Exponential eAt = I + At + (At)2 12! + ...
has derivative AeAt; eAt u(O) solves u' = Au.

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.

Free variable Xi.
Column i has no pivot in elimination. We can give the n  r free variables any values, then Ax = b determines the r pivot variables (if solvable!).

Independent vectors VI, .. " vk.
No combination cl VI + ... + qVk = zero vector unless all ci = O. If the v's are the columns of A, the only solution to Ax = 0 is x = o.

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

Kronecker product (tensor product) A ® B.
Blocks aij B, eigenvalues Ap(A)Aq(B).

lAII = l/lAI and IATI = IAI.
The big formula for det(A) has a sum of n! terms, the cofactor formula uses determinants of size n  1, volume of box = I det( A) I.

Left inverse A+.
If A has full column rank n, then A+ = (AT A)I AT has A+ A = In.

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

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).

Multiplier eij.
The pivot row j is multiplied by eij and subtracted from row i to eliminate the i, j entry: eij = (entry to eliminate) / (jth pivot).

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.

Nullspace N (A)
= All solutions to Ax = O. Dimension n  r = (# columns)  rank.

Pivot.
The diagonal entry (first nonzero) at the time when a row is used in elimination.

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.

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

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

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.
