Firstly if the transformation o f the coefficients is o f the form T [a JT = diag. [Alt A2, ----- - AJ, then the rank o f [a#] is equal to the rank o f the diagonal matrix. I f the rank is r then the number o f zero terms among the A/s is (n — r) and independent o f the mode o f reduction. Next suppose that in one reduction ZatFix¡ = Z\Vi2> where Ax, ___ _ are positive and the remaining coefficients negative or zero, while in another reduction = Z p fr1, where [il9 [iQ are positive and the remaining coefficients zero or negative with p < q.
