Affine transformation
Tv = Av + Vo = linear transformation plus shift.

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).

Dot product = Inner product x T y = XI Y 1 + ... + Xn Yn.
Complex dot product is x T Y . Perpendicular vectors have x T y = O. (AB)ij = (row i of A)T(column j of B).

Ellipse (or ellipsoid) x T Ax = 1.
A must be positive definite; the axes of the ellipse are eigenvectors of A, with lengths 1/.JI. (For IIx II = 1 the vectors y = Ax lie on the ellipse IIA1 yll2 = Y T(AAT)1 Y = 1 displayed by eigshow; axis lengths ad

Full row rank r = m.
Independent rows, at least one solution to Ax = b, column space is all of Rm. Full rank means full column rank or full row rank.

GaussJordan method.
Invert A by row operations on [A I] to reach [I AI].

Hessenberg matrix H.
Triangular matrix with one extra nonzero adjacent diagonal.

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.

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

Independent vectors VI, .. " vk.
No combination cl VI + ... + qVk = zero vector unless all ci = O. If the v's are the columns of A, the only solution to Ax = 0 is x = o.

Iterative method.
A sequence of steps intended to approach the desired solution.

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.

Linear combination cv + d w or L C jV j.
Vector addition and scalar multiplication.

Network.
A directed graph that has constants Cl, ... , Cm associated with the edges.

Norm
IIA II. The ".e 2 norm" of A is the maximum ratio II Ax II/l1x II = O"max· Then II Ax II < IIAllllxll and IIABII < IIAIIIIBII and IIA + BII < IIAII + IIBII. Frobenius norm IIAII} = L La~. The.e 1 and.e oo norms are largest column and row sums of laij I.

Plane (or hyperplane) in Rn.
Vectors x with aT x = O. Plane is perpendicular to a =1= O.

Polar decomposition A = Q H.
Orthogonal Q times positive (semi)definite H.

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

Volume of box.
The rows (or the columns) of A generate a box with volume I det(A) I.
