Basis for V.
Independent vectors VI, ... , v d whose linear combinations give each vector in V as v = CIVI + ... + CdVd. V has many bases, each basis gives unique c's. A vector space has many bases!

Column space C (A) =
space of all combinations of the columns of A.

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

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

Cross product u xv in R3:
Vector perpendicular to u and v, length Ilullllvlll sin el = area of parallelogram, u x v = "determinant" of [i j k; UI U2 U3; VI V2 V3].

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.

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

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

Free columns of A.
Columns without pivots; these are combinations of earlier columns.

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

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

Normal equation AT Ax = ATb.
Gives the least squares solution to Ax = b if A has full rank n (independent columns). The equation says that (columns of A)·(b  Ax) = o.

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

Pascal matrix
Ps = pascal(n) = the symmetric matrix with binomial entries (i1~;2). Ps = PL Pu all contain Pascal's triangle with det = 1 (see Pascal in the index).

Rank one matrix A = uvT f=. O.
Column and row spaces = lines cu and cv.

Rayleigh quotient q (x) = X T Ax I x T x for symmetric A: Amin < q (x) < Amax.
Those extremes are reached at the eigenvectors x for Amin(A) and Amax(A).

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 ().

Special solutions to As = O.
One free variable is Si = 1, other free variables = o.

Stiffness matrix
If x gives the movements of the nodes, K x gives the internal forces. K = ATe A where C has spring constants from Hooke's Law and Ax = stretching.

Trace of A
= sum of diagonal entries = sum of eigenvalues of A. Tr AB = Tr BA.
