Join Patrick Royal for an in-depth discussion in this video Everything is a matrix, part of Learning MATLAB (2013).
Let's examine what it means to say that everything in MATLAB is a matrix. …One of the key differences between MATLAB and other programming languages like Java …or C is that MATLAB is built from the ground up around working with matrices an …large data sets. This focus can be confusing and …counterintuitive, but it also makes MATLAB one of the most efficient programs …to do statistical analysis with once you figure it out. …To start with, I'll open up a new script by clicking the New Script button.…
This opens a popup window where we can write all of our code. …I'm going to start by writing three different types of variable definitions. …First, a equals 3. This means that a is interpreted as a …scalar with a value of 3. Next, output b equals 3,4,5;1,2,3. …This tells MATLAB that b is a matrix. Commas or spaces separate different …values on the same row and semicolons or new lines separate different rows.…
Finally, c equals 1:3 causes c to be interpreted as a vector. …MATLAB automatically expands 1:3 to be 1,2,3. …
