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.

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.

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

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.

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.

Ellipse (or ellipsoid) x T Ax = 1.
A must be positive definite; the axes of the ellipse are eigenvectors of A, with lengths 1/.JI. (For IIx II = 1 the vectors y = Ax lie on the ellipse IIA1 yll2 = Y T(AAT)1 Y = 1 displayed by eigshow; axis lengths ad

Four Fundamental Subspaces C (A), N (A), C (AT), N (AT).
Use AT for complex A.

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

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.

Minimal polynomial of A.
The lowest degree polynomial with meA) = zero matrix. This is peA) = det(A  AI) if no eigenvalues are repeated; always meA) divides peA).

Network.
A directed graph that has constants Cl, ... , Cm associated with the edges.

Positive definite matrix A.
Symmetric matrix with positive eigenvalues and positive pivots. Definition: x T Ax > 0 unless x = O. Then A = LDLT with diag(DÂ» O.

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

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

Schur complement S, D  C A } B.
Appears in block elimination on [~ g ].

Subspace S of V.
Any vector space inside V, including V and Z = {zero vector only}.

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

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

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.

Volume of box.
The rows (or the columns) of A generate a box with volume I det(A) I.
