Vibrational mode "cofactor" ?

  1. Apr 29, 2015 #1
    Here's a problem I am doing right now.

    What are the cofactors " ## \Delta_{i \alpha} ##"? I know they are represent the minor of some determinant, but I am confused and can't see which determinant it is.

    Also, could somebody please help me and explain why ## ( V_{ij} - \omega^2 T_{ij} ) \Delta_{i \alpha}##?
