    Notes:

      where foxgood is from Regularization Tools. The description of 
      foxgood from http://www2.imm.dtu.dk/~pch/Regutools/ is:        
                                                                     
                        [A,b,x] = foxgood(n)                         
                                                                     
      This is a model problem which does not satisfy the             
      discrete Picard condition for the small singular values.       
      The problem was first used by Fox & Goodwin.

    Entries 5 through 14 in the table of matrix properties and the singular
    value plot were created using SJsingular code. The other plots
    and statistics are produced using utilities from the SuiteSparse package.
