Key Math Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • Affine transformation

    Tv = Av + Vo = linear transformation plus shift.

  • Cayley-Hamilton Theorem.

    peA) = det(A - AI) has peA) = zero matrix.

  • Column space C (A) =

    space of all combinations of the columns of A.

  • Conjugate Gradient Method.

    A sequence of steps (end of Chapter 9) to solve positive definite Ax = b by minimizing !x T Ax - x Tb over growing Krylov subspaces.

  • Distributive Law

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

  • 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.

  • Hessenberg matrix H.

    Triangular matrix with one extra nonzero adjacent diagonal.

  • Hilbert matrix hilb(n).

    Entries HU = 1/(i + j -1) = Jd X i- 1 xj-1dx. Positive definite but extremely small Amin and large condition number: H is ill-conditioned.

  • Hypercube matrix pl.

    Row n + 1 counts corners, edges, faces, ... of a cube in Rn.

  • Left inverse A+.

    If A has full column rank n, then A+ = (AT A)-I AT has A+ A = In.

  • Nullspace matrix N.

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

  • Partial pivoting.

    In each column, choose the largest available pivot to control roundoff; all multipliers have leij I < 1. See condition number.

  • 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.

  • Rank one matrix A = uvT f=. O.

    Column and row spaces = lines cu and cv.

  • Rayleigh quotient q (x) = X T Ax I x T x for symmetric A: Amin < q (x) < Amax.

    Those extremes are reached at the eigenvectors x for Amin(A) and Amax(A).

  • Row picture of Ax = b.

    Each equation gives a plane in Rn; the planes intersect at x.

  • Spectral Theorem A = QAQT.

    Real symmetric A has real A'S and orthonormal q's.

  • Spectrum of A = the set of eigenvalues {A I, ... , An}.

    Spectral radius = max of IAi I.

  • Vector v in Rn.

    Sequence of n real numbers v = (VI, ... , Vn) = point in Rn.

  • Wavelets Wjk(t).

    Stretch and shift the time axis to create Wjk(t) = woo(2j t - k).
