Trace identities from identities for determinants
We present new identities for determinants of matrices
(Ai,j) with entries Ai,j
equal to ai,j or
where the ai,j's are
indeterminates. We show that these identities are behind trace
identities for SL(2,C) matrices found earlier by Magnus in
his study of trace algebras.
