This expansive textbook survival guide covers the following chapters and their solutions.

Augmented matrix [A b].
Ax = b is solvable when b is in the column space of A; then [A b] has the same rank as A. Elimination on [A b] keeps equations correct.

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

Condition number
cond(A) = c(A) = IIAIlIIAIII = amaxlamin. In Ax = b, the relative change Ilox III Ilx II is less than cond(A) times the relative change Ilob III lib II· Condition numbers measure the sensitivity of the output to change in the input.

Determinant IAI = det(A).
Defined by det I = 1, sign reversal for row exchange, and linearity in each row. Then IAI = 0 when A is singular. Also IABI = IAIIBI and

Diagonal matrix D.
dij = 0 if i # j. Blockdiagonal: zero outside square blocks Du.

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.

Length II x II.
Square root of x T x (Pythagoras in n dimensions).

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).

Norm
IIA II. The ".e 2 norm" of A is the maximum ratio II Ax II/l1x II = O"max· Then II Ax II < IIAllllxll and IIABII < IIAIIIIBII and IIA + BII < IIAII + IIBII. Frobenius norm IIAII} = L La~. The.e 1 and.e oo norms are largest column and row sums of laij I.

Normal equation AT Ax = ATb.
Gives the least squares solution to Ax = b if A has full rank n (independent columns). The equation says that (columns of A)·(b  Ax) = o.

Normal matrix.
If N NT = NT N, then N has orthonormal (complex) eigenvectors.

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

Orthonormal vectors q 1 , ... , q n·
Dot products are q T q j = 0 if i =1= j and q T q i = 1. The matrix Q with these orthonormal columns has Q T Q = I. If m = n then Q T = Q 1 and q 1 ' ... , q n is an orthonormal basis for Rn : every v = L (v T q j )q j •

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).

Schur complement S, D  C A } B.
Appears in block elimination on [~ g ].

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

Skewsymmetric 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.

Spectrum of A = the set of eigenvalues {A I, ... , An}.
Spectral radius = max of IAi I.

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.
