test_lls
test_lls,
a MATLAB code 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=Axb, or, in cases where multiple minimizers exist,
to find the minimizer of minimal Euclidean norm.
TEST_LLS requires access to a compiled copy of the R8LIB library.
