Be careful, you can change them – ans – pi – Inf – NaN 2 Matrices and Vectors • Arrays are a collection of values referred to by a single variable name • M a t r i c e s c a n b e d e f i n e d s e v e r a l d i f f e r e n t w a y s 1. Manual Entry 2. Expressions that evaluate a matrix 3. Builtin functions that return matrices 4. Userwritten functions that return matrices 5. Importing matrix data from files on disk “Roger, Roger. What’s our vector, Victor?” Airplane 3 • Vectors • Matrices Manual Entry >> A = [4 6 7; 5 3 2; 1 7 4] A = 4 6 7 5 3 2 1 7 4 >> u=[6 3 8] u = 6 3 8 >> v = [3.1; 4.2; 0.5; 9.0] v = 3.1000 4.2000 0.5000 9.0000 “The human mind has never invented a laborsaving machine equal to algebra.” Anonymous 4 Matrices and Vectors • Arrays are a collection of values referred to by a single variable name • M a t r i c e s c a n b e d e f i n e d s e v e r a l d i f f e r e n t w a y s 1.
