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

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

Full row rank r = m.
Independent rows, at least one solution to Ax = b, column space is all of Rm. Full rank means full column rank or full row rank.

GramSchmidt orthogonalization A = QR.
Independent columns in A, orthonormal columns in Q. Each column q j of Q is a combination of the first j columns of A (and conversely, so R is upper triangular). Convention: diag(R) > o.

Identity matrix I (or In).
Diagonal entries = 1, offdiagonal entries = 0.

Inverse matrix AI.
Square matrix with AI A = I and AAl = I. No inverse if det A = 0 and rank(A) < n and Ax = 0 for a nonzero vector x. The inverses of AB and AT are B1 AI and (AI)T. Cofactor formula (Al)ij = Cji! detA.

Kirchhoff's Laws.
Current Law: net current (in minus out) is zero at each node. Voltage Law: Potential differences (voltage drops) add to zero around any closed loop.

Krylov subspace Kj(A, b).
The subspace spanned by b, Ab, ... , AjIb. Numerical methods approximate A I b by x j with residual b  Ax j in this subspace. A good basis for K j requires only multiplication by A at each step.

Left nullspace N (AT).
Nullspace of AT = "left nullspace" of A because y T A = OT.

Linear transformation T.
Each vector V in the input space transforms to T (v) in the output space, and linearity requires T(cv + dw) = c T(v) + d T(w). Examples: Matrix multiplication A v, differentiation and integration in function space.

Markov matrix M.
All mij > 0 and each column sum is 1. Largest eigenvalue A = 1. If mij > 0, the columns of Mk approach the steady state eigenvector M s = s > O.

Matrix multiplication AB.
The i, j entry of AB is (row i of A)·(column j of B) = L aikbkj. By columns: Column j of AB = A times column j of B. By rows: row i of A multiplies B. Columns times rows: AB = sum of (column k)(row k). All these equivalent definitions come from the rule that A B times x equals A times B x .

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.

Pivot.
The diagonal entry (first nonzero) at the time when a row is used in elimination.

Rayleigh quotient q (x) = X T Ax I x T x for symmetric A: Amin < q (x) < Amax.
Those extremes are reached at the eigenvectors x for Amin(A) and Amax(A).

Schwarz inequality
Iv·wl < IIvll IIwll.Then IvTAwl2 < (vT Av)(wT Aw) for pos def A.

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!

Solvable system Ax = b.
The right side b is in the column space of A.

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

Unitary matrix UH = U T = UI.
Orthonormal columns (complex analog of Q).
