Adjacency matrix of a graph.
Square matrix with aij = 1 when there is an edge from node i to node j; otherwise aij = O. A = AT when edges go both ways (undirected). Adjacency matrix of a graph. Square matrix with aij = 1 when there is an edge from node i to node j; otherwise aij = O. A = AT when edges go both ways (undirected).

Back substitution.
Upper triangular systems are solved in reverse order Xn to Xl.

Complete solution x = x p + Xn to Ax = b.
(Particular x p) + (x n in nullspace).

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].

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).

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.

Kronecker product (tensor product) A ® B.
Blocks aij B, eigenvalues Ap(A)Aq(B).

Linear combination cv + d w or L C jV j.
Vector addition and scalar multiplication.

Nilpotent matrix N.
Some power of N is the zero matrix, N k = o. The only eigenvalue is A = 0 (repeated n times). Examples: triangular matrices with zero diagonal.

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

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).

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.

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

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

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!

Skewsymmetric matrix K.
The transpose is K, since Kij = Kji. Eigenvalues are pure imaginary, eigenvectors are orthogonal, eKt is an orthogonal matrix.

Volume of box.
The rows (or the columns) of A generate a box with volume I det(A) I.
