Unformatted text preview: Final Exam Review Spring 2009 Topics Covered This Semester: Vectors Conditionals and Itteration Functions Strings Cell Arrays Structures and Structure Arrays Arrays Recursion Plotting Bodies of Rotation Matrices Images Numerical Methods Sound Sorting Queues (Graph Search) Vectors: We remember these right? Of course, youve been doing them all semester now! They contain only numerical values of class double. You can create them several ways, such as: 1. Colon Operator: x = 2:2:10; x = [2 4 6 8 10]; 2. Manually using square brackets : x = [1 2 3 4 5]; 3. Linspace: x = linspace(4, 20, 5) x = [4 8 12 16 20]; Remember linspace assumes 100 values if you do not specify in the third input parameter. 4. Concatenation: x = [A B C]; &#223; horizontally concatenates vectors A, B, and C. Indexing/Assignment : If you want to index the 2nd element in your vector: x = vec(2); If you have a vector, vec, and you want the third element to be a 4: vec(3) = 4; Or if you wish the 5th and 6th elements in your vector to be a 7 and an 8: vec([5 6]) = [7 8]; If you wish to remove the last 3 elements of the vector: vec(end3:end) = [ ]; To get all even values from vec: new_vec = vec(mod(v1,2)==0) To get the values of all the even indices: new_vec=vec(2:2:end) Condtionals: Remember if and switch statements? if Statements: if <condition> <code> elseif <condition> <code> else <code> end *do NOT forget the end!! Switch Cases: switch <variable> case {option1, option2} <code> case option <code> othewise <code> end We would use an if statement to test multiple things at once. For instance if we have several variables that play into the coding decision we need to make: x needs to be larger than 5, y needs to be smaller than 7, and STR needs to be hello world for us to add 6 to our vector, but if J is larger than 8 then we want to remove the last three letters from our string. you see where this is going? Multiple variables are playing into the actions we are going to take. We use Switch if we are testing a single variable, say X, for certain conditions to carry out certain code. if we switch x all of our cases are going to be wether x is greater than, equal to, less than, true, false ect. Itteration: For loops !...
