Very Basic MATLAB Peter J. Olver January, 2009 Matrices: Type your matrix as follows: Use space or , to separate entries, and ; or return after each row. >> A = [4 5 6 -9;5 0 -3 6;7 8 5 0; -1 4 5 1] or >> A = [4,5,6,-9;5,0,-3,6;7,8,5,0;-1,4,5,1] or >> A = [ 4 5 6 -9 5 0 -3 6 7 8 5 0 -1 4 5 1 ] The output will be: A = 4 5 6 -9 5 0 -3 6 7 8 5 0 -1 4 5 1 You can identify an entry of a matrix by >> A(2,3) ans = -3 A colon : indicates all entries in a row or column >> A(2,:) ans = 5 0 -3 6 >> A(:,3) ans = 6 -3 5 5 You can use these to modify entries >> A(2,3) = 10 A = 4 5 6 -9 5 0 10 6 7 8 5 0 -1 4 5 1 1

or to add in rows or columns >> A(5,:) = [0 1 0 -1] A = 4 5 6 -9 5 0 10 6 7 8 5 0 -1 4 5 1 0 1 0 -1 or to delete them >> A(:,2) = [ ] A = 4 6 -9 5 10 6 7 5 0 -1 5 1 0 0 -1 Accessing Part of a Matrix: >> A = [4,5,6,-9;5,0,-3,6;7,8,5,0;-1,4,5,1] A = 4 5 6 -9 5 0 -3 6 7 8 5 0 -1 4 5 1 >> A([1 3],:) ans = 4 5 6 -9 7 8 5 0 >> A(:,2:4) ans = 5 6 -9 0 -3 6 8 5 0 4 5 1 >> A(2:3,1:3) ans = 5 0 -3 7 8 5 2

Switching two rows in a matrix: >> A([3 1],:) = A([1 3],:) A = 7 8 5 0 5 0 -3 6 4 5 6 -9 -1 4 5 1 The Zero matrix: >> zeros(2,3) ans = 0 0 0 0 0 0 >> zeros(3) ans = 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 Identity Matrix: >> eye(3) ans = 1 0 0 0 1 0 0 0 1 Matrix of Ones: >> ones(2,3) ans = 1 1 1 1 1 1 Random Matrix: >> A = rand(2,3) A = 0.9501 0.4860 0.4565 0.2311 0.8913 0.0185 Note that the random entries all lie between 0 and 1. 3

Transpose of a Matrix: >> A = [4,5,6,-9;5,0,-3,6;7,8,5,0;-1,4,5,1] A = 4 5 6 -9 5 0 -3 6 7 8 5 0 -1 4 5 1 >> transpose(A) ans = 4 5 7 -1 5 0 8 4 6 -3 5 5 -9 6 0 1 >> A’ ans = 4 5 7 -1 5 0 8 4 6 -3 5 5 -9 6 0 1 Diagonal of a Matrix: >> diag(A) ans = 4 0 5 1 Row vector: >> v = [1 2 3 4 5] v = 1 2 3 4 5 Column vector: >> v = [1;2;3;4;5] v = 1 2 3 4 5 4

or use transpose operation >> v = [1 2 3 4 5]’ v = 1 2 3 4 5 Forming Other Vectors: >> v = [1:5] v = 1 2 3 4 5 >> v = [10:-2:0] v = 10 8 6 4 2 0 >> v = linspace(0,1,6) v = 0 0.2000 0.4000 0.6000 0.8000 1.0000 Important: to avoid output, particularly of large matrices, use a semicolon ; at the end of the line: >> v = linspace(0,1,100); gives a row vector whose entries are 100 equally spaced points from 0 to 1. Size of a Matrix: >> A = [4 5 6 -9 7;5 0 -3 6 -2;7 8 5 0 5 ; -1 4 5 1 -9 ] A = 4 5 6 -9 7 5 0 -3 6 -2 7 8 5 0 5 -1 4 5 1 -9 >> size(A) ans = 4 5 >> [m,n] = size(A) m = 4 n = 5 5
