Key Math Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
• 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.

• Cayley-Hamilton Theorem.

peA) = det(A - AI) has peA) = zero matrix.

• Column picture of Ax = b.

The vector b becomes a combination of the columns of A. The system is solvable only when b is in the column space C (A).

• Covariance matrix:E.

When random variables Xi have mean = average value = 0, their covariances "'£ ij are the averages of XiX j. With means Xi, the matrix :E = mean of (x - x) (x - x) T is positive (semi)definite; :E is diagonal if the Xi are independent.

• Diagonal matrix D.

dij = 0 if i #- j. Block-diagonal: zero outside square blocks Du.

• Diagonalization

A = S-1 AS. A = eigenvalue matrix and S = eigenvector matrix of A. A must have n independent eigenvectors to make S invertible. All Ak = SA k S-I.

• Distributive Law

A(B + C) = AB + AC. Add then multiply, or mUltiply then add.

• Elimination matrix = Elementary matrix Eij.

The identity matrix with an extra -eij in the i, j entry (i #- j). Then Eij A subtracts eij times row j of A from row i.

• Free columns of A.

Columns without pivots; these are combinations of earlier columns.

• 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!).

• Independent vectors VI, .. " vk.

No combination cl VI + ... + qVk = zero vector unless all ci = O. If the v's are the columns of A, the only solution to Ax = 0 is x = o.

• Jordan form 1 = M- 1 AM.

If A has s independent eigenvectors, its "generalized" eigenvector matrix M gives 1 = diag(lt, ... , 1s). The block his Akh +Nk where Nk has 1 's on diagonall. Each block has one eigenvalue Ak and one eigenvector.

• Length II x II.

Square root of x T x (Pythagoras in n dimensions).

• 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.

• Nilpotent matrix N.

Some power of N is the zero matrix, N k = o. The only eigenvalue is A = 0 (repeated n times). Examples: triangular matrices with zero diagonal.

• Nullspace N (A)

= All solutions to Ax = O. Dimension n - r = (# columns) - rank.

• Projection matrix P onto subspace S.

Projection p = P b is the closest point to b in S, error e = b - Pb is perpendicularto S. p 2 = P = pT, eigenvalues are 1 or 0, eigenvectors are in S or S...L. If columns of A = basis for S then P = A (AT A) -1 AT.

• Pseudoinverse A+ (Moore-Penrose inverse).

The n by m matrix that "inverts" A from column space back to row space, with N(A+) = N(AT). A+ A and AA+ are the projection matrices onto the row space and column space. Rank(A +) = rank(A).

• Reflection matrix (Householder) Q = I -2uuT.

Unit vector u is reflected to Qu = -u. All x intheplanemirroruTx = o have Qx = x. Notice QT = Q-1 = Q.

• Toeplitz matrix.

Constant down each diagonal = time-invariant (shift-invariant) filter.
