Augmented matrix [A b].
Ax = b is solvable when b is in the column space of A; then [A b] has the same rank as A. Elimination on [A b] keeps equations correct.

CayleyHamilton Theorem.
peA) = det(A  AI) has peA) = zero matrix.

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.

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

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

Dot product = Inner product x T y = XI Y 1 + ... + Xn Yn.
Complex dot product is x T Y . Perpendicular vectors have x T y = O. (AB)ij = (row i of A)T(column j of B).

Free variable Xi.
Column i has no pivot in elimination. We can give the n  r free variables any values, then Ax = b determines the r pivot variables (if solvable!).

Hypercube matrix pl.
Row n + 1 counts corners, edges, faces, ... of a cube in Rn.

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.

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

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.

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.

Reflection matrix (Householder) Q = I 2uuT.
Unit vector u is reflected to Qu = u. All x intheplanemirroruTx = o have Qx = x. Notice QT = Q1 = Q.

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

Row picture of Ax = b.
Each equation gives a plane in Rn; the planes intersect at x.

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

Sum V + W of subs paces.
Space of all (v in V) + (w in W). Direct sum: V n W = to}.

Vector v in Rn.
Sequence of n real numbers v = (VI, ... , Vn) = point in Rn.
