linspace

linearly spaced vector

Calling Sequence

[v]=linspace(x1,x2 [,n])

Arguments

x1,x2

real or complex scalars or column vectors

n

integer: number of requested values. It must be greater or equal to 2 (default value = 100)

v

real or complex row vector

Description

Linearly spaced vector. linspace(x1, x2) generates a row vector of n (default value=100) linearly equally spaced points between x1 and x2. If x1 or x2 are complex then linspace(x1,x2) returns a row vector of n complexes, the real (resp. imaginary) parts of the n complexes are linearly equally spaced between the real (resp. imaginary) parts of x1 and x2.

Examples

linspace(1,2,10)
linspace([1:4]',[5:8]',10)
linspace(1+%i,2+2*%i,10)

5.4.0
  • The linspace function accepts column vectors as input argument for the two first input arguments. Thanks to Guillaume AZEMA for the implementation.
  • The third input argument (n) must be an integer value.
