Oriented Volume

[previous page] [next page] [table of contents][page overview]

The absolute value of the determinant of a real matrix $ A$ coincides with the $ n$-dimensional volume of the parallelepiped spanned by the colums $ a_i$:

$\displaystyle \vert\operatorname{det}A\vert =
\operatorname{vol}\{\sum_{i=1}^n \alpha_i a_i:\
0\le\alpha_i\le 1\}\,
