Associative Law (AB)C = A(BC).
Parentheses can be removed to leave ABC.

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

Column space C (A) =
space of all combinations of the columns of A.

Conjugate Gradient Method.
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.

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

Factorization
A = L U. If elimination takes A to U without row exchanges, then the lower triangular L with multipliers eij (and eii = 1) brings U back to A.

Four Fundamental Subspaces C (A), N (A), C (AT), N (AT).
Use AT for complex A.

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.

Hilbert matrix hilb(n).
Entries HU = 1/(i + j 1) = Jd X i 1 xj1dx. Positive definite but extremely small Amin and large condition number: H is illconditioned.

Independent vectors VI, .. " vk.
No combination cl VI + ... + qVk = zero vector unless all ci = O. If the v's are the columns of A, the only solution to Ax = 0 is x = o.

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).

Multiplicities AM and G M.
The algebraic multiplicity A M of A is the number of times A appears as a root of det(A  AI) = O. The geometric multiplicity GM is the number of independent eigenvectors for A (= dimension of the eigenspace).

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.

Projection matrix P onto subspace S.
Projection p = P b is the closest point to b in S, error e = b  Pb is perpendicularto S. p 2 = P = pT, eigenvalues are 1 or 0, eigenvectors are in S or S...L. If columns of A = basis for S then P = A (AT A) 1 AT.

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.

Spanning set.
Combinations of VI, ... ,Vm fill the space. The columns of A span C (A)!

Symmetric factorizations A = LDLT and A = QAQT.
Signs in A = signs in D.

Tridiagonal matrix T: tij = 0 if Ii  j I > 1.
T 1 has rank 1 above and below diagonal.

Vandermonde matrix V.
V c = b gives coefficients of p(x) = Co + ... + Cn_IXn 1 with P(Xi) = bi. Vij = (Xi)jI and det V = product of (Xk  Xi) for k > i.

Wavelets Wjk(t).
Stretch and shift the time axis to create Wjk(t) = woo(2j t  k).
