Hello, Im supposed to prove that the determinant of a second order tensor (a matrix) is equal to the following:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

det[A] = [tex]\frac{1}{6} \epsilon_{ijk} \epsilon_{pqr} A_{pi} A_{qj} A_{rk}[/tex]

anyone have any idea how i would go about this? any method is welcome
