Back substitution.
Upper triangular systems are solved in reverse order Xn to Xl.

Basis for V.
Independent vectors VI, ... , v d whose linear combinations give each vector in V as v = CIVI + ... + CdVd. V has many bases, each basis gives unique c's. A vector space has many bases!

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.

Characteristic equation det(A  AI) = O.
The n roots are the eigenvalues of A.

Column picture of Ax = b.
The vector b becomes a combination of the columns of A. The system is solvable only when b is in the column space C (A).

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.

Cross product u xv in R3:
Vector perpendicular to u and v, length Ilullllvlll sin el = area of parallelogram, u x v = "determinant" of [i j k; UI U2 U3; VI V2 V3].

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.

Fast Fourier Transform (FFT).
A factorization of the Fourier matrix Fn into e = log2 n matrices Si times a permutation. Each Si needs only nl2 multiplications, so Fnx and Fn1c can be computed with ne/2 multiplications. Revolutionary.

Full row rank r = m.
Independent rows, at least one solution to Ax = b, column space is all of Rm. Full rank means full column rank or full row rank.

Hypercube matrix pl.
Row n + 1 counts corners, edges, faces, ... of a cube in Rn.

Lucas numbers
Ln = 2,J, 3, 4, ... satisfy Ln = L n l +Ln 2 = A1 +A~, with AI, A2 = (1 ± /5)/2 from the Fibonacci matrix U~]' Compare Lo = 2 with Fo = O.

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.

Permutation matrix P.
There are n! orders of 1, ... , n. The n! P 's have the rows of I in those orders. P A puts the rows of A in the same order. P is even or odd (det P = 1 or 1) based on the number of row exchanges to reach I.

Saddle point of I(x}, ... ,xn ).
A point where the first derivatives of I are zero and the second derivative matrix (a2 II aXi ax j = Hessian matrix) is indefinite.

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

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

Spectral Theorem A = QAQT.
Real symmetric A has real A'S and orthonormal q's.

Spectrum of A = the set of eigenvalues {A I, ... , An}.
Spectral radius = max of IAi I.
