It is given that: $\left |\det(A) \right |\leq n^{\frac{-n}{2}}\left \| A \right \|^{n}$ where $A$ is an $n$ by $n$ matrix, and $\left \| A \right \|$ is the Hilbert Schmidt norm (i.e: $\left \| A \right \|=\left ( \sum_{i,j=1}^{n}a_{ij}^{2} \right )^{\frac{1}{2}}$).

Now, I want to prove the following inequality based on the above one:

$$\left |\det(A) \right |\leq \prod_{j=1}^{n}\left ( \sum_{i=1}^n a_{ij}^2\right )^{\frac 12}.$$

Any help?

Write $x_j=\sum_ia_{ij}^2$. Then by the inequality of the arithmetic and geometric means, $$(1/n)\sum_j x_j\ge\prod_jx_j^{1/n}$$ Raise to the $n/2$: $$n^{-n/2}\left(\sum_jx_j\right)^{n/2}\ge\prod_jx_j^{1/2}$$ But the left side is $n^{-n/2}\|A\|^n$, and the right side is $\prod_j\left(\sum_ia_{ij}^2\right)^{1/2}$, so I seem to have proved the exact opposite of what you would need to get the 2nd inequality from the 1st.
