A Linear Algebra History Question?

Posted 10 years ago

Who would you credit for discovering the SVD method?

Who would have first coded SVD?

Does 1984 Waterloo ring a bell? (That was the indirect origin of my first copy on reel to reel in C, but I do not know who wrote it.)

The History section strikes me as likely to be accurate. Also it has to predate 1984 since it was earlier in EISPACK.
