Cases of almost-linear time solvable linear systems

Let a square $n\times n$ real matrix ${\bf A}$ and two vectors ${\bf x}$ and ${\bf b}$ of length $n$, such that $${\bf A}{\bf x}={\bf b}.$$ Solving for ${\bf x}$ through standard Gaussian Elimination ...

Scale vector in scaled pivoting (numerical methods)

I'm teaching students about several numeric methods, including scaled pivoting. There's a small section in this subject that I could never find a clear explanation to, either as intuition, or a more ...
fast way to calculate normal to set of vectors with $\pm$1 entries
Say I have a set of $(n-1)$ linearly independent vectors $\mathbf{v}_i$ of dimension $n$ with entries $\pm1$. I am interested in finding the $n-$dimensional vector $\mathbf{u}$which is normal to the ...
Consider a finite field $F$ and suppose we have a system of equations $$h_1(\alpha,\beta)=0,h_2(\alpha,\beta)=0,...,h_t(\alpha,\beta)=0$$ where $\alpha=(\alpha_1,...,\alpha_s)$ and \$\beta=(\beta_1,.....
