Cholesky factorization
A = CTC = (L.J]))(L.J]))T for positive definite A.

Complex conjugate
z = a  ib for any complex number z = a + ib. Then zz = Iz12.

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

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.

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].

Left nullspace N (AT).
Nullspace of AT = "left nullspace" of A because y T A = OT.

Markov matrix M.
All mij > 0 and each column sum is 1. Largest eigenvalue A = 1. If mij > 0, the columns of Mk approach the steady state eigenvector M s = s > O.

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).

Nullspace matrix N.
The columns of N are the n  r special solutions to As = O.

Orthogonal matrix Q.
Square matrix with orthonormal columns, so QT = Ql. Preserves length and angles, IIQxll = IIxll and (QX)T(Qy) = xTy. AlllAI = 1, with orthogonal eigenvectors. Examples: Rotation, reflection, permutation.

Particular solution x p.
Any solution to Ax = b; often x p has free variables = o.

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

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.

Right inverse A+.
If A has full row rank m, then A+ = AT(AAT)l has AA+ = 1m.

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.

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

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

Symmetric matrix A.
The transpose is AT = A, and aU = a ji. AI is also symmetric.
