This expansive textbook survival guide covers the following chapters and their solutions.

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

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

Condition number
cond(A) = c(A) = IIAIlIIAIII = amaxlamin. In Ax = b, the relative change Ilox III Ilx II is less than cond(A) times the relative change Ilob III lib IIĀ· Condition numbers measure the sensitivity of the output to change in the input.

Conjugate Gradient Method.
A sequence of steps (end of Chapter 9) to solve positive definite Ax = b by minimizing !x T Ax  x Tb over growing Krylov subspaces.

Eigenvalue A and eigenvector x.
Ax = AX with x#O so det(A  AI) = o.

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

Hankel matrix H.
Constant along each antidiagonal; hij depends on i + j.

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

Indefinite matrix.
A symmetric matrix with eigenvalues of both signs (+ and  ).

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.

Multiplication Ax
= Xl (column 1) + ... + xn(column n) = combination of columns.

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).

Projection p = a(aTblaTa) onto the line through a.
P = aaT laTa has rank l.

Semidefinite matrix A.
(Positive) semidefinite: all x T Ax > 0, all A > 0; A = any RT R.

Singular matrix A.
A square matrix that has no inverse: det(A) = o.

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.

Tridiagonal matrix T: tij = 0 if Ii  j I > 1.
T 1 has rank 1 above and below diagonal.

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.
