TEST_LLS Linear Least Squares Test Problems

TEST_LLS, a MATLAB library which implements linear least squares (LLS) test problems which seek a vector x which minimizes the error in the rectangular linear system A*x=b.

Some linear least squares problems include constraints on the data, such as requiring that every entry of X be positive. This library only contains unconstrained problems. For such problems, the task is typically to find a vector X which minimizes the Euclidean norm of the residual r=Ax-b, or, in cases where multiple minimizers exist, to find the minimizer of minimal Euclidean norm.

Languages:

TEST_LLS is available in a C version and a C++ version and a FORTRAN90 version and a MATLAB version and a Python version.
