We consider the problem when a scalar function of
n variables can be represented in the form of a determinant det (f i (x )), the so-called Casorati determinant of j f 1, f 2, ⋯,f . The result is applied to the solution of some functional equations with unknown functions n H of two variables that involve determinants det (H(x , i x )). j AMS (1991) subject classification Primary 39B40, 26B40 References
