With the help of Numpy matrix.diagonal() method, we are able to find a diagonal element from a given matrix and gives output as one dimensional matrix.

Syntax : matrix.diagonal()

Return : Return diagonal element of a matrix

Example #1 :
In this example we can see that with the help of matrix.diagonal() method we are able to find the elements in a diagonal of a matrix.




# import the important module in python
import numpy as np
         
# make matrix with numpy
gfg = np.matrix('[6, 2; 3, 4]')
         
# applying matrix.diagonal() method
geeks = gfg.diagonal()
   
print(geeks)
Output:
[[6 4]]

Example #2 :




# import the important module in python
import numpy as np
         
# make a matrix with numpy
gfg = np.matrix('[1, 2, 3; 4, 5, 6; 7, 8, 9]')
         
# applying matrix.diagonal() method
geeks = gfg.diagonal()
   
print(geeks)
Output:
[[1 5 9]]
