Particular cases

Empty matrix and subtraction

In Matlab, subtraction can only be made if the operands have the same size unless one is a scalar. For exemple, empty matrices can only be subtracted to another empty matrix or a scalar.

Note that when you subtract an empty matrix to a scalar and inversely, Matlab result is always an empty matrix while in Scilab, result is equal to the scalar.

Examples

Matlab Scilab
A = 1 - []
A = []
A = 1 - []
A = 1
