Key Math Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • Basis for V.

    Independent vectors VI, ... , v d whose linear combinations give each vector in V as v = CIVI + ... + CdVd. V has many bases, each basis gives unique c's. A vector space has many bases!

  • 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.

  • Cholesky factorization

    A = CTC = (L.J]))(L.J]))T for positive definite A.

  • Cofactor Cij.

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

  • Distributive Law

    A(B + C) = AB + AC. Add then multiply, or mUltiply then add.

  • Hypercube matrix pl.

    Row n + 1 counts corners, edges, faces, ... of a cube in Rn.

  • 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.

  • Left nullspace N (AT).

    Nullspace of AT = "left nullspace" of A because y T A = OT.

  • Matrix multiplication AB.

    The i, j entry of AB is (row i of A)·(column j of B) = L aikbkj. By columns: Column j of AB = A times column j of B. By rows: row i of A multiplies B. Columns times rows: AB = sum of (column k)(row k). All these equivalent definitions come from the rule that A B times x equals A times B x .

  • 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).

  • Normal matrix.

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

  • 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.

  • Pseudoinverse A+ (Moore-Penrose inverse).

    The n by m matrix that "inverts" A from column space back to row space, with N(A+) = N(AT). A+ A and AA+ are the projection matrices onto the row space and column space. Rank(A +) = rank(A).

  • Rayleigh quotient q (x) = X T Ax I x T x for symmetric A: Amin < q (x) < Amax.

    Those extremes are reached at the eigenvectors x for Amin(A) and Amax(A).

  • Schur complement S, D - C A -} B.

    Appears in block elimination on [~ g ].

  • Spectral Theorem A = QAQT.

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

  • Subspace S of V.

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

  • Transpose matrix AT.

    Entries AL = Ajj. AT is n by In, AT A is square, symmetric, positive semidefinite. The transposes of AB and A-I are BT AT and (AT)-I.

  • Unitary matrix UH = U T = U-I.

    Orthonormal columns (complex analog of Q).
