SMS028 Self-Guided Matlab Tour #1 Lp1, ’04 Matlab is a powerful mathematical software package that is widely used in engineering. In this session, you’ll learn some of the basics of Matlab such as: starting/stopping deFning/manipulating vectors plotting looping creating script Fles getting help 1 Starting/Stopping Matlab After logging into your account try starting matlab by typing: matlab With a full lab room, and everyone doing this at once, it will take some time to load. ..be patient. After a while you will see the screen Flled with three windows: Workspace, Command History, and Command Window. To quit Matlab, type quit in the command window. Some users prefer a simpler interface (and faster startup times!), in this case you can start up Matlab by typing matlab -nojvm , try it now. 2 DeFning/Manipulating Vectors To create and deFne a scalar (that is, a 1 × 1 vector, simply type: x = 5 Matlab will echo back the results by >> x=5 x = 5 Matlab is a matrix-based language, you can create and manipulate matrices simply. One way to create a vector is to type each element’s value within square brackets: x = [ 3 5 7 9 11 ] To create the matrix A = b 10 11 13 2 4 6 B you would type A = [ 10 11 13 ; 2 4 6 ]

To create the matrix B = A T you would use the transpose operator “ B = A’ Another way to create a vector is to use the “ startvalue : increment : finalvalue
