The norm adopted for vectors is the one induced by the usual inner product in C^. 15 (Singular values of a matrix) Let A he a n x m complex matrix. The square roots ai{A)^i — l , - - - m of the eigenvalues of A^A are called singular values of A. • Notice that the singular values of A are real and nonnegative, since A'^A is a hermitian and positive semidefinite matrix. Of course, m—rank [A] singular values of A are in fact zero.
