Paper Abstract

Described in this paper is a highly-parallel algorithm (referred to as the Permutation Algorithm) for computing the singular value decomposition (SVD) of a matrix. This algorithm is an extension of an earlier algorithm developed by Brent and Luk. The Permutation Algorithm is unique in that it relies heavily on the repeated use of the more fundamental matrix-matrix multiply operation. Therefore, high-speed numerical optical processors currently being developed for performing the matrix-matrix multiply operation appear well suited for implementing the Permutation Algorithm as well.
