# Java Program to Rotate matrix by 45 degrees

Given a matrix mat[][] of size N*N, the task is to rotate the matrix by 45 degrees and print the matrix.

Examples:

Input: N = 6,
mat[][] = {{3, 4, 5, 1, 5, 9, 5},
{6, 9, 8, 7, 2, 5, 2},
{1, 5, 9, 7, 5, 3, 2},
{4, 7, 8, 9, 3, 5, 2},
{4, 5, 2, 9, 5, 6, 2},
{4, 5, 7, 2, 9, 8, 3}}
Output:
3
6 4
1 9 5
4 5 8 1
4 7 9 7 5
4 5 8 7 2 9
5 2 9 5 5
7 9 3 3
2 5 5
9 6
8

Input: N = 4,
mat[][] = {{2, 5, 7, 2},
{9, 1, 4, 3},
{5, 8, 2, 3},
{6, 4, 6, 3}}

Output:
2
9 5
5 1 7
6 8 4 2
4 2 3
6 3
3

Approach: Follow the steps given below in order to solve the problem:

1. Store the diagonal elements in a list using a counter variable.
2. Print the number of spaces required to make the output look like the desired pattern.
3. Print the list elements after reversing the list.
4. Traverse through only diagonal elements to optimize the time taken by the operation.

Below is the implementation of the above approach:

## Java

 `// Java program for``// the above approach``import` `java.util.*;``class` `GFG{` `// Function to rotate``// matrix by 45 degree``static` `void` `matrix(``int` `n, ``int` `m,``                   ``int` `[][]li)``{``  ``// Counter Variable``  ``int` `ctr = ``0``;` `  ``while` `(ctr < ``2` `* n - ``1``)``  ``{``    ``for``(``int` `i = ``0``; i < Math.abs(n - ctr - ``1``);``            ``i++)``    ``{``      ``System.out.print(``" "``);``    ``}` `    ``Vector lst = ``new` `Vector();` `    ``// Iterate [0, m]``    ``for``(``int` `i = ``0``; i < m; i++)``    ``{``      ``// Iterate [0, n]``      ``for``(``int` `j = ``0``; j < n; j++)``      ``{``        ``// Diagonal Elements``        ``// Condition``        ``if` `(i + j == ctr)``        ``{``          ``// Appending the``          ``// Diagonal Elements``          ``lst.add(li[i][j]);``        ``}``      ``}``    ``}` `    ``// Printing reversed Diagonal``    ``// Elements``    ``for``(``int` `i = lst.size() - ``1``; i >= ``0``; i--)``    ``{``      ``System.out.print(lst.get(i) + ``" "``);``    ``}``    ` `    ``System.out.println();``    ``ctr += ``1``;``  ``}``}` `// Driver code   ``public` `static` `void` `main(String[] args)``{   ``  ``// Dimensions of Matrix``  ``int` `n = ``8``;``  ``int` `m = n;` `  ``// Given matrix``  ``int``[][] li = {{``4``, ``5``, ``6``, ``9``, ``8``, ``7``, ``1``, ``4``},``                ``{``1``, ``5``, ``9``, ``7``, ``5``, ``3``, ``1``, ``6``},``                ``{``7``, ``5``, ``3``, ``1``, ``5``, ``9``, ``8``, ``0``},``                ``{``6``, ``5``, ``4``, ``7``, ``8``, ``9``, ``3``, ``7``},``                ``{``3``, ``5``, ``6``, ``4``, ``8``, ``9``, ``2``, ``1``},``                ``{``3``, ``1``, ``6``, ``4``, ``7``, ``9``, ``5``, ``0``},``                ``{``8``, ``0``, ``7``, ``2``, ``3``, ``1``, ``0``, ``8``},``                ``{``7``, ``5``, ``3``, ``1``, ``5``, ``9``, ``8``, ``5``}};` `  ``// Function call``  ``matrix(n, m, li);``}``}` `// This code is contributed by Princi Singh`

## Approach: Rotating Matrix by 45 Degrees using a new matrix

The steps of this approach are:

1. Create a new matrix with dimensions (2N-1)x(2N-1), where N is the size of the input matrix. This new matrix will store the rotated matrix.
2. Iterate through each element of the input matrix and place it in the correct position in the rotated matrix according to the rotation formula.
3. Iterate through each element of the rotated matrix and print it in the correct order, with empty spaces for the elements that were not filled by the input matrix.

## Java

 `public` `class` `Main {``    ``public` `static` `void` `main(String[] args) {``        ``int` `N = ``4``;``        ``int``[][] mat = {{``2``, ``5``, ``7``, ``2``}, {``9``, ``1``, ``4``, ``3``}, {``5``, ``8``, ``2``, ``3``}, {``6``, ``4``, ``6``, ``3``}};` `        ``int``[][] result = ``new` `int``[``2``*N-``1``][``2``*N-``1``];` `        ``// Rotate the matrix by 45 degrees``        ``for` `(``int` `i = ``0``; i < N; i++) {``            ``for` `(``int` `j = ``0``; j < N; j++) {``                ``result[i+j][N-``1``-i+j] = mat[i][j];``            ``}``        ``}` `        ``// Print the rotated matrix``        ``for` `(``int` `i = ``0``; i < ``2``*N-``1``; i++) {``            ``for` `(``int` `j = ``0``; j < ``2``*N-``1``; j++) {``                ``if` `(result[i][j] != ``0``) {``                    ``System.out.print(result[i][j] + ``" "``);``                ``} ``else` `{``                    ``System.out.print(``"  "``);``                ``}``            ``}``            ``System.out.println();``        ``}``    ``}``}`

Output

```      2

5   1   7
6   8   4   2
4   2   3
6   3

The time complexity: O(N^2) and

The Auxiliary space is also O(N^2)
