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

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

• Change of basis matrix M.

The old basis vectors v j are combinations L mij Wi of the new basis vectors. The coordinates of CI VI + ... + cnvn = dl wI + ... + dn Wn are related by d = M c. (For n = 2 set VI = mll WI +m21 W2, V2 = m12WI +m22w2.)

• 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

• Fibonacci numbers

0,1,1,2,3,5, ... satisfy Fn = Fn-l + Fn- 2 = (A7 -A~)I()q -A2). Growth rate Al = (1 + .J5) 12 is the largest eigenvalue of the Fibonacci matrix [ } A].

• Full column rank r = n.

Independent columns, N(A) = {O}, no free variables.

• Gauss-Jordan method.

Invert A by row operations on [A I] to reach [I A-I].

• Hermitian matrix A H = AT = A.

Complex analog a j i = aU of a symmetric matrix.

• Identity matrix I (or In).

Diagonal entries = 1, off-diagonal entries = 0.

• Iterative method.

A sequence of steps intended to approach the desired solution.

• 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).

• 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.

• Reflection matrix (Householder) Q = I -2uuT.

Unit vector u is reflected to Qu = -u. All x intheplanemirroruTx = o have Qx = x. Notice QT = Q-1 = Q.

• Right inverse A+.

If A has full row rank m, then A+ = AT(AAT)-l has AA+ = 1m.

• Saddle point of I(x}, ... ,xn ).

A point where the first derivatives of I are zero and the second derivative matrix (a2 II aXi ax j = Hessian matrix) is indefinite.

• Singular matrix A.

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

• Stiffness matrix

If x gives the movements of the nodes, K x gives the internal forces. K = ATe A where C has spring constants from Hooke's Law and Ax = stretching.

• Subspace S of V.

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

• Toeplitz matrix.

Constant down each diagonal = time-invariant (shift-invariant) filter.

• 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.

• Volume of box.

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