ECE103 Spring 2008 Lecture 4 Basic use of MATLAB ® We will introduce the very basic concepts using a powerful software package called MATLAB. This is a high performance language that integrates computation, visualization and programming. MATLAB stands for matrix laboratory. The program easily handles matrixes and vectors and has a powerful graphic package to display magnitudes in 2D and 3D. MATLAB language is specially oriented to calculations with vectors and matrixes and to perform these calculations it is straightforward. Let us go with an example. When you run the program a command window will appear. It is possible to customize the arrangement of the desktop, and the figure is one possibility. The right side window is the command window and this is the place where we will write the instructions. The left side window will keep track of all defined variables and its dimensions. MATLAB operations are designed to work with matrixes. Special cases are 1x1 matrixes (scalars) or matrixes with only one row or column (vectors). To enter a matrix simply type in the command window the matrix elements separated by spaces, and each row separated by “;”. For example we can enter a row
