Summary: As a building block for a wide range of applications, computational exact linear algebra has to conciliate efficiency and genericity. The goal of the LinBox project is to address this problem in the design of an efficient general-purpose C++ opensource library for exact linear algebra over the integers, the rationals, and finite fields. Matrices can be either dense, sparse or black box (i.e. viewed as a linear operator, acting on vectors only). The library proposes a set of high level linear algebra solutions, such as the rank, the determinant, the solution of a linear system, the Smith normal form, the echelon form, the characteristic polynomial, etc.
