Associative Law (AB)C = A(BC).
Parentheses can be removed to leave ABC.

Circulant matrix C.
Constant diagonals wrap around as in cyclic shift S. Every circulant is Col + CIS + ... + Cn_lSn  l . Cx = convolution c * x. Eigenvectors in F.

Diagonal matrix D.
dij = 0 if i # j. Blockdiagonal: zero outside square blocks Du.

Four Fundamental Subspaces C (A), N (A), C (AT), N (AT).
Use AT for complex A.

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.

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

Linear transformation T.
Each vector V in the input space transforms to T (v) in the output space, and linearity requires T(cv + dw) = c T(v) + d T(w). Examples: Matrix multiplication A v, differentiation and integration in function space.

Multiplicities AM and G M.
The algebraic multiplicity A M of A is the number of times A appears as a root of det(A  AI) = O. The geometric multiplicity GM is the number of independent eigenvectors for A (= dimension of the eigenspace).

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.

Pivot.
The diagonal entry (first nonzero) at the time when a row is used in elimination.

Random matrix rand(n) or randn(n).
MATLAB creates a matrix with random entries, uniformly distributed on [0 1] for rand and standard normal distribution for randn.

Rank r (A)
= number of pivots = dimension of column space = dimension of row space.

Row space C (AT) = all combinations of rows of A.
Column vectors by convention.

Schur complement S, D  C A } B.
Appears in block elimination on [~ g ].

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

Spanning set.

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

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

Sum V + W of subs paces.
Space of all (v in V) + (w in W). Direct sum: V n W = to}.

Transpose matrix AT.
Entries AL = Ajj. AT is n by In, AT A is square, symmetric, positive semidefinite. The transposes of AB and AI are BT AT and (AT)I.
