5 The Adjoint Determinant 37 Proof. 5 on the product of two determinants, n bij = air Ajr r=1 = δij A. Hence, |bij |n = diag|A A . . A|n = An . The theorem follows immediately if A = 0. 16) with a change in notation, |Aij |n = 0, that is, adj A = 0. Hence, the Cauchy identity is valid for all A. 3 An Identity Involving a Hybrid Determinant Let An = |aij |n and Bn = |bij |n , and let Hij denote the hybrid determinant formed by replacing the jth row of An by the ith row of Bn . Then, n Hij = bis Ajs .
