Mighty mathematicians we have a question.

We have small matrices of integers that we need to reorder so that the sum
of the diagonal is maximum.

These matrices are relatively small (say 10x10 max) so we can brute force
our way by performing every reordering, but would rather not.

Can anyone help we biostatisticians with an algorithm or theorem?
