Dear group,

i have the following problem. For a given a NxM (e.g. 3000x600) matrix A i
get a matrix Q (MxN) and R (MxM) after the QRDecomposition. But i would
like to get the full decomposition with a matrix QF (NxN) and RF (NxM) where RF
contains only zero lines below the line with index M. I'm especially
interrested in the last N-M lines in QF which create the zero lines in RF.
At the moment i use QRDecomposition and append then N-M random lines to
the matrix Q. With this new matrix i go into the routine GramSchmidt and extract the last N-M
lines from the result. But this is very slow and i'm not sure if it will
always work? Are there any suggestions or hints?

best regards and thank you
