Abstract : Two Algol procedures are given which are useful in linear least squares problems. The first procedure computes the singular value decomposition by first reducing the rectangular matrix A to a bidiagonal matrix, and then computing the singular values of the bidiagonal matrix by a variant of the QR algorithm. The second procedure yields the components for the linear least squares solution when it is desirable to determine a vector X tilde for which norm (Axb) sub 2 = min. (Author)
