D.11.3.2 jacobson

Procedure from library jacobson.lib (see jacobson_lib).

jacobson(M, eng); M matrix, eng an optional int


Basering is a (non-commutative) ring in two variables.

compute a weak Jacobson normal form of M over the basering

Groebner bases and involutions are used, following [3]

A list L of matrices {U,D,V} is returned. That is L[1]*M*L[3]=L[2],
where L[2] is a diagonal matrix and
L[1], L[3] are square invertible polynomial (unimodular) matrices.
Note, that M can be rectangular.
The optional integer eng2 determines the Groebner basis engine:
0 (default) ensures the use of 'slimgb' , otherwise 'std' is used.

If printlevel=1, progress debug messages will be printed,
if printlevel>=2, all the debug messages will be printed.

==> d,x,
==> 0,d 
list J = jacobson(m); // returns a list with 3 entries
print(J[2]); // a Jacobson Form D for m
==> xd2-d,0,
==> 0,    1 
print(J[1]*m*J[3] - J[2]); // check that U*M*V = D
==> 0,0,
==> 0,0

matrix m[2][2] = s,x,0,s; print(m); // matrix of the same for as above
==> s,x,
==> 0,s 
list J = jacobson(m);
print(J[2]); // a Jacobson Form D, quite different from above
==> xs2+s2,0,
==> 0,     x 
print(J[1]*m*J[3] - J[2]); // check that U*M*V = D
==> 0,0,
==> 0,0
