1.5.1: Determinant of a square matrix

With every square matrix A, a unique real number is associated which is called the determinant of A denoted by |A| or det A. Thus the determinant of a 2-by-2 matrix is obtained by multiplying entries on the main diagonal and subtracting from the product of entries lying on the secondary diagonal.
