Key Math Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
• 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).

• Big formula for n by n determinants.

Det(A) is a sum of n! terms. For each term: Multiply one entry from each row and column of A: rows in order 1, ... , nand column order given by a permutation P. Each of the n! P 's has a + or - sign.

• Cholesky factorization

A = CTC = (L.J]))(L.J]))T for positive definite A.

• Cofactor Cij.

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

• Diagonalization

A = S-1 AS. A = eigenvalue matrix and S = eigenvector matrix of A. A must have n independent eigenvectors to make S invertible. All Ak = SA k S-I.

• 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 Fn-1c can be computed with ne/2 multiplications. Revolutionary.

• Hankel matrix H.

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

• Incidence matrix of a directed graph.

The m by n edge-node incidence matrix has a row for each edge (node i to node j), with entries -1 and 1 in columns i and j .

• Iterative method.

A sequence of steps intended to approach the desired solution.

• Left nullspace N (AT).

Nullspace of AT = "left nullspace" of A because y T A = OT.

• Linear combination cv + d w or L C jV j.

• 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 .

• 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).

• Multiplier eij.

The pivot row j is multiplied by eij and subtracted from row i to eliminate the i, j entry: eij = (entry to eliminate) / (jth pivot).

• 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).

• 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.

• Plane (or hyperplane) in Rn.

Vectors x with aT x = O. Plane is perpendicular to a =1= O.

• Rank r (A)

= number of pivots = dimension of column space = dimension of row space.

• Schur complement S, D - C A -} B.

Appears in block elimination on [~ g ].

• Similar matrices A and B.

Every B = M-I AM has the same eigenvalues as A.
