I get the same message (Out of Memory message) for my somewhat pedestrian Win XP with Intel Celeron. I get something when I change the iterator to 10 m= Table[(i-j)+3.*j^-4 +50*i,{i,1,10000,10},{j,1,10000,10}]; Det[m] >\!\(9.0512275103521472601194284`15.954589770191005*^-9068\) best regards Pratik -- Pratik Desai Graduate Student UMBC Department of Mechanical Engineering Phone: 410 455 8134
