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 xj1dx. Positive definite but extremely small Amin and large condition number: H is illconditioned.

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, ... , AjIb. 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.
