in reply to Re: decomposing binary matrices

in thread decomposing binary matrices

I don't think that is sufficient: a submatrix need not have all ones, as for example in the 3x3 submatrix of the example. Indeed, a 3x3 submatrix could have bit-patterns 110, 101, 011 such that no two rows or column are the same, nor is any row or column all ones.
