Affine transformation
Tv = Av + Vo = linear transformation plus shift.

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.

Block matrix.
A matrix can be partitioned into matrix blocks, by cuts between rows and/or between columns. Block multiplication ofAB is allowed if the block shapes permit.

CayleyHamilton Theorem.
peA) = det(A  AI) has peA) = zero matrix.

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

Free columns of A.
Columns without pivots; these are combinations of earlier columns.

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

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

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

Linear transformation T.
Each vector V in the input space transforms to T (v) in the output space, and linearity requires T(cv + dw) = c T(v) + d T(w). Examples: Matrix multiplication A v, differentiation and integration in function space.

Multiplication Ax
= Xl (column 1) + ... + xn(column n) = combination of columns.

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

Polar decomposition A = Q H.
Orthogonal Q times positive (semi)definite H.

Reflection matrix (Householder) Q = I 2uuT.
Unit vector u is reflected to Qu = u. All x intheplanemirroruTx = o have Qx = x. Notice QT = Q1 = Q.

Right inverse A+.
If A has full row rank m, then A+ = AT(AAT)l has AA+ = 1m.

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

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.

Symmetric factorizations A = LDLT and A = QAQT.
Signs in A = signs in D.

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

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