comment Prove an implication about quadratic form definiteness
@Daniel yes, that's it, you can post this as an answer, but I think we should first show that result is true for n=2, because for n=1 it is trivial. Then we show that it is true for any n, based on fact that n-1 is positive definite. The result for n comes always from the fact that $\det A^TA = ( \det A )^2>0$

comment Prove an implication about quadratic form definiteness
We want to prove => in statement: quadratic form $q$ over an $n$-dimensional real linear space $V$ is positive definite $\iff$ all main minors $\Delta_1, \Delta_2, ..., \Delta_n > 0$

comment Prove an implication about quadratic form definiteness
@Daniel "Thus, by induction on the dimension its main minors are positive." - but the fact that if q is positive then minors are positive is what we have to PROVE now
