Singular Value Decomposition (SVD) and Generalized Eigensystem (GES) inverse techniques are compared for their ability to solve the inverse problem of electrocardiography. In this study, epicardial data from six in-vitro rabbit heart experiments are used to project body surface data for six different geometries. For concentric geometries, GES outperformed SVD in all instances. For eccentric heart/body geometries, GES outperformed SVD when the inverse errors themselves were small.
