FilledSmallSquareQRDecomposition[m] yields the QR decomposition for a numerical matrix m. The result is a list q, r, where q is an orthogonal matrix and r is an upper triangular matrix.

FilledSmallSquare The original matrix m is equal to Conjugate[Transpose[q]] . r.

FilledSmallSquare For non-square matrices, q is row orthonormal.

FilledSmallSquare The matrix r has zeros for all entries below the leading diagonal.

FilledSmallSquareQRDecomposition[m, Pivoting -> True] yields a list q, r, p where p is a permutation matrix such that m . p is equal to Conjugate[Transpose[q]] . r.

FilledSmallSquare See The Mathematica Book: Section 3.7.10.

FilledSmallSquare Implementation Notes: see section A.9.4.
