Key Math Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
• Block matrix.

A matrix can be partitioned into matrix blocks, by cuts between rows and/or between columns. Block multiplication ofAB is allowed if the block shapes permit.

• Change of basis matrix M.

The old basis vectors v j are combinations L mij Wi of the new basis vectors. The coordinates of CI VI + ... + cnvn = dl wI + ... + dn Wn are related by d = M c. (For n = 2 set VI = mll WI +m21 W2, V2 = m12WI +m22w2.)

• 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).

• 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.

• Kronecker product (tensor product) A ® B.

Blocks aij B, eigenvalues Ap(A)Aq(B).

• Least squares solution X.

The vector x that minimizes the error lie 112 solves AT Ax = ATb. Then e = b - Ax is orthogonal to all columns of A.

• Left inverse A+.

If A has full column rank n, then A+ = (AT A)-I AT has A+ A = In.

• 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).

• Outer product uv T

= column times row = rank one matrix.

• Pseudoinverse A+ (Moore-Penrose inverse).

The n by m matrix that "inverts" A from column space back to row space, with N(A+) = N(AT). A+ A and AA+ are the projection matrices onto the row space and column space. Rank(A +) = rank(A).

• Reflection matrix (Householder) Q = I -2uuT.

Unit vector u is reflected to Qu = -u. All x intheplanemirroruTx = o have Qx = x. Notice QT = Q-1 = Q.

• Saddle point of I(x}, ... ,xn ).

A point where the first derivatives of I are zero and the second derivative matrix (a2 II aXi ax j = Hessian matrix) is indefinite.

• Spectral Theorem A = QAQT.

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

• Standard basis for Rn.

Columns of n by n identity matrix (written i ,j ,k in R3).

• Sum V + W of subs paces.

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

• Transpose matrix AT.

Entries AL = Ajj. AT is n by In, AT A is square, symmetric, positive semidefinite. The transposes of AB and A-I are BT AT and (AT)-I.

• Triangle inequality II u + v II < II u II + II v II.

For matrix norms II A + B II < II A II + II B II·

• Vector space V.

Set of vectors such that all combinations cv + d w remain within V. Eight required rules are given in Section 3.1 for scalars c, d and vectors v, w.

• Wavelets Wjk(t).

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