I needed to find a lower bound on $|\det(A+B)|$ where $|.|$ is the absolute value operator.
Because I was unable to get such a bound so I was trying to guess a bound and prove it.
But $||\det(A)|-|\det(B)||$ does not seem to work.
If $\sigma_1$, $\sigma_2$, ..., $\sigma_n$ are singular values of $A$, and $\mu_1$, $\mu_2$, ..., $\mu_n$ are singular values of $B$, then $|(\sigma_1-\mu_1)(\sigma_2-\mu_2)\cdots(\sigma_n-\mu_n)|$ does not seem to work as the lower bound either.
By "does not seem to work" I mean it is not the lower bound of $|\det(A+B)|$.
Any pointers on how to proceed will be helpful. A bound in case there is a significant difference between the singular values of $A$ and $B$ may also work.
The only case that I can solve for is when both $A$ and $B$ are positive semi definite, where $|\det(A+B)|=\det(A+B)\geq \det(A)+\det(B)=|\det(A)|+|\det(B)|.$
