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

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.

Companion matrix.
Put CI, ... ,Cn in row n and put n  1 ones just above the main diagonal. Then det(A  AI) = ±(CI + c2A + C3A 2 + .•. + cnA nl  An).

Cramer's Rule for Ax = b.
B j has b replacing column j of A; x j = det B j I det A

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

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.

GaussJordan method.
Invert A by row operations on [A I] to reach [I AI].

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.

Hilbert matrix hilb(n).
Entries HU = 1/(i + j 1) = Jd X i 1 xj1dx. Positive definite but extremely small Amin and large condition number: H is illconditioned.

Incidence matrix of a directed graph.
The m by n edgenode incidence matrix has a row for each edge (node i to node j), with entries 1 and 1 in columns i and j .

Jordan form 1 = M 1 AM.
If A has s independent eigenvectors, its "generalized" eigenvector matrix M gives 1 = diag(lt, ... , 1s). The block his Akh +Nk where Nk has 1 's on diagonall. Each block has one eigenvalue Ak and one eigenvector.

Nilpotent matrix N.
Some power of N is the zero matrix, N k = o. The only eigenvalue is A = 0 (repeated n times). Examples: triangular matrices with zero diagonal.

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

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

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

Row space C (AT) = all combinations of rows of A.
Column vectors by convention.

Schwarz inequality
Iv·wl < IIvll IIwll.Then IvTAwl2 < (vT Av)(wT Aw) for pos def A.

Solvable system Ax = b.
The right side b is in the column space of A.

Toeplitz matrix.
Constant down each diagonal = timeinvariant (shiftinvariant) filter.

Transpose matrix AT.
Entries AL = Ajj. AT is n by In, AT A is square, symmetric, positive semidefinite. The transposes of AB and AI are BT AT and (AT)I.
