# torch.diagonal¶

torch.diagonal(input, offset=0, dim1=0, dim2=1)Tensor

Returns a partial view of input with the its diagonal elements with respect to dim1 and dim2 appended as a dimension at the end of the shape.

The argument offset controls which diagonal to consider:

• If offset = 0, it is the main diagonal.

• If offset > 0, it is above the main diagonal.

• If offset < 0, it is below the main diagonal.

Applying torch.diag_embed() to the output of this function with the same arguments yields a diagonal matrix with the diagonal entries of the input. However, torch.diag_embed() has different default dimensions, so those need to be explicitly specified.

Parameters
• input (Tensor) – the input tensor. Must be at least 2-dimensional.

• offset (int, optional) – which diagonal to consider. Default: 0 (main diagonal).

• dim1 (int, optional) – first dimension with respect to which to take diagonal. Default: 0.

• dim2 (int, optional) – second dimension with respect to which to take diagonal. Default: 1.

Note

To take a batch diagonal, pass in dim1=-2, dim2=-1.

Examples:

>>> a = torch.randn(3, 3)
>>> a
tensor([[-1.0854,  1.1431, -0.1752],
[ 0.8536, -0.0905,  0.0360],
[ 0.6927, -0.3735, -0.4945]])

>>> torch.diagonal(a, 0)
tensor([-1.0854, -0.0905, -0.4945])

>>> torch.diagonal(a, 1)
tensor([ 1.1431,  0.0360])

>>> x = torch.randn(2, 5, 4, 2)
>>> torch.diagonal(x, offset=-1, dim1=1, dim2=2)
