I noticed a difference between the linear least square solutions in Python
and Matlab. I understand that if the system is underdetermined the solution
is not going to be unique, nevertheless I would like figure out the
algorithm Matlab is using, since it seems "better" to me. For example, let's
say I have a Matrix
2 1 0
A = 1 1 1 and b = (0,1)'
While Matlab yields (0,0,1)' as the solution to A\b, scipy's result for
Any ideas, how Matlab's A\b is implemented?
