The matrix volume is a generalization, to rectangular matrices, of the absolute value of the determinant. In particular, the matrix volume can be used in change-of-variables formulae, instead of the determinant (if the Jacobi matrix of the underlying transformation is rectangular). This result is applicable to integration on surfaces, illustrated here by several examples.
