Review of Part II
Methods and Formulas
Basic Matrix Theory:
Identity matrix:
AI
=
A
,
IA
=
A
, and
I
v
=
v
Inverse matrix:
AA
−
1
=
I
and
A
−

A
=
I
Norm of a matrix:

A matrix may be singular or nonsingular. See Lecture 10.
Solving Process:
Gaussian Elimination produces LU decomposition
Row Pivoting
Back Substitution
Condition number:

A big condition number is bad; in engineering it usually results from poor design.
LU factorization:
PA
=
LU.
Solving steps:
Multiply by P:

Eigenvalues and eigenvectors:
A nonzero vector
v
is an eigenvector (
ev
) and a number
λ
is its eigenvalue (
ew
) if
A
v
=
λ
v
.
Characteristic equation: det(
A
−
λI
) = 0
Equation of the eigenvector: (
A

)
v
=

Complex ew’s:
Occur in conjugate pairs:
