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.

CayleyHamilton Theorem.
peA) = det(A  AI) has peA) = zero matrix.

Fast Fourier Transform (FFT).
A factorization of the Fourier matrix Fn into e = log2 n matrices Si times a permutation. Each Si needs only nl2 multiplications, so Fnx and Fn1c can be computed with ne/2 multiplications. Revolutionary.

GaussJordan method.
Invert A by row operations on [A I] to reach [I AI].

Hankel matrix H.
Constant along each antidiagonal; hij depends on i + j.

Hessenberg matrix H.
Triangular matrix with one extra nonzero adjacent diagonal.

Iterative method.
A sequence of steps intended to approach the desired solution.

Multiplicities AM and G M.
The algebraic multiplicity A M of A is the number of times A appears as a root of det(A  AI) = O. The geometric multiplicity GM is the number of independent eigenvectors for A (= dimension of the eigenspace).

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.

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

Projection p = a(aTblaTa) onto the line through a.
P = aaT laTa has rank l.

Rank one matrix A = uvT f=. O.
Column and row spaces = lines cu and cv.

Reduced row echelon form R = rref(A).
Pivots = 1; zeros above and below pivots; the r nonzero rows of R give a basis for the row space of A.

Singular matrix A.
A square matrix that has no inverse: det(A) = o.

Special solutions to As = O.
One free variable is Si = 1, other free variables = o.

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

Trace of A
= sum of diagonal entries = sum of eigenvalues of A. Tr AB = Tr BA.

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.

Vector v in Rn.
Sequence of n real numbers v = (VI, ... , Vn) = point in Rn.

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