 ffgausselim
 fraction-free Gaussian elimination on a matrix Calling Sequence ffgausselim(A) ffgausselim(A, 'r') ffgausselim(A, 'r', 'd') ffgausselim(A, rmar) Parameters

 A - rectangular matrix 'r' - (optional) for returning the rank of A 'd' - (optional) for returning the determinant of A rmar - (optional) non-negative integer Description

 • Important: The linalg package has been deprecated. Use the superseding command LinearAlgebra[GaussianElimination], instead.
 - For information on migrating linalg code to the new packages, see examples/LinearAlgebraMigration.
 • Fraction-free Gaussian elimination with row pivoting is performed on A, an n by m matrix of multivariate polynomials over the rationals. The result is an upper triangular matrix of multivariate polynomials.
 • If an optional second parameter is specified, and it is a name, it is assigned the rank of A. The rank of A is the number of non-zero rows in the resulting matrix.
 • If an optional third parameter is also specified, and the rank of A = n, then it is assigned the determinant of $\mathrm{submatrix}\left(A,1..n,1..n\right)$.
 • If an optional second parameter is specified, and it is an integer, the elimination is terminated at this column position.
 • The command with(linalg,ffgausselim) allows the use of the abbreviated form of this command. Examples
