Hi all, I’ve been struggling with computing the determinant of the matrix of indeterminate variables.

My code is as follows:

using TypedPolynomials

using LinearAlgebra

@polyvar p1 p2 p3 p4 p5 p6

A = [p1 p2 p3]

AT=transpose(A)

det(AT*A)

I don’t know if there’s a way to compute the determinant since the result always shows 0.

You compute the determinant of a rank 1 matrix which is always 0

Thank you so much for reminding me of quoting the code.
