Key Math Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
• Back substitution.

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

• 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!

• Complete solution x = x p + Xn to Ax = b.

(Particular x p) + (x n in nullspace).

• Covariance matrix:E.

When random variables Xi have mean = average value = 0, their covariances "'£ ij are the averages of XiX j. With means Xi, the matrix :E = mean of (x - x) (x - x) T is positive (semi)definite; :E is diagonal if the Xi are independent.

• Cyclic shift

S. Permutation with S21 = 1, S32 = 1, ... , finally SIn = 1. Its eigenvalues are the nth roots e2lrik/n of 1; eigenvectors are columns of the Fourier matrix F.

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

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

• Fourier matrix F.

Entries Fjk = e21Cijk/n give orthogonal columns FT F = nI. Then y = Fe is the (inverse) Discrete Fourier Transform Y j = L cke21Cijk/n.

• Hankel matrix H.

Constant along each antidiagonal; hij depends on i + j.

• Hilbert matrix hilb(n).

Entries HU = 1/(i + j -1) = Jd X i- 1 xj-1dx. Positive definite but extremely small Amin and large condition number: H is ill-conditioned.

• Kirchhoff's Laws.

Current Law: net current (in minus out) is zero at each node. Voltage Law: Potential differences (voltage drops) add to zero around any closed loop.

• Kronecker product (tensor product) A ® B.

Blocks aij B, eigenvalues Ap(A)Aq(B).

• Krylov subspace Kj(A, b).

The subspace spanned by b, Ab, ... , Aj-Ib. Numerical methods approximate A -I b by x j with residual b - Ax j in this subspace. A good basis for K j requires only multiplication by A at each step.

• Length II x II.

Square root of x T x (Pythagoras in n dimensions).

• Normal matrix.

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

• Orthogonal subspaces.

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

• Schwarz inequality

Iv·wl < IIvll IIwll.Then IvTAwl2 < (vT Av)(wT Aw) for pos def A.

• Singular matrix A.

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

• 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 v in Rn.

Sequence of n real numbers v = (VI, ... , Vn) = point in Rn.
