Detailed Description

template<class Field>
class LinBox::WiedemannSolver< Field >

Linear system solvers based on Wiedemann's method.

This class encapsulates all of the functionality for linear system solving with Wiedemann's algorithm. It includes the random solution and random nullspace element of Kaltofen and Saunders (1991), as well as the certificate of inconsistency of Giesbrecht, Lobo, and Saunders (1998).
