ab: Summary: This article deals with a short historical introduction to
determinants with applications to the theory of equations, geometry,
multiple integrals, differential equations and linear algebra. Included
are some properties of determinants with proofs, eigenvalues,
eigenvectors and characteristic equations with examples of applications
to simple harmonic oscillations and eigenvalue problems.
