Trying to make sense of the following relation:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

[itex]\sum log d_{j} = tr log(D)[/itex]

with D being a diagonalized matrix.

Seems to imply the log of a diagonal matrix is the log of each element along the diagonal.

Having a hard time convincing myself that is true, though
