1. ### What is the goal of the problem?

Question: Correct Answer: U and VT in code:
2. ### Lecture 4 - Headaches from math - Saving lives with the SVD

Here we review the mathematics that goes into CT scanners and the inversion of the Radon transform. The approach given here uses the Moore-Penrose pseudo inverse to invert a tall and skinny matrix. We can get a nice representation of the pseudo inverse by using the singular value decomposition (SVD)
3. ### Lecture 3 - How SVDs are used in Facial Recognition Software

This video builds on the SVD concepts of the previous videos, where I talk about the algorithm from the paper Eigenfaces for Recognition. These tools are used everywhere from law enforcement (such as tracking down the rioters at the Capitol) to unlocking your cell phone.
4. ### Lecture 2 - Understanding Everything from Data - The SVD

In this video I give an introduction to the singular value decomposition, one of the key tools to learning from data. The SVD allows us to assemble data into a matrix, and then to find the key or "principle" components of the data, which will allow us to represent the entire data set with only a few
5. ### Lecture 1 - Data Driven Methods in Dynamical Systems

This is an introductory video for my class on data driven methods in dynamical systems theory. We will cover topics including SVDs, FFTs, DMD, PCA, and many other acronyms.
6. ### MHB Solving Overdetermined Matrices Without SVD

Attached, you will find a formula-based solution for an overdetermined logical matrix pseudoinverse. This simple formula gives the same result as the Moore-Penrose method. Does anyone know of any other overdetermined matrices that can be solved without using SVD methods?

Here is the website: http://www.columbia.edu/itc/applied/e3101/SVD_applications.pdf I need help on understanding the second part of the document, page 13 onwards. On page 15, it showed 3 data sets, relative elevation as a function of kilometers across axis, however at page 16, the author...
12. ### A reasonable analogy for understanding similar matrices?

I don't really feel that I understand what it means for two matrices to be similar. Of course, I understand the need to understand ideas on their own terms, and that in math analogies are very much frowned upon. In asking if you know of any "reasonable" analogies for what it means for two...
13. ### Underdetermined vs Overdetermined Systems

I'm trying to create a model which is of the form y = (a0 + a1l)[b0+MΣm=1 bmcos(mx-αm)] [c0 + NΣn=1 cn cos(nz-βn)] In the above system, l,x and z are independent variables and y is the dependent variable. The a, b and c terms are the unknowns. To solve for these unknowns, I have two separate...
14. ### SVD of a reduced rank matrix still has non-zero U and V?

In a given matrix A, the singular value decomposition (SVD), yields A=USV. Now let's make dimension reduction of the matrix by keeping only one column vector from U, one singular value from S and one row vector from V`. Then do another SVD of the resulted rank reduced matrix Ar. Now, if Ar is...
15. ### Why are all the singular values of A equal to 1?

Problem: Suppose u1,...un and v1,...vn are orthonormal bases for Rn. Construct the matrix A that transforms each vj into uj to give Av1=u1,...Avn=un. Answer key says A=UV^T since all σj=1. Why is all σj=1?

### Unlocking the Power of SVD in Data Processing: Insights and Examples

Hi PF! Can you please tell me why it is beneficial to use SVD in data processing? My understanding is, given a lot of data, if we arrange it in a matrix, we can filter out the important pieces from the unimportant pieces. Evidently, any matrix ##A## can be decomposed into ##U \Sigma V^T##...
17. ### SVD, PCA, multi dimensional visualization

I just did some quick searches for open source multi dimensional data visualization, but can't find what I'm looking for. Before I spend time coding it up, I want to see if some one's done it already. The data will be points with multi (n>20) dimensional coordinates 1) I want to be...
18. ### SVD Low-Rank Approximation Algorithm

I'm looking for a concise description of an algorithm for low-rank approximation via SVD. I've seen a number of articles referring to Lanczos method and finding eigenvalues but nothing going all the way to determining all the matrices involved in the low-rank SVD of a given matrix. Any...
19. ### Linear Systems with pseudoinverse matrix using SVD

Hi! I have a question concerning solving a system of linear equations. I know that the pseudoinverse matrix by using SVD is useful for this, but haven't gotten the pieces together yet. Let's assume I have this system of linear equations with each equation having one 3-component vector (V1)...
20. ### MATLAB Learn How to Efficiently Compress Color Images with SVD in Matlab

22. ### Use SVD to show rank(XGY) = rank (G)

1. Use the Singular Value Decomposition (SVD) of G to prove: rank(XGY^T) = rank (G) Given that X and Y are two full column-rank matrices, but may not have the same rank. 2. The attempt at a solution \begin{eqnarray*} XGY^T & = & X(U\Sigma V^T)Y^T \\ & = & XU \left(...
23. ### What are the requirements for SVD to work?

Dear fellows, during my internship I've stumbled over a problem of analysis. To cut things short some pseudoinverses have to be calculated. For one of them it does not work, s.t. A'*A \neq I. I just wondered about the requirements to find a pseudoinverse. One of the eigenvalues is zero...
24. ### Finding SVD of Matrix H: Summing H1 and H2's SVD Values?

I'm just checking my work; please correct me if I'm wrong. Also, if someone has a suggestion for an intro book that covers SVD of operators, please let me know! I'm not fully confident with my procedure for general problems yet, so the more info, the better. Many thanks. Homework Statement...
26. ### SVD vs Eigenvalue Decompositon (Diagonalizability)

Okay, I know that if I can't get n linearly independent eigenvectors out of a matrix A (∈ℝnxn), it is not diagonalizable (and that some necessary conditions for diagonalizability in this regard may be being symmetric and/or having distinct eigenvalues.) This is how things are for the usual...

Semester is over but still want to figure this out Prob 8 on here: http://www.math.uic.edu/~akers/310PracticeFinal.pdf When trying to SVD that matrix one of the U or V matrix turns out to be zero but the answer key has just the general formula for SVD can anyone explain thanks

### Using SVD to determine the redundancy of a fit.

I have a project I am doing for a professor and unfortunately I cannot get ahold of him to help me out, so I figured I'd ask you guys. Of course, I tried to ask The Google about this first and didn't get anywhere. Here is what I am trying to do: The part I am having trouble with is using SVD...
30. ### Using SVD to solve a set of equations.

Homework Statement This is not a homework problem. I encountered this while working with total least squares for the first time. Ultimately a point is reached where Az=0 must be solved. z is of the form [x,1]^{T}. Let A be nxm, z be mx1. Suppose A is rank deficient by one. So the SVD of A...

32. ### Geometric interpretation of SVD

Ax = U \Sigma V^T x (A is an m by n matrix) I understand the first two steps, 1) V^T takes x and expresses it in a new basis in R^n (since x is already in R^n, this is simply a rotation) 2) \Sigma takes the result of (1) and stretches it The third step is where I'm a bit...
33. ### How to accelerate the SVD algorithm?

I've written a program in c language in terms of the GR SVD algorithm. To my dispointment,its performance is worse than the svd of matlab. I wish to get to know which algorithm the MATLAB used. Who may tell me? Thanks.
34. ### MATLAB Complex-Symmetric Matrix SVD with Matlab: Conjugate Relationship Not Seen

For a square, complex-symmetric matrix ##A##, the columns of the right and left matrices ##U## and ##V## of the singular value decomposition should be complex conjugates, since for A=A^T, A\in{\mathbb C}^{N\times N}, A = U\Sigma V^H, A^T=(U\Sigma V^H)^T so that U\Sigma V^H=(V^H)^T\Sigma U^T...
