The main idea of the "black box" approach in exact linear algebra is to reduce matrix problems to the computation of minimum polynomials. In most cases preconditioning is necessary to obtain the desired result. Here good preconditioners will be used to ensure geometrical/algebraic properties on matrices, rather than numerical ones, so we do not address a condition number. We offer a review of problems for which (algebraic) preconditioning is used, provide a bestiary of preconditioning problems,
more &raquo; ... and discuss several preconditioner types to solve these problems. We present new conditioners, including conditioners to preserve low displacement rank for Toeplitz-like matrices. We also provide new analyses of preconditioner performance and results on the relations among preconditioning problems and with linear algebra problems. Thus, improvements are offered for the efficiency and applicability of preconditioners. The focus is on linear algebra problems over finite fields, but most results are valid for entries from arbitrary fields.
