Wow, thank you very much! Are you aware of a good text where i can
find infos
that allow me to speed up computation (like the method you pointed to
me on how to compute ATA on the fly)?

However, send me the source code. I am interested in the faster way to
do this...

A question: is Cholesky decomposition affected by the ill-conditioing
of the matrix ATA?

Thank you again,
