# On the complexity of polynomial matrix computations

@inproceedings{Giorgi2003OnTC, title={On the complexity of polynomial matrix computations}, author={Pascal Giorgi and Claude-Pierre Jeannerod and Gilles Villard}, booktitle={ISSAC '03}, year={2003} }

We study the link between the complexity of polynomial matrix multiplication and the complexity of solving other basic linear algebra problems on polynomial matrices. By polynomial matrices we mean <i>n</i>times <i>n</i> matrices in <b>K</b>[<i>x</i>] of degree bounded by <i>d</i>, with <b>K</b> a commutative field. Under the straight-line program model we show that multiplication is reducible to the problem of computing the coefficient of degree <i>d</i> of the determinant. Conversely, we…
