    We investigate the permanent of a square matrix over a field and calculate it using ways different from Ryser's formula or the standard definition. One formula is related to symmetric tensors and has the same efficiency O(2mm) as Ryser's method. Another algebraic method in the prime characteristic case uses partial differentiation.
