gftrunc

Minimize length of polynomial representation

Syntax

c = gftrunc(a)

Description

c = gftrunc(a) truncates a row vector, a, that gives the coefficients of a GF(p) polynomial in order of ascending powers. If a(k) = 0 whenever k > d + 1, the polynomial has degree d. The row vector c omits these high-order zeros and thus has length d + 1.

Examples

In the code below, zeros are removed from the end, but not from the beginning or middle, of the row-vector representation of x2 + 2x3 + 3x4 + 4x7 + 5x8.

c = gftrunc([0 0 1 2 3 0 0 4 5 0 0])
c =

     0     0     1     2     3     0     0     4     5
