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

Covariance matrix:E.
When random variables Xi have mean = average value = 0, their covariances "'£ ij are the averages of XiX j. With means Xi, the matrix :E = mean of (x  x) (x  x) T is positive (semi)definite; :E is diagonal if the Xi are independent.

Distributive Law
A(B + C) = AB + AC. Add then multiply, or mUltiply then add.

Eigenvalue A and eigenvector x.
Ax = AX with x#O so det(A  AI) = o.

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.

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].

Incidence matrix of a directed graph.
The m by n edgenode incidence matrix has a row for each edge (node i to node j), with entries 1 and 1 in columns i and j .

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.

Left nullspace N (AT).
Nullspace of AT = "left nullspace" of A because y T A = OT.

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

Nullspace matrix N.
The columns of N are the n  r special solutions to As = O.

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.

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

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

Rank one matrix A = uvT f=. O.
Column and row spaces = lines cu and cv.

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

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

Schwarz inequality
Iv·wl < IIvll IIwll.Then IvTAwl2 < (vT Av)(wT Aw) for pos def A.

Unitary matrix UH = U T = UI.
Orthonormal columns (complex analog of Q).
