matrices

Scilab objects, matrices in Scilab

Description

Matrices are basic objects defined in Scilab. They can be defined as follows:

E=[e11,e12,...,e1n;
e21,e22,...,e2n;
....
em1,em2,...,emn];

Entries eij can be real or complex numbers, polynomials, rationals, strings, booleans.

Vectors are seen as matrices with one row or one column.

Examples

E=[1,2;3,4]
E=[%T,%F;1==1,1~=1]
s=poly(0,'s');
E=[s,s^2;1,1+s]
E=[1/s,0;s,1/(s+1)]
E=['A11','A12';'A21','A22']

• poly — polynomial definition
• string — conversion to string
• boolean — Scilab Objects, boolean variables and operators & | ~
• rational — Scilab objects, rational in Scilab
• empty — ([]) empty matrix
• hypermatrices — a Scilab object, N dimensional matrix in Scilab
• testmatrix — generate special matrices, such as Hilbert, Franck
