functions in matrix.i  S
SVdec

s= SVdec(a, u, vt)
or s= SVdec(a, u, vt, full=1)
performs the singular value decomposition of the mbyn matrix A:
A = (U(,+) * SIGMA(+,))(,+) * VT(+,)
where U is an mbym orthogonal matrix, VT is an nbyn orthogonal
matrix, and SIGMA is an mbyn matrix which is zero except for its
min(m,n) diagonal elements. These diagonal elements are the return
value of the function, S. The returned S is always arranged in
order of descending absolute value. U(,1:min(m,n)) are the left
singular vectors corresponding to the min(m,n) elements of S;
VT(1:min(m,n),) are the right singular vectors. (The original A
matrix maps a right singular vector onto the corresponding left
singular vector, stretched by a factor of the singular value.)
Note that U and VT are strictly outputs; if you don't need them,
they need not be present in the calling sequence.
By default, U will be an mbymin(m,n) matrix, and V will be
a min(m,n)byn matrix (i.e. only the singular vextors are returned,
not the full orthogonal matrices). Set the FULL keyword to a
nonzero value to get the full mbym and nbyn matrices.
On rare occasions, the routine may fail; if it does, the
first SVinfo values of the returned S are incorrect. Hence,
the external variable SVinfo will be 0 after a successful call
to SVdec. If SVinfo>0, then external SVe contains the superdiagonal
elements of the bidiagonal matrix whose diagonal is the returned
S, and that bidiagonal matrix is equal to (U(+,)*A(+,))(,+) * V(+,).

SVsolve

SVsolve(a, b)
or SVsolve(a, b, rcond)
or SVsolve(a, b, rcond, which=which)
returns the solution x (in a least squares sense described below) of
the matrix equation:
A(,+)*x(+) = B
If A is an mbyn matrix (i.e. m equations in n unknowns), then B
must have length m, and the returned x will have length n.
If nm, the system is underdetermined  many solutions are possible
 the returned x has minimum L2 norm among all solutions
SVsolve works by singular value decomposition, therefore it is
immune to failure due to singularity of the A matrix. The optional
RCOND argument defaults to 1.0e9; singular values less than RCOND
times the largest singular value (absolute value) will be set to 0.0.
If RCOND<=0.0, machine precision is used. The effective rank of the
matrix is returned as the external variable SVrank.
You can examine the details of the SVD by calling the SVdec routine,
which returns the singular vectors as well as the singular values.

B may have additional dimensions, in which case the returned x
will have the same additional dimensions. The WHICH argument
(default 1) controls which dimension of B takes part in the matrix
solve. See QRsolve or LUsolve for a complete discussion.
