This textbook survival guide was created for the textbook: College Algebra , edition: 8.

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

Conjugate Gradient Method.
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.
