isSymmetric() function in R Language is used to check if a matrix is a symmetric matrix. A Symmetric matrix is one whose transpose is equal to the matrix itself.

Syntax: isSymmetric(x)

Parameters:
x: Matrix to be checked

Example 1:




# R program to check if 
# a matrix is symmetric
  
# Creating a diagonal matrix
x1 <- diag(3)
  
# Creating a matrix
x2 <- matrix(c(1, 2, 2, 3), 2)
  
# Calling isSymmetric() function
isSymmetric(x1)
isSymmetric(x2)

Output:

[1] TRUE
[1] TRUE

Example 2:




# R program to check if 
# a matrix is symmetric
  
# Creating a matrix
x1 <- matrix(c(1:9), 3, 3)
  
# Calling isSymmetric() function
isSymmetric(x1)
