# quotientRemainder -- matrix quotient and remainder

## Synopsis

• Usage:
(q,r) = quotientRemainder(f,g)
• Inputs:
• f,
• g, or , with the same target as f
• Outputs:
• q, the quotient of f upon division by g
• r, the remainder of f upon division by g

## Description

The equation g*q+r == f will hold. The source of f should be a free module.
