Singular Value Decomposition *versus* Principal Component Analysis

*SVD meets PCA*, by Cleve Moler

MATLAB News & Notes, 2006, Cleve’s Corner

“The Wikipedia pages on SVD and PCA are quite good and contain a number of useful links, although not to each other.”

%relationship of pca to svd m=3; n=7; A = randn(m,n); [coef,score,latent] = pca(A); X = A - mean(A); [U,S,V] = svd(X,'econ'); % U vs. score rho = rank(X); sense = sign(score).*sign(U*S(:,1:rho)); %account for negated left singular vector sum(sum(abs(score - U*S(:,1:rho).*sense))) % S vs. latent sum(abs(latent - diag(S(:,1:rho)).^2/(m-1))) % V vs. coef sense2 = sign(coef).*sign(V(:,1:rho)); %account for corresponding negated right singular vector sum(sum(abs(coef - V(:,1:rho).*sense2)))
