I have never use MATLAB before but I have to do one operation that deal with matrix of 25(row) x 25(col). So I don't want to do this by hand. So I have to use matlab.
I want to define matrix in MATLAB of GF(2) (the Galois field of order 2 is a mathematical structure called a field that provides a formal definition of arithmetic modulo two) .
Following is my matrix
1 1 0 0 0 1 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0
1 1 1 0 0 0 1 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0
0 1 1 1 0 0 0 1 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0
0 0 1 1 1 0 0 0 1 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0
0 0 0 1 1 0 0 0 0 1 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0
1 0 0 0 0 1 1 0 0 0 1 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0
0 1 0 0 0 1 1 1 0 0 0 1 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0
0 0 1 0 0 0 1 1 1 0 0 0 1 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0
0 0 0 1 0 0 0 1 1 1 0 0 0 1 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0
0 0 0 0 1 0 0 0 1 1 0 0 0 0 1 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0
0 0 0 0 0 1 0 0 0 0 1 1 0 0 0 1 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0
0 0 0 0 0 0 1 0 0 0 1 1 1 0 0 0 1 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0
0 0 0 0 0 0 0 1 0 0 0 1 1 1 0 0 0 1 0 0 0 0 0 0 0
0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 1 0 0 0 1 1 1 0 0 0 1 0 0 0 0 0 0
0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 1 0 0 0 1 1 0 0 0 0 1 0 0 0 0 0
0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 1 0 0 0 0 1 1 0 0 0 1 0 0 0 0
0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 1 0 0 0 1 1 1 0 0 0 1 0 0 0
0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 1 0 0 0 1 1 1 0 0 0 1 0 0
0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 1 0 0 0 1 1 1 0 0 0 1 0
0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 1 0 0 0 1 1 0 0 0 0 1
0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 1 0 0 0 0 1 1 0 0 0
0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 1 0 0 0 1 1 1 0 0
0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 1 0 0 0 1 1 1 0
0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 1 0 0 0 1 1 1
0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 1 0 0 0 1 1
Now I want to find the NULL SPACE of the above matrix. I know the NULL Space of the above matrix is
[1 0 1 0 1 1 0 1 0 1 0 0 0 0 0 1 0 1 0 1 1 0 1 0 1]
[0 1 1 1 0 1 0 1 0 1 1 1 0 1 1 1 0 1 0 1 0 1 1 1 0]
How to do this operation in MATLAB? In short how to define the matrix with GF(2) and also to find the NULL SPACE of that matrix ?

define a vector as :
a= [1 1 1 0 0 0 1 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 ];
you can see the matrix raw's are circularly shifted copies of this vector
for i=1:25
H(i,:)=circshift(a,[0 i-2]);
end
the H matrix is just the one you need... then use a subspace base decomposition method to find the Null space... for example egn() or svd() functions can help u... i am an electrical and communications eng and i know what u exactly need... hope to be helpful.

The matrix H I am getting is incorrect. I am getting below H

so the work is finished... just type :
z=null(H);
