Description
sage: R = ZpCA(5,5,print_mode='valunit') sage: A = matrix(R,3,3,[250,2369,1147,106,927,362,90,398,2483]) sage: A [5^3 * 2 + O(5^5) 2369 + O(5^5) 1147 + O(5^5)] [ 106 + O(5^5) 927 + O(5^5) 362 + O(5^5)] [ 5 * 18 + O(5^5) 398 + O(5^5) 2483 + O(5^5)] sage: A.det() 2634 + O(5^5) sage: ~A Traceback (most recent call last): ... ZeroDivisionError: input matrix must be nonsingular
The problem is that Sage doesn't pivot when doing Gaussian elimination:
sage: K = R.fraction_field() sage: A.change_ring(K).augment(identity_matrix(K,3))._echelon_classical() [ 1 + O(5^2) O(5^1) O(5^1) O(5^1) O(5^2) 5^1 * 7 + O(5)] [ O(5^2) 1 + O(5^2) 13 + O(5^2) 4 + O(5^2) O(5^5) 5^2 * 19 + O(5^4)] [ O(5^3) O(5^0) O(5^0) O(5^0) 1 + O(5^2) 5^1 * 8 + O(5)]

Not all methods have a doctest. Also, do you want to c(p)def
some of the methods? Since they are currently python methods, I don't see the point of the sig_check()
. Also, there seems to be some code redundancy, is there a way you could mitigate that?

Branch pushed to git repo; I updated commit sha1. New commits:
23e6363  Added several doctests, cpdefined the functions and mitigated some of the code redundancy.

Hi, I cpdef'd the functions, and mitigated the code redundancy. Also added doctests where they were none.

I did a little bit of cleanup. In particular, I factored out the classical algorithm to simplify the code to help keep it fast. If my changes are good, then you can set a positive review.
New commits:
0584db7  Merge branch 'u/assaferan/use_pivoting_for_gaussian_elimination_on_matrices_over_p_adics' of git://trac.sagemath.org/sage into u/tscrim/pivot_gaussian_elimination_p_adics17272

2bd0f37  Some code cleanup.

The changes seem to be in order, hence I'm setting to a positive review.

 Resolution set to fixed
 Status changed from positive_review to closed
Hi, I have added partial pivoting and scaled partial pivoting to the code, including some examples for doctesting. For now, I set scaled partial pivoting to be the default algorithm only for discrete valuation fields. This is until we will have a better framework for general valuation rings.
Also, I have not implemented complete pivoting, as it is only rarely needed and very inefficient.
