Outline Linearity of the Determinant Determinants and Invertibility Determinants and Products Determinants and Inverses The Linearity of the Determinant Map Theorem For each i ∈ {1, 2, . . . , n}, the map Ti : Rn → R deﬁned above is linear: Ti (x + y) = Ti (x) + Ti (y) and Ti (λx) = λTi (x). We say that the determinant is linear in the i th row and linear in the i th column. Outline Linearity of...
