Abstract

We consider a certain class of gif.latex?n\times&space;n matrices whose elements are given by values of polynomials. We show that their determinants vanish if the degree of the  corresponding polynomial does not exceed gif.latex?n-2 and give a general formula for their determinants when the corresponding polynomial has degree gif.latex?n-1. As an immediate consequence, we deduce linear independence of sets of translations and scalings of a polynomial under suitable assumptions.
