Key Math Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
• 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, off-diagonal 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 A-I are BT AT and (AT)-I.
