You can download the code for the BALM matrix factorization algorithm here: BALM CODE.

The approach solves factorization with missing data, in particular when one of the matrices involved in the factorization have a special known structure (i.e. it belongs to a matrix manifold). The code is applied to several problems in Computer Vision such as Rigid and Non-rigid Structure from Motion, Photometric Stereo and image registration.
