The name Matlab is short for the MATrix LABoratory. It is commercial software package whose main function is to perform calculations on matrices, row vectors, and column vectors. It is widely used in both industry and academic institutions. It possesses many of the features of the High Level, numerically oriented programming language, but in addition has a large collection of built-in functions for performing matrix and vector operations in a way that is very simple for the user.
In addition to functions for performing the usual computations from linear algebra (e.g., inverse, transpose, determinants etc.) Matlab has collection oftoolboxes of more specialized functions for computations in specific areas of science and engineering including Control system Toolbox.
Start windows and double click on the MATLAB icon (if it is installed!). A command window will appear. You can write your programs directly on the window or you may open a new file fromfile menu, which appears on top of the command window.
Matlab works on matrices and vectors that may be real or complex. Variables do not have to be declared (as in C-language). Computations are performed using double- precision arithmetic, and the results can be displayed in a variety of different formats. Let us enter a row matrix into the Matlab workspace. Type in:
it creates a new matrix of single column combining the column vector Z and
transpose of row matrix v.
this creates a new matrix N whivh is a inverse of matrix M.
it simply multiply M with N.
it finds the determinant of matrix M.
