In the above consideration, we have initially ordered elements aij of the matrix A in the determinant in order of the left (row) index. 48) nn Exactly the same final expression for detA is obtained. As the simplest application of our general definition of the determinant of a square matrix, let us calculate the determinant of a diagonal matrix: 0 D D dii ıij B d11 B :: B : DB B B 0 @ 0 1 : 0 0 C C : d22 : : 0 C C : :: :: :: C : : :C A :: : 0 dnn :: 38 1 Elements of Linear Algebra We shall use Eq.

E. 40) Note that this matrix is orthogonal. Indeed, consider a rotation by the angle about the same axis x:  1 1 0 0 Rx .  /T ; 0 sin  cos  0 and this matrix can easily be checked to be the inverse to that in Eq. e. indeed Rx . 38. e. the inverse of any of them coincides with their transpose and also corresponds to the rotation by the angle Â. 39. Consider now two consecutive rotations about the x axis: the first by Â1 and the second by Â2 . Â1 / should correspond to a single rotation by the angle Â1 C Â2 .

46) This expression contains 3Š D 6 terms. 42. Calculate determinants of matrices 1 0 1 0 1 1 0 1 0 2 A D @ 3 1 0 A ; B D @ 0 2 1 A and C D AB : 3 10 0 5 1 Check that detC D detA detB. 46) closely. Each expression contains a sum of products of elements of the corresponding matrix, such as b12 b21 b33 in Eq. 46). One can say that in every such a product each row is represented by a single element; at the same time, one may also independently say that each column is also represented by a single element of A.
