MATLAB Central > MATLAB Newsreader > perms and determinant 

I am using the function perms to generate all possible orderings of up to 7 elements, but I need to know the determinant (+1 or 1) for the permutation matrix which would generate the orderings. The determinant should be 1 for an odd number of element swaps and +1 for an even number of element swaps.

Thanks, Bruno. I'm a bit confused about what your code is computing.

Sorry, I reversed incorrectly some commands:

The function below also avoids the find() function, which is expensive, especially as n becomes large. For the output of perms it really doesn't matter what you use because n is small.
