Affine transformation
Tv = Av + Vo = linear transformation plus shift.

Associative Law (AB)C = A(BC).
Parentheses can be removed to leave ABC.

Back substitution.
Upper triangular systems are solved in reverse order Xn to Xl.

CayleyHamilton Theorem.
peA) = det(A  AI) has peA) = zero matrix.

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

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.

Diagonal matrix D.
dij = 0 if i # j. Blockdiagonal: zero outside square blocks Du.

Fibonacci numbers
0,1,1,2,3,5, ... satisfy Fn = Fnl + Fn 2 = (A7 A~)I()q A2). Growth rate Al = (1 + .J5) 12 is the largest eigenvalue of the Fibonacci matrix [ } A].

GaussJordan method.
Invert A by row operations on [A I] to reach [I AI].

GramSchmidt orthogonalization A = QR.
Independent columns in A, orthonormal columns in Q. Each column q j of Q is a combination of the first j columns of A (and conversely, so R is upper triangular). Convention: diag(R) > o.

Hilbert matrix hilb(n).
Entries HU = 1/(i + j 1) = Jd X i 1 xj1dx. Positive definite but extremely small Amin and large condition number: H is illconditioned.

Identity matrix I (or In).
Diagonal entries = 1, offdiagonal entries = 0.

Left nullspace N (AT).
Nullspace of AT = "left nullspace" of A because y T A = OT.

Linear combination cv + d w or L C jV j.
Vector addition and scalar multiplication.

Orthonormal vectors q 1 , ... , q n·
Dot products are q T q j = 0 if i =1= j and q T q i = 1. The matrix Q with these orthonormal columns has Q T Q = I. If m = n then Q T = Q 1 and q 1 ' ... , q n is an orthonormal basis for Rn : every v = L (v T q j )q j •

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.

Sum V + W of subs paces.
Space of all (v in V) + (w in W). Direct sum: V n W = to}.

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

Unitary matrix UH = U T = UI.
Orthonormal columns (complex analog of Q).

Volume of box.
The rows (or the columns) of A generate a box with volume I det(A) I.
