## LinBox.REF

Computes a row echelon form of a matrix.

### Syntax

LinBox.REF(M:MAT, CompRREF:BOOL):MAT LinBox.REF(M:MAT, P:INT, CompRREF:BOOL):MAT

### Description

*Please note:* The function(s) explained on this page is/are using the *ApCoCoAServer*. You will have to start the ApCoCoAServer in order to use it/them.

This function allows you to compute a (reduced) row echelon form of `M` over a finite field. If you want to use the first version without the parameter `P`, the components of the input matrix `M` must castable to type `ZMOD` and your current working ring must be a finite field. The second version of this function lets you compute a (reduced) row echelon form of `M` mod `P` and the components of `M` must be of type `INT`.

The parameter `CompRREF` lets you specify if you want to compute a row echelon form or the reduced row echelon form of `M`. If `CompRREF` is set to `TRUE`, the reduced row echelon form will be computed, and if it is set to `FALSE`, a row echelon form where all pivot elements are equal to one will be computed.

The return value of both functions is the computed (reduced) row echelon form of `M`.

@param

*M*A matrix whose (reduced) row echelon form to compute. If parameter`P`is given, the components of`M`must be of type`INT`. Otherwise, they must be of type`ZMOD`.@param

*CompRREF*Set to`TRUE`if you want to compute the reduced row echelon form of`M`or to`FALSE`otherwise.@return A (reduced) row echelon form of

`M`.

The following parameter is optional.

@param

*P*An integer value. If`P`is specified, the (reduced) row echelon form computation will be carried out over the ring`Z/pZ`.

#### Example

Use ZZ/(239)[x]; M := Mat([[1, 2, 3], [4, 5, 6], [7, 8, 9], [11, 12, 13]]); M; LinBox.REF(M, FALSE); Mat([ [1, 2, 3], [4, 5, 6], [7, 8, 9], [11, 12, 13] ]) ------------------------------- Mat([ [1 % 239, 2 % 239, 3 % 239], [0 % 239, 1 % 239, 2 % 239], [0 % 239, 0 % 239, 0 % 239], [0 % 239, 0 % 239, 0 % 239] ]) -------------------------------

#### Example

Use QQ[x,y]; M := Mat([[ 1, 1, 2], [200, 3000, 1], [2, 5, 17], [1, 1, 1]]); M; LinBox.REF(M, 17, TRUE); Mat([ [1, 1, 2], [200, 3000, 1], [2, 5, 17], [1, 1, 1] ]) ------------------------------- Mat([ [1, 0, 0], [0, 1, 0], [0, 0, 1], [0, 0, 0] ]) -------------------------------
