The Singular Value Decomposition, or SVD, is the Swiss Army knife of technical computation. Its wide variety of applications includes principal component analysis, the foundation of modern data analytics. A pioneering computer graphics film made in 1976 at Los Alamos displays what was then a newly discovered algorithm for computing the SVD. Hollywood borrowed the graphics. However, MATLAB® and the SVD were not enough to save one of the biggest failures in the history of Silicon Valley.
