- scipy.optimize.nnls(A, b)[source]¶
Solve argmin_x || Ax - b ||_2 for x>=0. This is a wrapper for a FORTAN non-negative least squares solver.
A : ndarray
Matrix A as shown above.
b : ndarray
Right-hand side vector.
x : ndarray
rnorm : float
The residual, || Ax-b ||_2.
The FORTRAN code was published in the book below. The algorithm is an active set method. It solves the KKT (Karush-Kuhn-Tucker) conditions for the non-negative least squares problem.
