Key Math Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • Block matrix.

    A matrix can be partitioned into matrix blocks, by cuts between rows and/or between columns. Block multiplication ofAB is allowed if the block shapes permit.

  • Characteristic equation det(A - AI) = O.

    The n roots are the eigenvalues of A.

  • Cofactor Cij.

    Remove row i and column j; multiply the determinant by (-I)i + j •

  • Complex conjugate

    z = a - ib for any complex number z = a + ib. Then zz = Iz12.

  • Diagonal matrix D.

    dij = 0 if i #- j. Block-diagonal: zero outside square blocks Du.

  • Factorization

    A = L U. If elimination takes A to U without row exchanges, then the lower triangular L with multipliers eij (and eii = 1) brings U back to A.

  • Free columns of A.

    Columns without pivots; these are combinations of earlier columns.

  • Linearly dependent VI, ... , Vn.

    A combination other than all Ci = 0 gives L Ci Vi = O.

  • Markov matrix M.

    All mij > 0 and each column sum is 1. Largest eigenvalue A = 1. If mij > 0, the columns of Mk approach the steady state eigenvector M s = s > O.

  • Nullspace matrix N.

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

  • Orthogonal matrix Q.

    Square matrix with orthonormal columns, so QT = Q-l. Preserves length and angles, IIQxll = IIxll and (QX)T(Qy) = xTy. AlllAI = 1, with orthogonal eigenvectors. Examples: Rotation, reflection, permutation.

  • Orthogonal subspaces.

    Every v in V is orthogonal to every w in W.

  • Outer product uv T

    = column times row = rank one matrix.

  • Pascal matrix

    Ps = pascal(n) = the symmetric matrix with binomial entries (i1~;2). Ps = PL Pu all contain Pascal's triangle with det = 1 (see Pascal in the index).

  • Plane (or hyperplane) in Rn.

    Vectors x with aT x = O. Plane is perpendicular to a =1= O.

  • Rank one matrix A = uvT f=. O.

    Column and row spaces = lines cu and cv.

  • Skew-symmetric matrix K.

    The transpose is -K, since Kij = -Kji. Eigenvalues are pure imaginary, eigenvectors are orthogonal, eKt is an orthogonal matrix.

  • Special solutions to As = O.

    One free variable is Si = 1, other free variables = o.

  • Symmetric matrix A.

    The transpose is AT = A, and aU = a ji. A-I is also symmetric.

  • Triangle inequality II u + v II < II u II + II v II.

    For matrix norms II A + B II < II A II + II B II·
