Key Math Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
• Affine transformation

Tv = Av + Vo = linear transformation plus shift.

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.

• Covariance matrix:E.

When random variables Xi have mean = average value = 0, their covariances "'£ ij are the averages of XiX j. With means Xi, the matrix :E = mean of (x - x) (x - x) T is positive (semi)definite; :E is diagonal if the Xi are independent.

• Cramer's Rule for Ax = b.

B j has b replacing column j of A; x j = det B j I det A

• Cross product u xv in R3:

Vector perpendicular to u and v, length Ilullllvlll sin el = area of parallelogram, u x v = "determinant" of [i j k; UI U2 U3; VI V2 V3].

• Diagonalization

A = S-1 AS. A = eigenvalue matrix and S = eigenvector matrix of A. A must have n independent eigenvectors to make S invertible. All Ak = SA k S-I.

• 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.

• Elimination matrix = Elementary matrix Eij.

The identity matrix with an extra -eij in the i, j entry (i #- j). Then Eij A subtracts eij times row j of A from row i.

• Identity matrix I (or In).

Diagonal entries = 1, off-diagonal entries = 0.

• Jordan form 1 = M- 1 AM.

If A has s independent eigenvectors, its "generalized" eigenvector matrix M gives 1 = diag(lt, ... , 1s). The block his Akh +Nk where Nk has 1 's on diagonall. Each block has one eigenvalue Ak and one eigenvector.

• 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.

• Multiplier eij.

The pivot row j is multiplied by eij and subtracted from row i to eliminate the i, j entry: eij = (entry to eliminate) / (jth pivot).

• Orthogonal matrix Q.

Square matrix with orthonormal columns, so QT = Q-l. Preserves length and angles, IIQxll = IIxll and (QX)T(Qy) = xTy. AlllAI = 1, with orthogonal eigenvectors. Examples: Rotation, reflection, permutation.

• Plane (or hyperplane) in Rn.

Vectors x with aT x = O. Plane is perpendicular to a =1= O.

• Rotation matrix

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

• Semidefinite matrix A.

(Positive) semidefinite: all x T Ax > 0, all A > 0; A = any RT R.

• Similar matrices A and B.

Every B = M-I AM has the same eigenvalues as A.

• Singular matrix A.

A square matrix that has no inverse: det(A) = o.

• Symmetric matrix A.

The transpose is AT = A, and aU = a ji. A-I is also symmetric.
