A determinant evaluation conjectured by Roland Bacher

(4 pages)

Abstract. We evaluate the determinant of a matrix the entries of which are certain binomial sums. This proves a conjecture of Roland Bacher.

The following versions are available:


Both, the determinant evaluation proved in this manuscript and the conjectured one mentioned at the end of it, have found elegant proofs in "Play time with determinants" by Tewodros Amdeberhan and Shalosh B. Ekhad.
