Detailed Description

The interface for field and ring element types.

The interface requirements are minimal and are specified in LinBox::ElementArchetype.

Note
Developers: Your element type may be almost any primitive type or defined class. To support the field archetype there is also a LinBox::ElementAbstract and LinBox::ElementEnvelope.
