This expansive textbook survival guide covers the following chapters: 68.

Associative Law (AB)C = A(BC).
Parentheses can be removed to leave ABC.

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.

Block matrix.
A matrix can be partitioned into matrix blocks, by cuts between rows and/or between columns. Block multiplication ofAB is allowed if the block shapes permit.

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

Diagonalizable matrix A.
Must have n independent eigenvectors (in the columns of S; automatic with n different eigenvalues). Then SI AS = A = eigenvalue matrix.

Distributive Law
A(B + C) = AB + AC. Add then multiply, or mUltiply then add.

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.

Exponential eAt = I + At + (At)2 12! + ...
has derivative AeAt; eAt u(O) solves u' = Au.

Full row rank r = m.
Independent rows, at least one solution to Ax = b, column space is all of Rm. Full rank means full column rank or full row rank.

Multiplication Ax
= Xl (column 1) + ... + xn(column n) = combination of columns.

Nullspace matrix N.
The columns of N are the n  r special solutions to As = O.

Orthogonal matrix Q.
Square matrix with orthonormal columns, so QT = Ql. Preserves length and angles, IIQxll = IIxll and (QX)T(Qy) = xTy. AlllAI = 1, with orthogonal eigenvectors. Examples: Rotation, reflection, permutation.

Projection matrix P onto subspace S.
Projection p = P b is the closest point to b in S, error e = b  Pb is perpendicularto S. p 2 = P = pT, eigenvalues are 1 or 0, eigenvectors are in S or S...L. If columns of A = basis for S then P = A (AT A) 1 AT.

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

Pseudoinverse A+ (MoorePenrose 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).

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).

Schur complement S, D  C A } B.
Appears in block elimination on [~ g ].

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

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

Solvable system Ax = b.
The right side b is in the column space of A.
