Column picture of Ax = b.
The vector b becomes a combination of the columns of A. The system is solvable only when b is in the column space C (A).

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

Dot product = Inner product x T y = XI Y 1 + ... + Xn Yn.
Complex dot product is x T Y . Perpendicular vectors have x T y = O. (AB)ij = (row i of A)T(column j of B).

Echelon matrix U.
The first nonzero entry (the pivot) in each row comes in a later column than the pivot in the previous row. All zero rows come last.

Fourier matrix F.
Entries Fjk = e21Cijk/n give orthogonal columns FT F = nI. Then y = Fe is the (inverse) Discrete Fourier Transform Y j = L cke21Cijk/n.

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.

Hessenberg matrix H.
Triangular matrix with one extra nonzero adjacent diagonal.

Krylov subspace Kj(A, b).
The subspace spanned by b, Ab, ... , AjIb. Numerical methods approximate A I b by x j with residual b  Ax j in this subspace. A good basis for K j requires only multiplication by A at each step.

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

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.

Linearly dependent VI, ... , Vn.
A combination other than all Ci = 0 gives L Ci Vi = O.

Orthogonal subspaces.
Every v in V is orthogonal to every w in W.

Pascal matrix
Ps = pascal(n) = the symmetric matrix with binomial entries (i1~;2). Ps = PL Pu all contain Pascal's triangle with det = 1 (see Pascal in the index).

Projection p = a(aTblaTa) onto the line through a.
P = aaT laTa has rank l.

Rank r (A)
= number of pivots = dimension of column space = dimension of row space.

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

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

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