We may therefore form an orthogonal transformation in association with every skew determinant which has its leading diagonal elements unity, for the Zn(n-I) quantities b are clearly arbitrary.
Wide were jumped downward from it in the intended plane; this prevented a skew fracture (PT.
When a skew symmetric determinant is of even degree it is a perfect square.
A skew determinant is one which is skew symmetric in all respects,.
Mechanism; so that, if b is guided in any curve, the point a will describe a similar curve turned through an angle baa, the scales of the curves being in the ratio ab to cc. Sylvester called an instrument based on this property aplagiograph or a skew pantograph.
A skew symmetric determinant has a,.
