Abstract: Numerically stable algorithms are given for updating the Gram-Schmidt QR factorization of an $ m \times n$ matrix $ A\;(m \geqslant n)$ when A is modified by a matrix of rank one, or when a row or column is inserted or deleted. The algorithms require $ O(mn)$ operations per update, and are based on the use of elementary two-by-two reflection matrices and the Gram-Schmidt process with reorthogonalization. An error analysis of the reorthogonalization process provides rigorous justification for the corresponding ALGOL procedures.
