Affine transformation
Tv = Av + Vo = linear transformation plus shift.

Basis for V.
Independent vectors VI, ... , v d whose linear combinations give each vector in V as v = CIVI + ... + CdVd. V has many bases, each basis gives unique c's. A vector space has many bases!

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).

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 nl  An).

Conjugate Gradient Method.
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.

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

Dot product = Inner product x T y = XI Y 1 + ... + Xn Yn.
Complex dot product is x T Y . Perpendicular vectors have x T y = O. (AB)ij = (row i of A)T(column j of B).

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.

Free variable Xi.
Column i has no pivot in elimination. We can give the n  r free variables any values, then Ax = b determines the r pivot variables (if solvable!).

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

lAII = l/lAI and IATI = IAI.
The big formula for det(A) has a sum of n! terms, the cofactor formula uses determinants of size n  1, volume of box = I det( A) I.

Nullspace N (A)
= All solutions to Ax = O. Dimension n  r = (# columns)  rank.

Outer product uv T
= column times row = rank one matrix.

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).

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).

Row space C (AT) = all combinations of rows of A.
Column vectors by convention.

Similar matrices A and B.
Every B = MI AM has the same eigenvalues as A.

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}.

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