Determinants

  1. 1. DETERMINANT
  2. 2. DEFINITION
  3. 3. EXPANSION OF DETERMINANT
  4. 4. MINORS
  5. 5. COFACTORCofactor of the element aij is Cij = (–1 )i+j. Mij ; where i & jdenotes the row & column in which the particular elementlies.Note that the value of a determinant of order three in termsof ‘Minor’ & ‘Cofactor’ can be written as: D = a11M11 – a12M12 + a13M13 or D = a11C11 + a12C12 + a13C13 & so on.
  6. 6. TRANSPOSE OF A DETERMINANT
  7. 7. SYMMETRIC, SKEW-SYMMETRIC, ASYMMETRICDETERMINANTSI. A determinant is symmetric if it is identical to its transpose. Its ith row is identical to its ith column i.e. aij = aji for all values of i and j II. A determinant is skew-symmetric if it is identical to its transpose having sign of each element inverted i.e. aij = – aji for all values of i and j . A skew-symmetric determinant has all elements zero in its principal diagonal.III. A determinant is asymmetric if it is neither symmetric nor skew-symmetric.

  25. 25.  Consistency of a system of Equations i. If D 0 and alteast one of D1, D2, D3 0, then the given system of equations are consistent and have unique non trivial solution. ii. If D 0 & D1 = D2 = D3 = 0, then the given system of equations are consistent and have trivial solution only. iii. If D = D1 = D2 = D3 = 0, then the given system of equations have either infinite solutions or no solution.
