Ptriangularize

Function: ptriangularize (<M>, <v>) If <M> is a matrix with each entry a polynomial in <v>, return a matrix <M2> such that

(1) <M2> is upper triangular,

(2) <M2> = <E_n> ... <E_1> <M>, where <E_1> through <E_n> are elementary matrices whose entries are polynomials in <v>,

(3) |det (<M>)| = |det (<M2>)|,

Note: This function doesnt check that every entry is a polynomial in <v>.

(%o1)                                true
