Key Math Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
• Affine transformation

Tv = Av + Vo = linear transformation plus shift.

A sequence of steps (end of Chapter 9) to solve positive definite Ax = b by minimizing !x T Ax - x Tb over growing Krylov subspaces.

• 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).

• Free variable Xi.

Column i has no pivot in elimination. We can give the n - r free variables any values, then Ax = b determines the r pivot variables (if solvable!).

• Full row rank r = m.

Independent rows, at least one solution to Ax = b, column space is all of Rm. Full rank means full column rank or full row rank.

• 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.

• 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.

• Multiplier eij.

The pivot row j is multiplied by eij and subtracted from row i to eliminate the i, j entry: eij = (entry to eliminate) / (jth pivot).

• Nullspace matrix N.

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

• 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.

• Saddle point of I(x}, ... ,xn ).

A point where the first derivatives of I are zero and the second derivative matrix (a2 II aXi ax j = Hessian matrix) is indefinite.

• Schwarz inequality

Iv·wl < IIvll IIwll.Then IvTAwl2 < (vT Av)(wT Aw) for pos def A.

• Spectral Theorem A = QAQT.

Real symmetric A has real A'S and orthonormal q's.

• Standard basis for Rn.

Columns of n by n identity matrix (written i ,j ,k in R3).

• Sum V + W of subs paces.

Space of all (v in V) + (w in W). Direct sum: V n W = to}.

• Trace of A

= sum of diagonal entries = sum of eigenvalues of A. Tr AB = Tr BA.

• Tridiagonal matrix T: tij = 0 if Ii - j I > 1.

T- 1 has rank 1 above and below diagonal.

• Volume of box.

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