PseudoInverse Matrix (G Dataflow)

Version:
    Last Modified: March 15, 2017

    Finds the pseudoinverse matrix of an input matrix by using singular value decomposition.

    Use this node when the Inverse Matrix node cannot compute the inverse of a matrix, such as for rectangular or singular matrices.

    datatype_icon

    matrix

    A rectangular matrix.

    This input accepts a 2D array of double-precision, floating point numbers or 2D array of complex double-precision, floating point numbers.

    This input also accepts square matrices, but Inverse Matrix can more efficiently calculate the actual inverse of a square matrix as long as the matrix is nonsingular.

    Default: Empty array

    datatype_icon

    error in

    Error conditions that occur before this node runs.

    The node responds to this input according to standard error behavior.

    Standard Error Behavior

    Many nodes provide an error in input and an error out output so that the node can respond to and communicate errors that occur while code is running. The value of error in specifies whether an error occurred before the node runs. Most nodes respond to values of error in in a standard, predictable way.

    error in does not contain an error error in contains an error
    If no error occurred before the node runs, the node begins execution normally.

    If no error occurs while the node runs, it returns no error. If an error does occur while the node runs, it returns that error information as error out.

    If an error occurred before the node runs, the node does not execute. Instead, it returns the error in value as error out.

    Default: No error

    datatype_icon

    tolerance

    A level such that the number of singular values greater than this level is the rank of the input matrix.

    If this input is negative, this node uses the following equation to determine the actual tolerance:

    tolerance = max( m , n ) * A * ε

    where

    • A represents the input matrix
    • m represents the number of rows in A
    • n represents the number of columns in A
    • A is the 2-norm of A
    • ε is the smallest floating point number that can be represented by type double

    Default: -1

    datatype_icon

    pseudoinverse matrix

    The pseudoinverse matrix of the input matrix.

    datatype_icon

    error out

    Error information.

    The node produces this output according to standard error behavior.

    Algorithm for Calculating the PseudoInverse Matrix

    The m-by-n matrix A+ is called the pseudoinverse of matrix A if A+ satisfies the following four Moore-Penrose conditions:

    • A A+ A = A
    • A+ A A+ = A+
    • A A+ is a symmetric matrix
    • A+ A is a symmetric matrix

    This node computes the pseudoinverse matrix A+ using the SVD algorithm. For example, assume the singular value decomposition of A equals USV*. Then A+ = VS+U*. You can calculate the pseudoinverse matrix of a diagonal matrix S by taking the reciprocal of each element on the diagonal. When the elements are smaller than the tolerance, this node sets the reciprocals to zero.

    The pseudoinverse provides a least-squares solution to a system of linear equations. For example, for a linear system Ax = b, the following equation is the least-squares solution: x = A+b.
