Description
For certain well-conditioned floating-point matrices with entries in ComplexField?, echelon_form can return matrices which are not in (approximate) echelon_form. This breaks methods like rank(), right_solve() and inverse(). I've attached a sample matrix which illustrates this
sage: A = load("./prob-sol.sobj") sage: A.parent() Full MatrixSpace of 5 by 5 dense matrices over Complex Field with 1010 bits of precision sage: matrix(CDF, A.echelon_form()) [ 1.0 0 -3.5*I 0 -20.0 + 12.0*I] [ 0 1.0 1.0 0 -4.0 + 1.0*I] [ 0 0 1.0 + 4.55695126222e-305*I 0 -2.33592727654 + 0.497614402099*I] [ 0 0 -4.0 1.0 -2.0] [ 0 0 -2.0 0 0] sage: CC(A.det()) 76.1312551138321 - 5.28799080668534*I sage: A.rank() 4
This bug is probably related to #2256 and #1132 but there the problem with echelon_form is more subtle (1 entries on the diagonal which aren't quite 1), which is why I opened this new ticket.
