Detrminant of a lower triangular matrix with an exception (Nth column is non-zero)

  1. Jun 15, 2012 #1
    Hi folks,

    is there an analytical solution for the determinant of the following matrix:

    - -
    | A B |
    | C d |
    - -

    where A is a n-1 x n-1 lower triangular matrix and B and C are n-1x1 and 1xn-1 matrices and d is a non-zero number.
