LS solutions owe their popularity to the fact that they can be solved using linear systems. 4), let us take a careful look at it. Do you see a problem with this formulation? Suppose Least-Squares Solutions 35 the point sets are given with respect to another coordinate system. 4 (right). Thus, in the current form, our solution depends on the choice of coordinate system. This should not be the case. The best-fitting line should only depend on the arrangement of the points, and remain unchanged with respect to the point set as long as its arrangement remains fixed.

20) Least-Squares Solutions Thus n is one of the eigenvectors of the covariance matrix C (see Chapter 4). 19), the objective function reduces to simply λ. , the eigenvector corresponding to the smallest ¯. eigenvalue. Once we have n, we obtain d as d = −n p 45 This page intentionally left blank Chapter 4 PCA and SVD Olga Sorkine-Hornung In this chapter, we introduce two related tools from linear algebra that have become true workhorses in countless areas of scientific computing: principal component analysis (PCA) and singular value decomposition (SVD).

We stop iterating once the process converges. 6 (right). Notice that there are many different choices for weight functions that lead to similar behavior. The idea of weighted LS is also applicable for a weighted leastsquares solution. Recall that, corresponding to the n unknowns {xi } stacked together as vector x, we had m equations. , nonnegative value wi . Thus we have m weights. 14) where W is an m×m diagonal matrix with the respective diagonal entries being the weights {wi }. Least-Squares Solutions 41 Local surface fitting to 3D points We have already seen how LS fitting is useful for fitting a polynomial to a set of points coming from a curve.
