# fmpq_vec.h – vectors over rational numbers¶

Description.

## Memory management¶

fmpq * _fmpq_vec_init(slong n)

Initialises a vector of fmpq values of length $$n$$ and sets all values to 0. This is equivalent to generating a fmpz vector of length $$2n$$ with _fmpz_vec_init and setting all denominators to 1.

void _fmpq_vec_clear(fmpq * vec, slong n)

Frees an fmpq vector.

## Randomisation¶

void _fmpq_vec_randtest(fmpq * f, flint_rand_t state, slong len, flint_bitcnt_t bits)

Sets the entries of a vector of the given length to random rationals with numerator and denominator having up to the given number of bits per entry.

void _fmpq_vec_randtest_uniq_sorted(fmpq * vec, flint_rand_t state, slong len, flint_bitcnt_t bits)

Sets the entries of a vector of the given length to random distinct rationals with numerator and denominator having up to the given number of bits per entry. The entries in the vector are sorted.

## Sorting¶

void _fmpq_vec_sort(fmpq * vec, slong len)

Sorts the entries of (vec, len).

## Conversions¶

void _fmpq_vec_set_fmpz_vec(fmpq * res, const fmpz * vec, slong len)

Sets (res, len) to (vec, len).

## Dot product¶

void _fmpq_vec_dot(fmpq_t res, const fmpq * vec1, const fmpq * vec2, slong len)

Sets res to the dot product of the vectors (vec1, len) and (vec2, len).

## Input and output¶

int _fmpq_vec_fprint(FILE * file, const fmpq * vec, slong len)

Prints the vector of given length to the stream file. The format is the length followed by two spaces, then a space separated list of coefficients. If the length is zero, only $$0$$ is printed.

In case of success, returns a positive value. In case of failure, returns a non-positive value.

int _fmpq_vec_print(const fmpq * vec, slong len)

Prints the vector of given length to stdout.
