Is there any method better than Gaussian elimination, which is
O(n^3), under any reasonable assumptions?


None that I know of, unless you count assumptions about a
special structure, e.g. Toeplitz matrices or similar, for which
an O(n^2) algorithm is possible.

Sorry!

If the matrix is space (or structured as Toeplitz Hankel or low

deplacement rank) yes, look for a method based on matrix-vector product.
Look the web page of Jean-Guillaume Dumas for efficient determinant
computation over finite field.

Hi,

Given a fairly large square matrix (say rows = n >= 300) over Z/p what is the best way to compute its determinant?

So, the entries are in the finite field F(p) = Z/p. The matrix may be sparse or dense.

Is there any method better than Gaussian elimination, which is O(n^3), under any reasonable assumptions?
