The following operations are defined between two scalars: Addition Subtraction Multiplication Division Exponentiation a+b ab a*b a/b a^b 3 Scalar / Array Operations
The same operations may be performed between an array and a scalar. In this case the operation is performed to every element of the array. Array vs. Matrix operations
When two arrays are being operated on MATLAB makes a distinction between array an matrix operations. Matrix operations are the standard Linear Algebra operations Array operations are done on an elementbyelementbyelement basis Array vs. Matrix operations
