You are posting problems faster than you are solving them. The first half of your equality is simply not true unless det(A) is real. Please reconsider.

The proof of det(A^T) = det(A) (at least the one I know about) is about using the definition of the determinant and the properties of permutations.

Further on, I'm not sure what you mean with det(A)=(detA)*.
