Key Math Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • Associative Law (AB)C = A(BC).

    Parentheses can be removed to leave ABC.

  • Complete solution x = x p + Xn to Ax = b.

    (Particular x p) + (x n in nullspace).

  • Dimension of vector space

    dim(V) = number of vectors in any basis for V.

  • Elimination.

    A sequence of row operations that reduces A to an upper triangular U or to the reduced form R = rref(A). Then A = LU with multipliers eO in L, or P A = L U with row exchanges in P, or E A = R with an invertible E.

  • 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.

  • Free variable Xi.

    Column i has no pivot in elimination. We can give the n - r free variables any values, then Ax = b determines the r pivot variables (if solvable!).

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Left inverse A+.

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

  • Linear combination cv + d w or L C jV j.

    Vector addition and scalar multiplication.

  • Orthogonal subspaces.

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

  • Particular solution x p.

    Any solution to Ax = b; often x p has free variables = o.

  • Polar decomposition A = Q H.

    Orthogonal Q times positive (semi)definite H.

  • Rank r (A)

    = number of pivots = dimension of column space = dimension of row space.

  • Row picture of Ax = b.

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

  • Similar matrices A and B.

    Every B = M-I AM has the same eigenvalues as A.

  • Special solutions to As = O.

    One free variable is Si = 1, other free variables = o.

  • Sum V + W of subs paces.

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

  • 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.
