### 1. Creating scalars

• Assigna value to a variable (i.e. Hardcode)

pressure = 10; %pascals

temperature = 298; %kelvin

• Store the result of an equation

pressure = density*R*temperature;

• Save the return-value of the input() command

age = input(‘Enter your age: ’);

### 2. Creating vectors

• There are LOTS of ways to create vectors, based on three simple ideas:

• The values in the vector are pre-defined. For example:

[ 2 -5 4.4 -96.6]

### 2. Creating vectors

• There are LOTS of ways to create vectors, based on three simple ideas:

• The values in the vector are pre-defined. For example:

[ 2 -5 4.4 -96.6]

• The values have a pattern (addition only). For example:

[10, 20, 30 ,…100] or [-10 -8 -6 -4 -2 0]

### 2. Creating vectors

[ 2 -5 4.4 -96.6]

• The values have a pattern (addition only). For example:

[10, 20, 30 ,…100] or [-10 -8 -6 -4 -2 0]

• Finally, the total amount of values is known. For example:

25 points evenly spaced from 0 to 100.

The apostrophe allows to transpose a vector. Rows become columns. Columns become rows.

They create rows AND suppress output!

• Well…

• x is an array of data pointsx = [-7 -2 3 8]

• y is another array of data pointsy = [4 -7 3 -1]

• …for the curious ones, to plot:plot(x,y)

### 2.2. Patterns (addition only)

The range operator

Numbers are separated by +1

21

### 2.2. Patterns, cont.

The range operator

Numbers are separated by +1

An additional value in the middle specifies the increment.

+3 +3 +3 +3 +3 +3 +3

+3 >32 

22

### 2.2. Patterns, cont.

The range operator

Numbers are separated by +1

An additional value in the middle specifies the increment.

Go reverse by using a negative increment! CAUTION: the beginning number must be > the end number. Here 10>3. (This also shows it works with decimals.)

+3 +3 +3 +3 +3 +3 +3

+3 >32 

-2.5 -2.5 -2.5 < 3 

23

### 2.2. Patterns, cont.

The range operator

Numbers are separated by +1

An additional value in the middle specifies the increment.

To use the apostrophe and create a column vector, absolutely place brackets first!

… else….

+3 +3 +3 +3 +3 +3 +3

+3 >32 

-2.5 -2.5 -2.5 < 3 

Only the scalar -10 gets transposed: but a scalar transposed remains the same scalar!

### Ex4. Conversion table

% create celsius data points

celsius = 0:10:100; %0 to 100 by +10 increment

% calculate Fahrenheit

fahrenheit = celsius * 9/5 + 32;

% show table

<code not shown>

### 2.3. Specific amount of data points

• A built-in function called linspace() spaces elements linearly in an array.

• What does this mean?

• The distance between each consecutive data point is equal.

• There are two ways to use it, as Matlab ‘hints’ when the command typed is unfinished:

Either provide 2 arguments, or provide 3 arguments.

27

### 2.3. linspace(), cont.

The third argument indicates the ________________________ .

28

### 2.3. linspace(), cont.

The third argument indicates the ________________________ .

When Matlab cannot display all the elements on one line, it simply indicates the column-number per line.

29

### 2.3. linspace(), cont.

The third argument indicates the ________________________ .

When Matlab cannot display all the elements on one line, it simply indicates the column-number per line.

30

### 2.3. linspace(), cont.

?????? %no third argument

Omitthe third argument uses a default of _______ data points!

### Ex5. Plotting graphs

• Suppose a function that relates each x to its y-coordinate is known: y = f(x) = x2.  Plot y vs. x.

x y

### Ex5. Plotting graphs

• Suppose a function that relates each x to its y-coordinate is known: y = f(x) = x2.  Plot y vs. x.

• In this case, it is tedious work to hard-code each x and y array. Are 4 data-points sufficient, like in example 3?

y

x

### Ex5. Plotting f(x) = x^2, cont.

• Remember: which built-in function influences the number of data-points in an array?____________________

• In this case:

%array x of 20 data points

%calculate array of y’s.

%plot command

And the result is…

### Ex5. Plotting f(x) = x^2, cont.

• Remember: which built-in function influences the number of data-points in an array?____________________

• In this case:

%array x of 20 data points

x = linspace(-10,10,20);

%calculate array of y’s.

y = x.^2; %(The dot will be explained next time…)

%plot command

plot(x,y)

And the result is…

### Ex5. Plotting f(x) = x^2, cont.

Does this represent f(x) = x2 ?

Yes Or No

Yes, but it took 20 points!!

### Ex5. Plotting f(x) = x^2, cont.

• The use of linspace() in this example is crucial! Why do all 20 data point need to be linearly spaced?

• What would happen otherwise?

Still 20 points!!

.. but the first 19 are before -5,

.. and the last one is 10.

Not f(x) = x2..

### 3. Creating Matrices

• Simply a combinationof all symbols introduced with vectors!

• Square brackets [ ]

• Spaces or commas , ,

• Semi-colons ;

• Apostrophes ’

38

### 3.1. Matrices: hard-coding

• Use semi-colons to create new rows.

• ONLY rectangular matrices:

• The number of columns MUST match for each row, and vice-versa.

39

### 3.2. Reusing Previous matrices

• Use semi-colons to create new rows.

• ONLY rectangular matrices:

• The number of columns MUST match for each row, and vice-versa.

Use previousmatrices to actually create new matrices.

This example transposes the matrix variable a.

40

3.3. Using Colons

• Use semi-colons to create new rows.

• ONLY rectangular matrices:

• The number of columns MUST match for each row, and vice-versa.

You can use previousmatrices to actually create new matrices.

This example transposes the variable a.

Combine any previous methods, AS LONG AS the matrix remains rectangular.

41

### 3.4. “Concatenating”

• Use semi-colons to create new rows.

• ONLY rectangular matrices:

• The number of columns MUST match for each row, and vice-versa.

Finally, create arrays by combining previous variables!

This is called

CONCATENATING.

You can use previousmatrices to actually create new matrices.

This example transposes the variable a.

You can combine any previous methods, AS LONG AS the matrix remains rectangular.

42

### 3.5. Using the command window

• Use semi-colons to create new rows.

• ONLY rectangular matrices:

• The number of columns MUST match for each row, and vice-versa.

When the array becomes too big, the numbers no longer display.

You can use previousmatrices to actually create new matrices.

This example transposes the variable a.

You can combine any previous methods, AS LONG AS the matrix remains rectangular.

43

### Ex4. Conversion table, end!

% create celsius data points

celsius = 0:10:100; %0 to 100 by +10 increment

% calculate Fahrenheit

fahrenheit = celsius * 9/5 + 32;

% show table

[celsius’ fahrenheit’]

### Ex6. Sling Thermometer

A method to read relative-humidity.

### Ex7. Images

Each row and column have a pixel value stored.

• Know by heart each way to create a row/column vector.

• Hard-code each data point

• Separate each data-point by comma or spaces for row vector

• Separate each data-point by semicolon for a column vector

• Shortcut when there is an addition pattern (colon)

• Shortcut when a specific amount of data points are linearly spaced (linspace())
