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.

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).

Covariance matrix:E.
When random variables Xi have mean = average value = 0, their covariances "'£ ij are the averages of XiX j. With means Xi, the matrix :E = mean of (x  x) (x  x) T is positive (semi)definite; :E is diagonal if the Xi are independent.

Diagonalizable matrix A.
Must have n independent eigenvectors (in the columns of S; automatic with n different eigenvalues). Then SI AS = A = eigenvalue matrix.

Diagonalization
A = S1 AS. A = eigenvalue matrix and S = eigenvector matrix of A. A must have n independent eigenvectors to make S invertible. All Ak = SA k SI.

Eigenvalue A and eigenvector x.
Ax = AX with x#O so det(A  AI) = o.

Fibonacci numbers
0,1,1,2,3,5, ... satisfy Fn = Fnl + Fn 2 = (A7 A~)I()q A2). Growth rate Al = (1 + .J5) 12 is the largest eigenvalue of the Fibonacci matrix [ } A].

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.

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 .

Least squares solution X.
The vector x that minimizes the error lie 112 solves AT Ax = ATb. Then e = b  Ax is orthogonal to all columns of A.

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

Rank one matrix A = uvT f=. O.
Column and row spaces = lines cu and cv.

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

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.

Row picture of Ax = b.
Each equation gives a plane in Rn; the planes intersect at x.

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

Similar matrices A and B.
Every B = MI AM has the same eigenvalues as A.

Simplex method for linear programming.
The minimum cost vector x * is found by moving from comer to lower cost comer along the edges of the feasible set (where the constraints Ax = b and x > 0 are satisfied). Minimum cost at a comer!

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