We introduce the notion of d-concavity, d ≥ 0, and prove that the nonsymmetric Monge-Ampère type function of matrix variable is concave in an appropriate unbounded and convex set. We prove also the comparison principle for nonsymmetric Monge-Ampère type equations in the case when they are so-called δ-elliptic with respect to compared functions with 0 ≤ δ < 1.
