This textbook survival guide was created for the textbook: Discovering Algebra: An Investigative Approach, edition: 2. This expansive textbook survival guide covers the following chapters and their solutions.

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.

Column space C (A) =
space of all combinations of the columns of A.

Complete solution x = x p + Xn to Ax = b.
(Particular x p) + (x n in nullspace).

Dimension of vector space
dim(V) = number of vectors in any basis for V.

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

Exponential eAt = I + At + (At)2 12! + ...
has derivative AeAt; eAt u(O) solves u' = Au.

Factorization
A = L U. If elimination takes A to U without row exchanges, then the lower triangular L with multipliers eij (and eii = 1) brings U back to A.

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.

GramSchmidt orthogonalization A = QR.
Independent columns in A, orthonormal columns in Q. Each column q j of Q is a combination of the first j columns of A (and conversely, so R is upper triangular). Convention: diag(R) > o.

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

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.

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).

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

Particular solution x p.
Any solution to Ax = b; often x p has free variables = o.

Positive definite matrix A.
Symmetric matrix with positive eigenvalues and positive pivots. Definition: x T Ax > 0 unless x = O. Then A = LDLT with diag(D» O.

Row picture of Ax = b.
Each equation gives a plane in Rn; the planes intersect at x.

Singular Value Decomposition
(SVD) A = U:E VT = (orthogonal) ( diag)( orthogonal) First r columns of U and V are orthonormal bases of C (A) and C (AT), AVi = O'iUi with singular value O'i > O. Last columns are orthonormal bases of nullspaces.

Spectral Theorem A = QAQT.
Real symmetric A has real A'S and orthonormal q's.

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.
