Circulant matrix C.
Constant diagonals wrap around as in cyclic shift S. Every circulant is Col + CIS + ... + Cn_lSn  l . Cx = convolution c * x. Eigenvectors in F.

Cyclic shift
S. Permutation with S21 = 1, S32 = 1, ... , finally SIn = 1. Its eigenvalues are the nth roots e2lrik/n of 1; eigenvectors are columns of the Fourier matrix F.

Determinant IAI = det(A).
Defined by det I = 1, sign reversal for row exchange, and linearity in each row. Then IAI = 0 when A is singular. Also IABI = IAIIBI and

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

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

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

Inverse matrix AI.
Square matrix with AI A = I and AAl = I. No inverse if det A = 0 and rank(A) < n and Ax = 0 for a nonzero vector x. The inverses of AB and AT are B1 AI and (AI)T. Cofactor formula (Al)ij = Cji! detA.

Iterative method.
A sequence of steps intended to approach the desired solution.

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

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.

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.

Random matrix rand(n) or randn(n).
MATLAB creates a matrix with random entries, uniformly distributed on [0 1] for rand and standard normal distribution for randn.

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.

Spanning set.
Combinations of VI, ... ,Vm fill the space. The columns of A span C (A)!

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

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

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

Vandermonde matrix V.
V c = b gives coefficients of p(x) = Co + ... + Cn_IXn 1 with P(Xi) = bi. Vij = (Xi)jI and det V = product of (Xk  Xi) for k > i.

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