When re-reading Real-Time Collision Detection by Christer Ericson i came across a section called Determinant Predicates in Chapter 3 A Math and Geometry Primer. I thought it was interesting that from just filling a matrix with data such a points in space and finding the determinate of that matrix you could do geometrical tests. Although the tests are not the most efficient ways for solving the problems outlined here i just wanted to make an implementation in C++ to test it myself.
