### Abstract

We present a novel approach to obtaining the basic facts (including Lidskii's theorem on the equality of the matrix and spectral traces) about determinants and traces of trace class operators on a separable Hilbert space. We also discuss Fredholm theory, "regularized " determinants and Fredholm theory on the trace ideals, c#~(p < oo). 1.
