Basic Examples  (1)

Find the reduced norm basis for a lattice:

Applications  (3)

Starting with trivial integer linear relationships, LatticeReduce can produce more interesting ones:

Find integer linear relationships for and of the form :

LatticeReduce preserves linear relationships, and the third row provides , , and :

Find polynomial relationships for :

The trivial initial relationships:

The reduced relationships:

The first relationship:

Find linear relationships x0+x1 ArcTan[1]+x2 ArcTan[1/5]+x3 ArcTan[1/239]==0:

Initial trivial relationships:

Reduced relationships:

The first relationship:

Properties & Relations  (2)

LatticeReduce produces a new reduced basis for the same lattice:

The product of the norms will decrease:

The determinant or volume of the generator cell is preserved:

The lattice is generated by {v1,v2}, but also by {w1,w2} produced by LatticeReduce:

The original cell is pink, and the one produced by LatticeReduce is cyan:

Possible Issues  (1)

The set of vectors must have rational or Gaussian rational coefficients:
