# zeros (Matlab function)

Create an array of all zeros

### Matlab/Scilab equivalent

 Matlab Scilab `zeros` `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.

### Examples

 Matlab Scilab ```B = zeros(2) B = [0,;0,0] B = zeros(2,2) B = [0,0;0,0] B = zeros([3,3]) B = [0,0,0;0,0,0;0,0,0]``` ```B = zeros(2) B = 0 B = zeros(2,2) B = [0,0;0,0] B = zeros([3,3]) B = [0,0]```
