# MATCATH

Horizontal Concatenation

### Description

The MATCATH Block outputs the horizontal concatenation of multiple matrices. It is also called concatenation according to the columns. The inputs U1,U2,...,Un must have the same number of rows. The output is a M-by-(N1+N2+...+Nn) matrix, where N1,N2,...,Nn are the numbers of columns of the inputs matrices, and M is the number of rows.

The equivalent of MATCATH in Scilab is y=[U1 U2 ... Un].

### Dialog box

• Datatype(1=real double 2=Complex)

It indicates the type of the output. It support only the two types double (1) and complex (2). If we input another entry in this label xcos will print the message "Datatype is not supported".

Properties : Type 'vec' of size 1.

• number of columns of each matrix

It indicates the number of columns of the inputs matrices.

Properties : Type 'mat' of size [-1,1].

### Example

A=[1 2 3;4 5 6]
B=[7 8;9 10]
The result of the horizental concatenation is:
C=[1 2 3 7 8;4 5 6 9 10]
