Sample text

A matrix is a collection of numbers and/or scalars arranged in rows and columns. For example here is a matrix of numbers with three rows and four columns: >> x = [2 1 -3 0 ; -2 3 4 1 ; 5 -2 1 3] x = 2 -2 5 1 3 -2 -3 4 1 0 1 3 In the above example, the matrix x is rectangular because the number of columns and the number of rows are not equal. In the specification of the matrix in MATLAB, the elements of the same row are separated by spaces while the rows themselves are separated by semicolons. Brackets are used to indicate the beginning and end of a matrix.

Here is an example: >> a = [1 5 3 5 6] >> a = [1 5 3 5 6] a = 1 5 3 5 6 >> b = [-2 3 5 7] b = -2 3 5 7 >> a+b ??? Error using ==> plus Matrix dimensions must agree. >> a-b ??? Error using ==> minus Matrix dimensions must agree. The operation of multiplication is a little more complicated for vectors. Even if you try to multiply two vectors of the same length, you will get an error message. Here is an example using the vectors x and y of the same length defined above: >> x*y ??? Error using ==> mtimes Inner matrix dimensions must agree.
