This textbook survival guide was created for the textbook: Algebra 2, Student Edition (MERRILL ALGEBRA 2), edition: 1. Algebra 2, Student Edition (MERRILL ALGEBRA 2) was written by and is associated to the ISBN: 9780078738302. Since 74 problems in chapter 6-6: Solving Polynomial Equations have been answered, more than 55982 students have viewed full step-by-step solutions from this chapter. This expansive textbook survival guide covers the following chapters and their solutions.

Key Math Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • Cholesky factorization

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

  • Column space C (A) =

    space of all combinations of the columns of A.

  • 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 n-l - An).

  • Complex conjugate

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

  • Dimension of vector space

    dim(V) = number of vectors in any basis for V.

  • 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.

  • Full column rank r = n.

    Independent columns, N(A) = {O}, no free variables.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Nullspace N (A)

    = All solutions to Ax = O. Dimension n - r = (# columns) - rank.

  • Particular solution x p.

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

  • Pascal matrix

    Ps = pascal(n) = the symmetric matrix with binomial entries (i1~;2). Ps = PL Pu all contain Pascal's triangle with det = 1 (see Pascal in the index).

  • Permutation matrix P.

    There are n! orders of 1, ... , n. The n! P 's have the rows of I in those orders. P A puts the rows of A in the same order. P is even or odd (det P = 1 or -1) based on the number of row exchanges to reach I.

  • Rank one matrix A = uvT f=. O.

    Column and row spaces = lines cu and cv.

  • 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.

  • Row space C (AT) = all combinations of rows of A.

    Column vectors by convention.

  • 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!

  • Skew-symmetric matrix K.

    The transpose is -K, since Kij = -Kji. Eigenvalues are pure imaginary, eigenvectors are orthogonal, eKt is an orthogonal matrix.

  • Spectral Theorem A = QAQT.

    Real symmetric A has real A'S and orthonormal q's.

  • Toeplitz matrix.

    Constant down each diagonal = time-invariant (shift-invariant) filter.
