In this paper we consider a simultaneous reduction of three matrices. The described method is extended from the work presented in [3] to include rank deficient data. It is shown how, via an initial reduction, the problem becomes one of diagonalizing a product of three matrices. We compare three different algorithms for its computation and show why one is preferred over the others.
