ResourceFunction["HessianDeterminant"][expr,{var1, var2, }]

computes the determinant of the Hessian matrix of the expression expr with respect to the given variables.

Examples

Basic Examples

Compute a Hessian determinant:

In[1]:=
ResourceFunction["HessianDeterminant"][Sin[x] Cos[y], {x, y}]
Out[1]=

Compute another Hessian determinant:

In[2]:=
ResourceFunction["HessianDeterminant"][x^3 - 2 x y - y^6, {x, y}]
Out[2]=
