        Constructed by the call [A,b,x]= heat(1000)                          
      where heat is from Regularization Tools. The description of            
      heat from http://www2.imm.dtu.dk/~pch/Regutools/ is:                   
                  [A,b,x] = heat(n,kappa)                                    
      A first kind Volterra integral equation with [0,1] as                  
      integration interval.  The kernel is K(s,t) = k(s-t) with              
         k(t) = t^(-3/2)/(2*kappa*sqrt(pi))*exp(-1/(4*kappa^2*t)) .          
      Here, kappa controls the ill-conditioning of the matrix:               
         kappa = 5 gives a well-conditioned problem                          
         kappa = 1 gives an ill-conditioned problem.                         
      The default is kappa = 1.                                              
      An exact soltuion is constructed, and then the right-hand side         
      b is produced as b = A*x.

    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.
