### Robust algorithm for $2 \times 2$ SVD

What is a simple algorithm for computing the SVD of $2 \times 2$ matrices? Ideally, I'd like a numerically robust algorithm, but I'll like to see both simple and not-so-simple implementations. C code ...

### Inverse iteration to find the null singular vector of a rank-deficient matrix

I have an $n \times n$ unsymmetric matrix $A$ that results from the discretization of an ill-posed Poisson problem, and thus is rank-deficient with null space of dimension one. I want to compute just ...
