# zeros (Matlab function)

Create an array of all zeros

### 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.
