How the SVD Saves the Universe

Cleve Moler
Chief Mathematician

What is the matrix SVD? How did Spock use the SVD to save the Universe in the first Star Trek movie? How can you use the SVD to study the human gait, to find a date, to win elections, and to face Covid-19?

Cleve Moler is a former math professor, the author of the first MATLAB, a cofounder of MathWorks, and a SIAM visiting lecturer.
