cumsum (Matlab function)

Cumulative sum

Matlab/Scilab equivalent

Matlab Scilab

Particular cases


If A is a matrix, cumsum(A) is equivalent to cumsum(A,1) in Matlab whereas in Scilab cumsum(A) gives the cumulative sum of all the entries of A taken columnwise. Actually, Matlab works on the first non-singleton dimension and Scilab does not.

C = cumsum(A,dim)

Matlab can work with dim greater than number of dimensions of A but Scilab can not, in this can use mtlb_cumsum instead.


Matlab Scilab
B = cumsum([1,2,3;4,5,6])
B = cumsum([1,2,3;4,5,6],1)
B = cumsum([1,2,3;4,5,6])
B = cumsum([1,2,3;4,5,6],1)
