Augmented matrix [A b].
Ax = b is solvable when b is in the column space of A; then [A b] has the same rank as A. Elimination on [A b] keeps equations correct.

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.

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

Complex conjugate
z = a  ib for any complex number z = a + ib. Then zz = Iz12.

Cramer's Rule for Ax = b.
B j has b replacing column j of A; x j = det B j I det A

Determinant IAI = det(A).
Defined by det I = 1, sign reversal for row exchange, and linearity in each row. Then IAI = 0 when A is singular. Also IABI = IAIIBI and

Elimination matrix = Elementary matrix Eij.
The identity matrix with an extra eij in the i, j entry (i # j). Then Eij A subtracts eij times row j of A from row i.

Graph G.
Set of n nodes connected pairwise by m edges. A complete graph has all n(n  1)/2 edges between nodes. A tree has only n  1 edges and no closed loops.

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.

Kronecker product (tensor product) A ® B.
Blocks aij B, eigenvalues Ap(A)Aq(B).

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.

Lucas numbers
Ln = 2,J, 3, 4, ... satisfy Ln = L n l +Ln 2 = A1 +A~, with AI, A2 = (1 ± /5)/2 from the Fibonacci matrix U~]' Compare Lo = 2 with Fo = O.

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

Outer product uv T
= column times row = rank one matrix.

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.

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

Reflection matrix (Householder) Q = I 2uuT.
Unit vector u is reflected to Qu = u. All x intheplanemirroruTx = o have Qx = x. Notice QT = Q1 = Q.

Standard basis for Rn.
Columns of n by n identity matrix (written i ,j ,k in R3).

Symmetric factorizations A = LDLT and A = QAQT.
Signs in A = signs in D.

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