I suspect that the English word would be "minor". The Spanish word "menor" can be translated as English "minor" in some situations.

A = [
2 4 1
4 3 7
2 1 3
detA = det(A)
invA = inv(A)
cofactorA = transpose(detA*invA)

This is not MATLAB code. It might be Octave.

The matrix confactor of a given matrix A can be calculated as det(A)*inv(A), but also as the adjoint(A). And this strange, because in most texts the adjoint of a matrix and the cofactor of that matrix are tranposed to each other. But in MATLAB are equal. I found a bit strange the MATLAB definition of the adjoint of a matrix.

adjoint matrix is ​​the transpose of the cofactor matrix so the above result is correct
