Some mathematics books use U and E to represent the Identity Matrix (meaning "Unit Matrix" and "Elementary Matrix", or from the German "Einheitsmatrix, respectively), although I is considered more universal.
The important property of matrix multiplication of identity matrix is that for m-by-n A
The ith column of an identity matrix is the unit vector ei. The unit vectors are also the eigenvectors of the identity matrix, all corresponding to the eigenvalue 1, which is therefore the only eigenvalue and has multiplicity n. It follows that the determinant of the identity matrix is 1 and the trace is n.
Using the notation that is sometimes used to concisely describe diagonal matrices, we can write:
It can also be written using the Kronecker delta notation:
The identity matrix also has the property that, when it is the product of two square matrices, the matrices can be said to be the inverse of one another.
