Suppose a matrix X of size n x p is given, n>p, with p linearly independent columns. Can it be guaranteed that there exists a matrix A of size p x p that converts columns of X to orthonormal columns. In other words, is there an A, such that Y=XA, and Y^TY=I, where I is an p x p identity matrix.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
