cgne, a MATLAB code which implements the conjugate gradient method (CG) for the normal equations, that is, a method for solving a system of linear equations of the form A*x=b, where the matrix A is not symmetric positive definite (SPD). In this case, it is attempted to set up and solve the normal equations A'*A*x=A'*b.
