corresponding column of matrix x are nonzero, and a 0 (false) otherwise.
find(x) Returns a vector containing the indices of the nonzero elements of
a vector x. Returns a vector containing

the expression,
or the value of the expression will never change. If the expression is always true (or
is a value that
is nonzero), the loop becomes an infinite loop.

More effective filtering functions and better implementations of filtering in Matlab
are available,

Many engineering problems require the use of random numbers in the
development of a solution.
In some cases, the random numbers are used to develop a simulation of a complex
problem. The
simulation can be tested over and over to analyze the results, with

truncation of this result. Similarly, the probability of a result in the range [1,2) is 0.5
(50%), which
can be mapped to 1b y truncation. The trunction function in Matlab is floor.

Because the exponent is 0.433, not 0.5, our model does not agree exactly with
Torricellis principle,
but it is close. Note that the plot in Figure 10.4 shows that the data points do not lie
exactly on

the determinant is
|B| = 1 (5 4) 3(1 2) + 0(1 5) = 1+ 9 = 10
If the determinant of a matrix is zero, the matrix is said to be singular and its
inverse does not
exist.
The Matlab function det(A) computes the determinant of the square matrix A.
Examples:
>

A=
3 1 1
2 3 1
1 2 1
b=

Note that the matrix A in this equation is the transpose of the matrix A in the
original matrix
equation.
The system of equations is nonsingular if the matrix A containing the coefficients of
the equations
is nonsingular.
