Computing the singular value decomposition of a product of two matrices. (English) Zbl 0607.65013
An algorithm for computing the singular value decomposition (SVD) of a product of two general matrices is given. SVD of an $$m\times n$$ matrix A has the form $$A=U\Sigma V^ T$$, where U and V are orthogonal matrices of order m and n respectively, and $$\Sigma$$ is an $$m\times n$$ nonnegative diagonal matrix. The algorithm is based on a Jacobi-like method due to Kogbetliantz and it is described in detail. The authors develop the basic method by using plane rotations applied to the two matrices separately. A triangular variant to compute the SVD is also given. The paper concludes with a discussion of implementation details and some test results.
