Feature #10056: [PATCH 0/1]Add #adjugate method to matrix class

----------------------------------------
Add Matrix#adjugate to make a matrix adjugate.

Adjugate is really important operator to handle matrix (especially Exploring Data with ruby)

```ruby:
# Property

* Any n-th matrix  `m`(object of Matrix class) Satisfy the following conditions

Matrix.identity(n) == (m.adjugate * m) / m.det

# Differential vector or matrix
Let A = (a(i, j)) is n-th matrix, A(i, j) is adjugate matrix excluding the j and column i row A.

def. det(A)/a(i,j) = (-1) ** (i + j) * det(A(i, j))
```

Some people regards adjugate matrix as Hermitian adjoint.

I regard adjuate matrix as transpose of the cofactor matrix by  referencinghttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Adjugate_matrix.
