# Checking Similarity of Matrices over Finite Fields

Hi, There is a command in SAGE which allows us to check the similarity of two matrices over Q (or sth); is_similar()

But, when trying to check two matrices' similarity over Finite Fields it usually gives the error: "unable to compute Jordan canonical form for matrix"

I would be appreciated if someone can help me to construct a practical way to check the similarity of two matrices with entries in Finite Fields.

Thanks in advance,
