minimizeDM -- minimizes a square matrix or a differential module

Synopsis

Description

Given a differential module D, this code breaks off trivial blocks, producing a quasi-isomorphic differential module D' with a minimal differential.

i1 : R = QQ[x,y];
i2 : M = R^1/ideal(x^2,y^2);
i3 : phi = map(M,M,x*y, Degree=>2);

o3 : Matrix M <-- M
i4 : D = differentialModule phi;
i5 : r = resDM(D)
