First, isn't the line for ID simply the identity matrix? Yes. Second, I can't really understand the line for row.... See this for a discussion about the max/key/lambda interaction. To answer "what is i?", its the argument to the lambda function, i could equivalently be x for foo. (For...

Your original Matlab code was (Matlab has 1-based indexing): for k = 1:n - 1 rows = k + 1:n A(rows, k) = A(rows, k) / A(k, k) A(rows, rows) = A(rows, rows) - A(rows, k) * A(k, rows) end What rows = k + 1:n this does is that...

Cannot you just wrap your matrix arithmetic in a small function of your own? recover_matrix_from_svd <- function(svd) { score <- 0 for(i in 1:ncol(svd$u)) { score <- score + svd$u[,i] %*% t(svd$v[,i]) * svd$d[i] } score } alternatively, the diag function is very useful for this. Using it results in...

That statement considers the overall complexity of Cholesky decomposition including (an implementation of) inverse square root, and is what is left of a section that detailed the whole algorithm on a DSP. I do see now that out of context the statement is misleading. So, to compute the term within...
