I see a couple of problems here. First, there seems to be confusion between the mxn matrix B (which you assigned to the variable $matrix) and the diagonal matrix in the decomposition (which you assigned to the variable $b).

Secondly, the diagonal result in $b is returned in the form of a single row. It must be converted to a diagonal matrix before you can work on it.

I would do something like this instead:

my $mt = transpose($matrix); my $m2 = $mt x $matrix; my $m2i = $m2->inv; my $psuedo = $m2i x $mt;

You will only need svd if the m2 matrix is singular or ill-conditioned. It will allow you to "fix" any near-zeros on the diagonal.

to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
