2: Given a set of lines, we are interested in finding the point that lies closest to all the lines. This point, obtained using an LS solution, is useful in many situations. Notice that the LS solution lies close to the average of the pairwise intersection points of the lines. 5). , optimize over a given family of curves. We will shortly see that again an LS solution can be employed to obtain such a robust fitting in the presence of measurement noise. 3). However, for most geometry processing applications, we are interested in the underlying surface, and not just in any particular point sample of the surface.

When we have more equations than unknowns, we have an overdetermined system of equations. Each of the equations typically contains some noise, or simply inaccurate observations. , we want to solve the following optimization: min Ax − b x 2 = min(x A Ax − 2x A b + b b) . 10) From Chapter 2 we know that Ax = x1 a1 + . . + xn an , where the ai are the column vectors of A and the xi are the components of the vector x. 10) we are looking for a vector in the subspace spanned by the columns of A that is closest to the vector b, which is likely outside of the subspace.

How can we find eigenvalues? We look for λ for which there is a nontrivial solution to the equation Ax = λx. That is Ax = λx ⇔ Ax − λx = 0 ⇔ Ax − λIx = 0 ⇔ (A − λI)x = 0 . So, a nontrivial solution exists if and only if det(A − λI) = 0. The expression det(A − λI) can be developed into a polynomial of degree n called the characteristic polynomial of A. The roots of this characteristic polynomial are the eigenvalues of A. Therefore, there are always n eigenvalues (some or all of which may be complex).
