Adjacency matrix of a graph.
Square matrix with aij = 1 when there is an edge from node i to node j; otherwise aij = O. A = AT when edges go both ways (undirected). Adjacency matrix of a graph. Square matrix with aij = 1 when there is an edge from node i to node j; otherwise aij = O. A = AT when edges go both ways (undirected).

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

Condition number
cond(A) = c(A) = IIAIlIIAIII = amaxlamin. In Ax = b, the relative change Ilox III Ilx II is less than cond(A) times the relative change Ilob III lib IIĀ· Condition numbers measure the sensitivity of the output to change in the input.

Elimination matrix = Elementary matrix Eij.
The identity matrix with an extra eij in the i, j entry (i # j). Then Eij A subtracts eij times row j of A from row i.

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 column rank r = n.
Independent columns, N(A) = {O}, no free variables.

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.

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.

Hankel matrix H.
Constant along each antidiagonal; hij depends on i + j.

Network.
A directed graph that has constants Cl, ... , Cm associated with the edges.

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

Orthogonal matrix Q.
Square matrix with orthonormal columns, so QT = Ql. Preserves length and angles, IIQxll = IIxll and (QX)T(Qy) = xTy. AlllAI = 1, with orthogonal eigenvectors. Examples: Rotation, reflection, permutation.

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

Projection matrix P onto subspace S.
Projection p = P b is the closest point to b in S, error e = b  Pb is perpendicularto S. p 2 = P = pT, eigenvalues are 1 or 0, eigenvectors are in S or S...L. If columns of A = basis for S then P = A (AT A) 1 AT.

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 ].

Spanning set.
Combinations of VI, ... ,Vm fill the space. The columns of A span C (A)!

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

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

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