Hi All !

I have a problem with calculation of determinant of 24*24
matrix:
s1={{1,1,1,1,1,1,1,1,1,1,1,1,1,1,1,1,1,1,1,1,1,1,1,1},
{1,1,1,1,1,1,1,1,1,1,1,1,-t1,-t1,-t1,-t1,-t1,-t1,-t1,-t1,-t1,-t1,-t1,-t1},
{1,1,1,1,1,1,-t2,-t2,-t2,-t2,-t2,-t2,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0},
{0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,1,1,1,1,1,1,-t3,-t3,-t3,-t3,-t3,-t3},
{1,1,1,-t4,-t4,-t4,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0},
{0,0,0,0,0,0,1,1,1,-t5,-t5,-t5,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0},
{0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,1,1,1,-t6,-t6,-t6,0,0,0,0,0,0},
{0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0, 0,0,0,0,1,1,1,-t7,-t7,-t7},
{1,1,-t8,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0},
{0,0,0,1,1,-t9,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0},
{0,0,0,0,0,0,1,1,-t10,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0},
{0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,1,1,-t11,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0},
{0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,1,1,-t12,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0},
{0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,1,1,-t13,0,0,0,0,0,0},
{0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,1,1,-t14,0,0,0},
{0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,1,1,-t15},
{1,-t16,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0},
{0,0,0,1,-t17,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0},
{0,0,0,0,0,0,1,-t18,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0},
{0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,1,-t19,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0},
{0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,1,-t20,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0},
{0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,1,-t21,0,0,0,0,0,0,0},
{0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,1,-t22,0,0,0,0},
{0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,1,-t23,0}};
s2=Det[s1];
Mathematica 5.0 on my computer (AMD Atlon XP, 1.4GHz)
cannot calculate it after 12 hours.
It is strange, therefore I calculate more complicated (with
less number of zeros) 68*68 matrix during the seconds.
Please help establish the reason.
Best regards
                                       Nodar Shubitidze
