The "super diagonal" of a matrix is the diagonal of entries immediately above the main diagonal. The "sub diagonal" of a matrix is the diagonal of entries immediately below the main diagonal. A "super diagonal matrix" is a matrix that has nonzero entries only on its main diagonal and the diagonal immediately above that. A "sub diagonal matrix" is a matrix that has nonzero entries only on its main diagonal and the diagonal immediately below that. I have never seen the phrase "ultra diagonal matrix" nor am I able to look it up.
