Adjacency matrix of a graph.
Square matrix with aij = 1 when there is an edge from node i to node j; otherwise aij = O. A = AT when edges go both ways (undirected). Adjacency matrix of a graph. Square matrix with aij = 1 when there is an edge from node i to node j; otherwise aij = O. A = AT when edges go both ways (undirected).

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

Complete solution x = x p + Xn to Ax = b.
(Particular x p) + (x n in nullspace).

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.

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

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

Independent vectors VI, .. " vk.
No combination cl VI + ... + qVk = zero vector unless all ci = O. If the v's are the columns of A, the only solution to Ax = 0 is x = o.

Left nullspace N (AT).
Nullspace of AT = "left nullspace" of A because y T A = OT.

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

Orthonormal vectors q 1 , ... , q n·
Dot products are q T q j = 0 if i =1= j and q T q i = 1. The matrix Q with these orthonormal columns has Q T Q = I. If m = n then Q T = Q 1 and q 1 ' ... , q n is an orthonormal basis for Rn : every v = L (v T q j )q j •

Outer product uv T
= column times row = rank one matrix.

Plane (or hyperplane) in Rn.
Vectors x with aT x = O. Plane is perpendicular to a =1= O.

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

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.

Simplex method for linear programming.
The minimum cost vector x * is found by moving from comer to lower cost comer along the edges of the feasible set (where the constraints Ax = b and x > 0 are satisfied). Minimum cost at a comer!

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

Symmetric factorizations A = LDLT and A = QAQT.
Signs in A = signs in D.

Transpose matrix AT.
Entries AL = Ajj. AT is n by In, AT A is square, symmetric, positive semidefinite. The transposes of AB and AI are BT AT and (AT)I.
