Circulant matrix C.
Constant diagonals wrap around as in cyclic shift S. Every circulant is Col + CIS + ... + Cn_lSn  l . Cx = convolution c * x. Eigenvectors in F.

Complete solution x = x p + Xn to Ax = b.
(Particular x p) + (x n in nullspace).

Diagonalizable matrix A.
Must have n independent eigenvectors (in the columns of S; automatic with n different eigenvalues). Then SI AS = A = eigenvalue matrix.

Dot product = Inner product x T y = XI Y 1 + ... + Xn Yn.
Complex dot product is x T Y . Perpendicular vectors have x T y = O. (AB)ij = (row i of A)T(column j of B).

Fourier matrix F.
Entries Fjk = e21Cijk/n give orthogonal columns FT F = nI. Then y = Fe is the (inverse) Discrete Fourier Transform Y j = L cke21Cijk/n.

Full column rank r = n.
Independent columns, N(A) = {O}, no free variables.

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

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

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.

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

Multiplicities AM and G M.
The algebraic multiplicity A M of A is the number of times A appears as a root of det(A  AI) = O. The geometric multiplicity GM is the number of independent eigenvectors for A (= dimension of the eigenspace).

Normal matrix.
If N NT = NT N, then N has orthonormal (complex) eigenvectors.

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

Positive definite matrix A.
Symmetric matrix with positive eigenvalues and positive pivots. Definition: x T Ax > 0 unless x = O. Then A = LDLT with diag(D» O.

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.

Rank r (A)
= number of pivots = dimension of column space = dimension of row space.

Row picture of Ax = b.
Each equation gives a plane in Rn; the planes intersect at x.

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

Toeplitz matrix.
Constant down each diagonal = timeinvariant (shiftinvariant) filter.

Transpose matrix AT.
Entries AL = Ajj. AT is n by In, AT A is square, symmetric, positive semidefinite. The transposes of AB and AI are BT AT and (AT)I.
