Determinant

Function: determinant (<M>) Computes the determinant of <M> by a method similar to Gaussian elimination.

load("vect");
m:matrix([1, 0, 0], [0, sin(t), cos(t)], [0, cos(t), sin(t)]);
n:matrix([1, 0, 0], [0, sin(t), -cos(t)], [0, -cos(t), sin(t)]);
determinant(m);
a:matrix([0, 10, 25]);
m.a;

The form of the result depends upon the setting of the switch ratmx.

There is a special routine for computing sparse determinants which is called when the switches ratmx and sparse are both true.
