## SYNOPSIS

function [u, s, v, flag] = svds (a, k, sigma, opts)

## DESCRIPTION

```% -*- texinfo -*-
% @deftypefn {Function File} {@var{s} =} svds (@var{a})
% @deftypefnx {Function File} {@var{s} =} svds (@var{a}, @var{k})
% @deftypefnx {Function File} {@var{s} =} svds (@var{a}, @var{k}, @var{sigma})
% @deftypefnx {Function File} {@var{s} =} svds (@var{a}, @var{k}, @var{sigma}, @var{opts})
% @deftypefnx {Function File} {[@var{u}, @var{s}, @var{v}, @var{flag}] =} svds (@dots{})
%
% Find a few singular values of the matrix @var{a}. The singular values
% are calculated using
%
% @example
% @group
% [@var{m}, @var{n}] = size(@var{a})
% @var{s} = eigs([sparse(@var{m}, @var{m}), @var{a}; @dots{}
%                 @var{a}', sparse(@var{n}, @var{n})])
% @end group
% @end example
%
% The eigenvalues returned by @code{eigs} correspond to the singular
% values of @var{a}. The number of singular values to calculate is given
% by @var{k}, whose default value is 6.
%
% The argument @var{sigma} can be used to specify which singular values
% to find. @var{sigma} can be either the string 'L', the default, in
% which case the largest singular values of @var{a} are found. Otherwise
% @var{sigma} should be a real scalar, in which case the singular values
% closest to @var{sigma} are found. Note that for relatively small values
% of @var{sigma}, there is the chance that the requested number of singular
% values are not returned. In that case @var{sigma} should be increased.
%
% If @var{opts} is given, then it is a structure that defines options
% that @code{svds} will pass to @var{eigs}. The possible fields of this
% structure are therefore determined by @code{eigs}. By default three
% fields of this structure are set by @code{svds}.
%
% @table @code
% @item tol
% The required convergence tolerance for the singular values. @code{eigs}
% is passed @var{tol} divided by @code{sqrt(2)}. The default value is
% 1e-10.
%
% @item maxit
% The maximum number of iterations. The defaut is 300.
%
% @item disp
% The level of diagnostic printout. If @code{disp} is 0 then there is no
% printout. The default value is 0.
% @end table
%
% If more than one output argument is given, then @code{svds} also
% calculates the left and right singular vectors of @var{a}. @var{flag}
% is used to signal the convergence of @code{svds}. If @code{svds}
% converges to the desired tolerance, then @var{flag} given by
%
% @example
% @group
% norm (@var{a} * @var{v} - @var{u} * @var{s}, 1) <= @dots{}
%         @var{tol} * norm (@var{a}, 1)
% @end group
% @end example
%
% will be zero.
% @end deftypefn
% @seealso{eigs}```
