Key Math Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
• 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.

• Gram-Schmidt 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.

• 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.

• Incidence matrix of a directed graph.

The m by n edge-node 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.

• Kirchhoff's Laws.

Current Law: net current (in minus out) is zero at each node. Voltage Law: Potential differences (voltage drops) add to zero around any closed loop.

• lA-II = l/lAI and IATI = IAI.

The big formula for det(A) has a sum of n! terms, the cofactor formula uses determinants of size n - 1, volume of box = I det( A) I.

• Length II x II.

Square root of x T x (Pythagoras in n dimensions).

• Markov matrix M.

All mij > 0 and each column sum is 1. Largest eigenvalue A = 1. If mij > 0, the columns of Mk approach the steady state eigenvector M s = s > O.

• Nullspace matrix N.

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

• Plane (or hyperplane) in Rn.

Vectors x with aT x = O. Plane is perpendicular to a =1= O.

• Polar decomposition A = Q H.

Orthogonal Q times positive (semi)definite H.

• Schwarz inequality

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

• Simplex method for linear programming.

The minimum cost vector x * is found by moving from comer to lower cost comer along the edges of the feasible set (where the constraints Ax = b and x > 0 are satisfied). Minimum cost at a comer!

• Singular matrix A.

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

• Standard basis for Rn.

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

• 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.

v + w = (VI + WI, ... , Vn + Wn ) = diagonal of parallelogram.

• Vector space V.

Set of vectors such that all combinations cv + d w remain within V. Eight required rules are given in Section 3.1 for scalars c, d and vectors v, w.

• Volume of box.

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