Subject: "Nice" matrix with orthonormal columns From: Andy Date: 26 Jun, 2013 16:08:08 Message: 1 of 4 
I assume the following is not builtin functionality, but MATLAB has enough builtin matrix functions that perhaps there is a slick way to do this which I'm just not seeing. I'd like to be able to create a matrix of a given size whose columns are orthonormal and whose entries are "not bad" (my hope is rationals). Any ideas?
