The .NET API Reference documentation has a new home. Visit the .NET API Browser on to see the new experience.

Calculates the determinant of two vectors.

Namespace:   System.Windows
Assembly:  WindowsBase (in WindowsBase.dll)

public static double Determinant(
	Vector vector1,
	Vector vector2


Type: System.Windows.Vector

The first vector to evaluate.

Type: System.Windows.Vector

The second vector to evaluate.

Return Value

Type: System.Double

The determinant of vector1 and vector2.

The following example shows how to calculate the determinant of two Vector structures.

private Double determinantExample()
    Vector vector1 = new Vector(20, 30);
    Vector vector2 = new Vector(45, 70);
    Double determinant;

    // determinant is equal to 50
    determinant = Vector.Determinant(vector1, vector2);

    return determinant;
