Advanced determinant calculus. (English) Zbl 0923.05007
The paper surveys techniques and results on advanced determinant evaluation. A few useful and efficient techniques are shown, an extensive list of evaluated determinants are given, including the context in which they came up, and further references to determinant evaluations. The determinant evaluations surveyed here show connection to special sequences of numbers and polynomials, and to enumerative combinatorics.
