Singular Value Decomposition in SciPy

#python #scipy #svd

SciPy contains two methods to compute the singular value decomposition (SVD) of a matrix: scipy.linalg.svd and scipy.sparse.linalg.svds. In this post I'll compare both methods for the task of computing the full SVD of a large dense matrix.

The first method, scipy.linalg.svd, is perhaps …
