So, there is this thing in math, it's called a Jacobian. It's a matrix. This Jacobian matrix was walking down the street. He met a nice Zero matrix, and they multiplied. Sadly, this meant the Jacobian matrix didn't exist anymore. Poor matrix.

I think the Jacobian is supposed to be the determinant of the Jacobian Matrix, actually, even though people will often say "take the Jacobian" when they mean find the Jacobian Matrix.

Oops.........

Moral of the story: Jacobian is dead and I don't know enough math.

I mean, the determinant of a Jacobian Matrix multiplied with the zero matrix would still be zero :)

I've heard both the Jacobian matrix and its determinant referred to as the Jacobian.

==Alex.

Multiplying by scalars works for lots of things, in any case.
