Examples

 > $\mathrm{with}\left({\mathrm{Student}}_{\mathrm{LinearAlgebra}}\right):$
 > $A≔⟨⟨1,2,3⟩|⟨4,5,6⟩|⟨7,8,9⟩|⟨10,11,12⟩⟩$
 ${A}{≔}\left[\begin{array}{cccc}{1}& {4}& {7}& {10}\\ {2}& {5}& {8}& {11}\\ {3}& {6}& {9}& {12}\end{array}\right]$ (1)
 > $\mathrm{Diagonal}\left(A\right)$
 $\left[\begin{array}{c}{1}\\ {5}\\ {9}\end{array}\right]$ (2)
