Trace of a matrix equals sum of its determinants?
If a matrix is diagonalizable, how does its trace equal the sum of its eigenvalues?
I can't find a proof for this anywhere.

What is the trace of a diagonal matrix? What are the algebraic properties of trace?

Ah I see, the trace is similarity invariant. thanks
