Let R be a commutative unital ring. A wellknown factorization problem is whether any matrix in SLₙ(R) is a product of elementary matrices with entries in R. To solve the problem, we use two approaches based on the notion of the Bass stable rank and on construction of a nullhomotopy. Special attention is given to the case, where R is a ring or Banach algebra of holomorphic functions. Also, we consider a related problem on representation of a matrix in GLₙ(R) as a product of exponentials.
