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

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.

Fibonacci numbers
0,1,1,2,3,5, ... satisfy Fn = Fnl + Fn 2 = (A7 A~)I()q A2). Growth rate Al = (1 + .J5) 12 is the largest eigenvalue of the Fibonacci matrix [ } A].

Free columns of A.
Columns without pivots; these are combinations of earlier columns.

Hermitian matrix A H = AT = A.
Complex analog a j i = aU of a symmetric matrix.

Hilbert matrix hilb(n).
Entries HU = 1/(i + j 1) = Jd X i 1 xj1dx. Positive definite but extremely small Amin and large condition number: H is illconditioned.

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.

Network.
A directed graph that has constants Cl, ... , Cm associated with the edges.

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

Polar decomposition A = Q H.

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).

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.
