numpy matrix operations | identity() function

numpy.matlib.identity() is another function for doing matrix operations in numpy. It returns a square identity matrix of given input size.

Syntax : numpy.matlib.identity(n, dtype=None)

Parameters :
n : [int] Number of rows and columns in the output matrix.
dtype : [optional] Desired output data-type.



Return : n x n matrix with its main diagonal set to one, and all other elements zero.
