I have a degree in biochemistry, and thus no formal training as far as programming is concerned.

I started off teaching myself Perl; about two years ago, working on my final thesis, I had to start learning Fortran. Currently I am doing my PhD thesis, with in a group that provides software for scientists.

comment SVD on set of equations containing redundancies
@J.M. Thank you so much! I have finally, after a couple of days, found the error (something to do with array indices). What a relief :) Thank you very much for your time and effort.

comment SVD on set of equations containing redundancies
@J.M. I get the singular values you mention, yet the final result is different. I use the routine given on p. 56 of the link from my question to compute it, which works fine if I use two equations only. Maybe there really is something wrong with my own code at some point. Must check again! What did you use to perform the calculation? And, by the way, thanks a lot for your help!

comment SVD on set of equations containing redundancies
@J.M. I'm doing that, yes. However, for the trivial example above the singular values are all much larger than what would be classified as 'tiny'. Do you this might be the problem?
