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

Tv = Av + Vo = linear transformation plus shift.

• Big formula for n by n determinants.

Det(A) is a sum of n! terms. For each term: Multiply one entry from each row and column of A: rows in order 1, ... , nand column order given by a permutation P. Each of the n! P 's has a + or - sign.

• 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.

• Circulant matrix C.

Constant diagonals wrap around as in cyclic shift S. Every circulant is Col + CIS + ... + Cn_lSn - l . Cx = convolution c * x. Eigenvectors in F.

• Cofactor Cij.

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

• Column picture of Ax = b.

The vector b becomes a combination of the columns of A. The system is solvable only when b is in the column space C (A).

• 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.

• 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.

• Exponential eAt = I + At + (At)2 12! + ...

has derivative AeAt; eAt u(O) solves u' = Au.

• lA-II = 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.

• Least squares solution X.

The vector x that minimizes the error lie 112 solves AT Ax = ATb. Then e = b - Ax is orthogonal to all columns of A.

• Linear combination cv + d w or L C jV j.

• Permutation matrix P.

There are n! orders of 1, ... , n. The n! P 's have the rows of I in those orders. P A puts the rows of A in the same order. P is even or odd (det P = 1 or -1) based on the number of row exchanges to reach I.

• Schur complement S, D - C A -} B.

Appears in block elimination on [~ g ].

• Singular matrix A.

A square matrix that has no inverse: det(A) = o.

• Stiffness matrix

If x gives the movements of the nodes, K x gives the internal forces. K = ATe A where C has spring constants from Hooke's Law and Ax = stretching.

• Subspace S of V.

Any vector space inside V, including V and Z = {zero vector only}.

• Trace of A

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

• Vector space V.

Set of vectors such that all combinations cv + d w remain within V. Eight required rules are given in Section 3.1 for scalars c, d and vectors v, w.
