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

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

Cramer's Rule for Ax = b.
B j has b replacing column j of A; x j = det B j I det A

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

Dimension of vector space
dim(V) = number of vectors in any basis for V.

Echelon matrix U.
The first nonzero entry (the pivot) in each row comes in a later column than the pivot in the previous row. All zero rows come last.

Fibonacci numbers
0,1,1,2,3,5, ... satisfy Fn = Fnl + Fn 2 = (A7 A~)I()q A2). Growth rate Al = (1 + .J5) 12 is the largest eigenvalue of the Fibonacci matrix [ } A].

Four Fundamental Subspaces C (A), N (A), C (AT), N (AT).
Use AT for complex A.

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.

Iterative method.
A sequence of steps intended to approach the desired solution.

lAII = l/lAI and IATI = IAI.
The big formula for det(A) has a sum of n! terms, the cofactor formula uses determinants of size n  1, volume of box = I det( A) I.

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

Normal matrix.
If N NT = NT N, then N has orthonormal (complex) eigenvectors.

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.

Reflection matrix (Householder) Q = I 2uuT.
Unit vector u is reflected to Qu = u. All x intheplanemirroruTx = o have Qx = x. Notice QT = Q1 = Q.

Similar matrices A and B.
Every B = MI AM has the same eigenvalues as A.

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

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

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.
