We developed a QR decomposition algorithm, based on the orthogonalisation process of Gram-Schmidt in a series of posts here, here, here, and here. Let’s have a look how good this algorithm performs against built-in implementations from julia and other programming languages.
Problem Formulation We already discussed QR decompositions and showed that using the modified formulation of Gram Schmidt significantly improves the accuracy of the results. However, there is still an error of about $10^3 M_\varepsilon$ (where $M_\varepsilon$ is the machine epsilon) when using the modified Gram Schmidt as base algorithm for the orthogonalisation.
Floating point computations on computers may behave differently than one might expect. Every software developer should be aware of these since computed results may be off by orders of magnitude in the worst case.
It is possible to compress/inpaint images from very little data. In order to obtain reconstructions that are comparable to the original image it is necessary to optimize the underlying interpolation data.
