Actually I have a matrix whose elements range from exp(200) to exp(-200). The matrix is ill conditioned with conditioning number of 10^167. I am calculating determinant of this matrix. MATLAB gives it in the 10^-13. The matrix is posted in the following link.
http://math.stackexchange.com/questions/859597/determinant-of-an-ill-conditioned-matrix/859614#859614
So, I was just wondering whether to rely on this calculation of determinant or not.
