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.

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

Cofactor Cij.
Remove row i and column j; multiply the determinant by (I)i + j •

Commuting matrices AB = BA.
If diagonalizable, they share n eigenvectors.

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.

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

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!).

Graph G.
Set of n nodes connected pairwise by m edges. A complete graph has all n(n  1)/2 edges between nodes. A tree has only n  1 edges and no closed loops.

Inverse matrix AI.
Square matrix with AI A = I and AAl = I. No inverse if det A = 0 and rank(A) < n and Ax = 0 for a nonzero vector x. The inverses of AB and AT are B1 AI and (AI)T. Cofactor formula (Al)ij = Cji! detA.

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.

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.

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

Orthogonal subspaces.
Every v in V is orthogonal to every w in W.

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

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

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

Rotation matrix
R = [~ CS ] rotates the plane by () and R 1 = RT rotates back by (). Eigenvalues are eiO and eiO , eigenvectors are (1, ±i). c, s = cos (), sin ().

Similar matrices A and B.
Every B = MI AM has the same eigenvalues as A.

Skewsymmetric matrix K.
The transpose is K, since Kij = Kji. Eigenvalues are pure imaginary, eigenvectors are orthogonal, eKt is an orthogonal matrix.

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