# How to draw brackets along the edges of a rectangle?

I have the following code to draw the rectangle with diagonal

\documentclass[12pt]{article}
\usepackage{geometry}
\usepackage{tikz}

\begin{document}

\begin{tikzpicture}[yscale=0.7]
\draw (0,0) rectangle (6,3) (3,3) -- (3,0) -- (0,3)
(0.4,0.4) node[above right,font=\Huge]{$\mathbf 0$}
foreach \X [count=\Y] in {} {(0,3.5-\Y) node[red,left] {$\X$}
(-0.5+\Y,3) node[red,above] {$\X$}}
foreach \X [count=\Y] in {} {(2.5+\Y,3) node[above] {$\X$}};
\end{tikzpicture}

\end{document} You can use a brace decoration for that, the ones from the calligraphy library are IMHO particularly appealing. Note that for the symmetric rectangle here you could just use a rectangle node, but this harder to generalize to asymmetric cases, so I keep the rectangle path.

\documentclass[12pt]{article}
\usepackage{geometry}
\usepackage{tikz}
\usetikzlibrary{decorations.pathreplacing,calligraphy}
\begin{document}

\begin{tikzpicture}[yscale=0.7,
brace/.style={thick,decorate,
decoration={calligraphic brace, amplitude=7pt,raise=0.5ex}}]
\draw (0,0) coordinate (O) rectangle (6,3)  coordinate (TR)
(3,3) coordinate (T) -- (3,0) coordinate (B) -- (0,3)
coordinate (TL)
(0.4,0.4) node[above right,font=\Huge]{$\mathbf{0}$};
\draw[brace] (O)    -- node[left=1.5ex]{$I$} (TL);
\draw[brace] (TL)   -- node[above=1.5ex]{$I$} (T);
\draw[brace] (T)    -- node[above=1.5ex]{$J$} (TR);
\end{tikzpicture}
\end{document} • Could you please help me with the last two figures, which are the last part of my thesis? Jun 16 '20 at 23:18
