways (undirected).

• 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!

• Characteristic equation det(A - AI) = O.

The n roots are the eigenvalues of A.

• Column picture of Ax = b.

The vector b becomes a combination of the columns of A. The system is solvable only when b is in the column space C (A).

• Complex conjugate

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

• 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.

A sequence of steps (end of Chapter 9) to solve positive definite Ax = b by minimizing !x T Ax - x Tb over growing Krylov subspaces.

• Hilbert matrix hilb(n).

Entries HU = 1/(i + j -1) = Jd X i- 1 xj-1dx. Positive definite but extremely small Amin and large condition number: H is ill-conditioned.

• lA-II = 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.

• Left nullspace N (AT).

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

• 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.

• Network.

A directed graph that has constants Cl, ... , Cm associated with the edges.

• Nullspace matrix N.

The columns of N are the n - r special solutions to As = O.

• Outer product uv T

= column times row = rank one matrix.

• Particular solution x p.

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

• Pivot columns of A.

Columns that contain pivots after row reduction. These are not combinations of earlier columns. The pivot columns are a basis for the column space.

• Stiffness matrix

If x gives the movements of the nodes, K x gives the internal forces. K = ATe A where C has spring constants from Hooke's Law and Ax = stretching.

• Trace of A

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

• Tridiagonal matrix T: tij = 0 if Ii - j I > 1.

T- 1 has rank 1 above and below diagonal.
