zeros (Matlab function)

Create an array of all zeros

Matlab/Scilab equivalent

Matlab Scilab

Particular cases

B=zeros(A)

If A is a scalar, then Matlab returns a A*A matrix of zeros but in Scilab you get a 1, use zeros(A,A) to get the same matrix B. If A is a row vector, Scilab and Matlab give the same B. Finally, if A is a matrix, in Scilab, B will be a matrix having the same size as A whereas in Matlab, you get an error message.

Note that in Matlab, A can contain complex values (in these cases, only real part of A is taken in account), what Scilab function do not tolerate.

Examples

Matlab Scilab
B = zeros(2)
B = [0,;0,0]
B = zeros(2,2)
B = [0,0;0,0]
B = zeros([3,3])
B = [0,0,0;0,0,0;0,0,0]
B = zeros(2)
B = 0
B = zeros(2,2)
B = [0,0;0,0]
B = zeros([3,3])
B = [0,0]
