Back substitution.
Upper triangular systems are solved in reverse order Xn to Xl.

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.)

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.

Diagonal matrix D.
dij = 0 if i # j. Blockdiagonal: zero outside square blocks Du.

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

Eigenvalue A and eigenvector x.
Ax = AX with x#O so det(A  AI) = o.

Fundamental Theorem.
The nullspace N (A) and row space C (AT) are orthogonal complements in Rn(perpendicular from Ax = 0 with dimensions rand n  r). Applied to AT, the column space C(A) is the orthogonal complement of N(AT) in Rm.

GaussJordan method.
Invert A by row operations on [A I] to reach [I AI].

GramSchmidt orthogonalization A = QR.
Independent columns in A, orthonormal columns in Q. Each column q j of Q is a combination of the first j columns of A (and conversely, so R is upper triangular). Convention: diag(R) > o.

Graph G.
Set of n nodes connected pairwise by m edges. A complete graph has all n(n  1)/2 edges between nodes. A tree has only n  1 edges and no closed loops.

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

Identity matrix I (or In).
Diagonal entries = 1, offdiagonal entries = 0.

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

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.

Spectrum of A = the set of eigenvalues {A I, ... , An}.
Spectral radius = max of IAi I.

Subspace S of V.
Any vector space inside V, including V and Z = {zero vector only}.

Volume of box.
The rows (or the columns) of A generate a box with volume I det(A) I.
