  • It's a scalar value that is a function of the entries of a square matrix.

  • It represents the area of the parallelogram defined by the vector columns of the matrix.

  • If the value is 00, then:

    • the column vectors are linearly dependent.
  • If the value is not 00, then:

    • the column vectors are linearly independent;
    • the matrix is invertible.


  • In one sentence, shows that det(M1M2)=det(M1)det(M2)\det(M_1M_2) = \det(M_1)\det(M_2).

Authority Psychological Trigger
People consider most the opinion of ones they believe to be better at something, whether because of hierarchy or because the person truly knows about the subject, as a doctor.
