Getting the Modulus of the Determinant of a Matrix in R Programming – determinant() Function
  • Last Updated : 03 Jun, 2020

determinant() function in R Language is a generic function that returns separately the modulus of the determinant, optionally on the logarithm scale, and the sign of the determinant.

Syntax: determinant(x, logarithm = TRUE, …)

Parameters:
x: matrix
logarithm: if TRUE (default) return the logarithm of the modulus of the determinant

Example 1:




# R program to illustrate
# determinant function
  
# Initializing a matrix with
# 3 rows and 3 columns
x <- matrix(c(3, 2, 6, -1, 7, 3, 2, 6, -1), 3, 3)
  
# Getting the matrix representation
x
  
# Calling the determinant() function
determinant(x)

Output:



     [, 1] [, 2] [, 3]
[1, ]    3   -1    2
[2, ]    2    7    6
[3, ]    6    3   -1

$modulus
[1] 5.220356
attr(, "logarithm")
[1] TRUE

$sign
[1] -1

attr(, "class")
[1] "det"

Example 2:




# R program to illustrate
# determinant function
  
# Initializing a matrix with
# 2 rows and 2 columns
x <- matrix(c(1, 2, 3, 4), 2, 2)
  
# Getting the matrix representation
x
  
# Calling the determinant() function
determinant(x, logarithm = FALSE)

Output:

     [, 1] [, 2]
[1, ]    1    3
[2, ]    2    4

$modulus
[1] 2
attr(, "logarithm")
[1] FALSE

$sign
[1] -1

attr(, "class")
[1] "det"
