Properties of the determinant of a rectangular matrix

Anna Makarewicz, Piotr Pikuta, Dominik Szałkowski


In this paper we present new identities for the Radić’s determinant of a rectangular matrix. The results include representations of the determinant of a rectangular matrix as a sum of determinants of square matrices and description how the determinant is affected by operations on columns such as interchanging columns, reversing columns or decomposing a single column.
