The minimum rank problem asks to ﬁnd the minimum rank over all matrices with given pattern associated with a graph. This problem is NP-hard, and there is no known approximation method. In this article, a numerical algorithm is given to heuristically approximate the minimum rank using alternating projections. The eﬀectiveness of this algorithm is demonstrated by comparing its results to a related parameter: the zero-forcing number. Using these methods, numerical evidence for the minimum rank graph complement conjecture is provided.
