Prerequisites:

In linear algebra, the identity matrix, of size n is the n × n square matrix with ones on the main diagonal and zeros elsewhere. It is denoted by I. Also known as the unit matrix because its determinant value is 1 irrespective of size. This is the key feature of an Identity matrix and it plays an important role in Linear Algebra.

The identity matrix has the property that, Multiplying k identity matrices gives an identity matrix (Ik = I).

## Python code for identity matrix property (Ik = I)

```# Linear Algebra Learning Sequence
# Identity Matrix Property (I^k = I)

import numpy as np

# identity Matrix
I = np.eye(4)
print("\n---I(4x4)---\n", I)

k = 14
Ik = I

for i in range(14):
Ik = I*Ik

print('\n\n--- I^k ----\n', Ik)
```

Output:

```---I(4x4)---
[[1. 0. 0. 0.]
[0. 1. 0. 0.]
[0. 0. 1. 0.]
[0. 0. 0. 1.]]

--- I^k ----
[[1. 0. 0. 0.]
[0. 1. 0. 0.]
[0. 0. 1. 0.]
[0. 0. 0. 1.]]
```
