 ColumnReducedForm
 compute a column-reduced form of a Matrix
 RowReducedForm
 compute a row-reduced form of a Matrix Calling Sequence ColumnReducedForm(A, x, U) RowReducedForm(A, x, U) Parameters

 A - Matrix x - variable name of the polynomial domain U - (optional) name to return unimodular multiplier Description

 • The ColumnReducedForm(A,x) command computes a column-reduced form of an m x n rectangular matrix of univariate polynomials in x over the field of rational numbers Q, or rational expressions over Q (that is, univariate polynomials in x with coefficients in Q(a1,...,an)).
 • The RowReducedForm(A,x) command computes a row-reduced form over such domains.
 • A column-reduced form is one in which the column leading coefficient matrix has the same column rank as the rank of the matrix of polynomials. A row reduced form has the same properties but with respect to the leading row.
 • The column-reduced form is obtained by elementary column operations, which include interchanging columns, multiplying a column by a unit, or subtracting a polynomial multiple of one column from another. The row-reduced form uses similar row operations. The method used is a fraction-free algorithm by Beckermann and Labahn.
 • The optional third argument returns a unimodular matrix of elementary operations having the property that $P=A·U$ in the column-reduced case and $P=U·A$ in the row-reduced case. Examples
