Key Math Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • Change of basis matrix M.

    The old basis vectors v j are combinations L mij Wi of the new basis vectors. The coordinates of CI VI + ... + cnvn = dl wI + ... + dn Wn are related by d = M c. (For n = 2 set VI = mll WI +m21 W2, V2 = m12WI +m22w2.)

  • Column space C (A) =

    space of all combinations of the columns of A.

  • 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.

  • Cyclic shift

    S. Permutation with S21 = 1, S32 = 1, ... , finally SIn = 1. Its eigenvalues are the nth roots e2lrik/n of 1; eigenvectors are columns of the Fourier matrix F.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Four Fundamental Subspaces C (A), N (A), C (AT), N (AT).

    Use AT for complex A.

  • Free columns of A.

    Columns without pivots; these are combinations of earlier columns.

  • 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!).

  • Hankel matrix H.

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

  • Indefinite matrix.

    A symmetric matrix with eigenvalues of both signs (+ and - ).

  • Normal matrix.

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

  • Orthogonal subspaces.

    Every v in V is orthogonal to every w in W.

  • Pivot.

    The diagonal entry (first nonzero) at the time when a row is used in elimination.

  • Pseudoinverse A+ (Moore-Penrose inverse).

    The n by m matrix that "inverts" A from column space back to row space, with N(A+) = N(AT). A+ A and AA+ are the projection matrices onto the row space and column space. Rank(A +) = rank(A).

  • Rotation matrix

    R = [~ CS ] rotates the plane by () and R- 1 = RT rotates back by -(). Eigenvalues are eiO and e-iO , eigenvectors are (1, ±i). c, s = cos (), sin ().

  • 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.

  • Triangle inequality II u + v II < II u II + II v II.

    For matrix norms II A + B II < II A II + II B II·

  • Wavelets Wjk(t).

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