The Determinate and its Applications: Part 1.

Determinants are an important concept in linear algebra. They have many applications in practical problems as well as in theory. In this story I want to point out some basic and fundamental aspects about determinants.

This account requires some basic knowledge about permutations. You may find an accessible overview in this story.

The determinant function:

This concludes the construction of the determinant function. In the next story we are going to put more light on its application and in particular how it is connected to linear mappings.
