We extend the notion of the determinant function Λ, originally introduced by T.Fack for τ-compact operators, to a natural algebra of τ-measurable operators affiliated with a semifinite von Neumann algebra which coincides with that defined by Haagerup and Schultz in the finite case and on which the determinant function is shown to be submultiplicative. Application is given to Hölder type inequalities via general Araki–Lieb–Thirring inequalities due to Kosaki and Han and to a Weyl-type theorem for uniform majorization.
