Affine transformation
Tv = Av + Vo = linear transformation plus shift.

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

Basis for V.
Independent vectors VI, ... , v d whose linear combinations give each vector in V as v = CIVI + ... + CdVd. V has many bases, each basis gives unique c's. A vector space has many bases!

Commuting matrices AB = BA.
If diagonalizable, they share n eigenvectors.

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].

Dimension of vector space
dim(V) = number of vectors in any basis for V.

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).

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

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

Jordan form 1 = M 1 AM.
If A has s independent eigenvectors, its "generalized" eigenvector matrix M gives 1 = diag(lt, ... , 1s). The block his Akh +Nk where Nk has 1 's on diagonall. Each block has one eigenvalue Ak and one eigenvector.

lAII = l/lAI and IATI = IAI.
The big formula for det(A) has a sum of n! terms, the cofactor formula uses determinants of size n  1, volume of box = I det( A) I.

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).

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

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

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

Partial pivoting.
In each column, choose the largest available pivot to control roundoff; all multipliers have leij I < 1. See condition number.

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

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).

Right inverse A+.
If A has full row rank m, then A+ = AT(AAT)l has AA+ = 1m.

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