Description: Macaulay2 file DetRepOfCubicDiscriminant.m2: contains supporting codes for the computational proofs in the paper ’Determinantal representations of the cubic discriminant. We compute and study two determinantal representations of the discriminant of a cubic quaternary form. The first representation is the Chow form of the 2-uple embedding of ℙ3 and is computed as the Pfaffian of the Chow form of a rank 2 Ulrich bundle on this Veronese variety. We then consider the determinantal representation described by [E. J. Nanson, Proc. R. Soc. Edinburgh 22, 353–358 (1899; JFM 30.0161.09)]. We investigate the geometric nature of cubic surfaces whose discriminant matrices satisfy certain rank conditions. As a special case of interest, we use certain minors of this matrix to suggest equations vanishing on the locus of k -nodal cubic surfaces
