## Very quick matrix question

Very quick question.

Im 99% sure that the transpose of a matrix of only diagonal ones is always equal to its original state.

Ie
|1000| |1000| T
|0100| |0100|
|0010| = |0010|
|0001| |0001|

So my question is am i correct ?

So if all non-diagonal elements are 0, we have $a_{ij}= a_{ji}= 0$. And, of course, on the diagonal i= j so we still have $a_{ij}= a_{ji}$.
