#' Trace of a 'matrix' or 'polyMatrix' class matrix
#'
#' Trace of a matrix is the sum of the diagonal elements of the given matrix.
#'
#' @param x a matrix or a polynomial matrix
#' @return Returns the trace of the given matrix as a number or a polynomial.
#'
#' @details
#' If the given matrix is a polynomial matrix, the result will be a polynomial.
#'
#' @examples
#' # numerical matrices
#' m <- matrix(1:12, 3, 4)
#' ##      [,1] [,2] [,3] [,4]
#' ## [1,]    1    4    7   10
#' ## [2,]    2    5    8   11
#' ## [3,]    3    6    9   12
