Is there algorithm to find such matrix of n*n?

Thanks.

Both matrices will probably contain only zeros and ones.

our teacher said there are some without zeros

Use only 1's and 0's for simplicity. Anyway I suspect that any other example will be a multiple or something simply related to such a matrix.

Instead of thinking about 4X4 matrices yet, attack a simpler case - 2X2 matrices. You can surely find several 2X2 matrices that have your property.

Then does that suggest a plan for extending to construction of suitable 3X3 matrices? If you can do that you will probably be able to do it for 4X4 too.

not so:

[1 1][2 -1]....[1 0]

[1 2][-1 1] = [0 1]

Halls of Ivy: isn't this true for matrices with determinant ± 1?

Can you find a 4x4 matrix with integer entries whose determinant is 1??

Where did you leave it last? Retrace your steps, and you may find it... or:

Start with the 4x4 identity, and apply transformations to the rows that preserve the value of

the determinant.
