The Homogeneous Equation
SVD constructs orthonormal bases for the nullspace and range of a matrix.
Columns of U with corresponding non-zero Wi are an orthonormal basis for the range.
Columns of V with corresponding zero Wi are an orthonormal basis for the nullspace.
Hence immediately have solution for Ax = 0, i.e. the columns of V with corresponding zero Wi.
