Unfortunately, such a and b do not exist, so we try to ﬁnd another vector v in
R that is a best approximation of v in the following sense: ˆ
||y − M v|| ≤ ||y − M x|| for all x ∈ R2 .
If you take the time to do the calculation, you will see that, indeed,

||y − M v||
is equivalent to minimizing the least-square error, as this error is positive
and the square root is a monotone function.
Roadmap. From now, we will see how to ﬁnd such a and b (if we work in
R2 ), and more generally how to ﬁnd a best least-square approximation for a
linear system in Rn that...
