Unformatted text preview: You may use itteration % to go across a row, but you must use recursion to actually find the % determinants. % http://mathworld.wolfram.com/DeterminantExpansionbyMinors.html % % Notes: % -You *must* use recursion to solve this problem. % function ans = recurDet(A) [r c] = size(A) ans = 0 minorsigns = 1 for i=1:r j=1:r j(i)= ans = ans + minorsigns.*A(i,1).*det(A(j,2:r)) minorsigns = -minorsigns end end...
