Let $\mathbf A = \sqbrk a_{m n}$ be an $m \times n$ matrix over a field $K$.

The **elementary row operations** on $\mathbf A$ are operations which act upon the rows of $\mathbf A$ as follows.

For some $i, j \in \closedint 1 m: i \ne j$:

\((\text {ERO} 1)\) | $:$ | \(\ds r_i \to \lambda r_i \) | For some $\lambda \in K_{\ne 0}$, multiply row $i$ by $\lambda$ | |||||

\((\text {ERO} 2)\) | $:$ | \(\ds r_i \to r_i + \lambda r_j \) | For some $\lambda \in K$, add $\lambda$ times row $j$ to row $i$ | |||||

\((\text {ERO} 3)\) | $:$ | \(\ds r_i \leftrightarrow r_j \) | Exchange rows $i$ and $j$ |
