Thus these functions are said to be vectorized functions Built-in Matlab functions When multiplying, dividing, or exponentiating these functions, you must use element-by-element operations if the arguments are arrays. To compute z = (ey sin x) cos2x, you must type z exp( y). * sin( x). * (cos( x)).^2 Section 2.4 MATRIX OPERATIONS Addition & Subtraction Matrix addition and subtraction are identical to element-by-element addition and subtracted Vector Multiplication Vector dot product u w u w cos( ) u w u w u w 1 1 2 2 3 3 Recall result is a scalar iˆ iˆ ˆj ˆj kˆ kˆ 1 iˆ ˆj iˆ kˆ ˆj kˆ 0 u 1 w u w u w u w u w w 1 u 2 3 2 3 1 1 2 2 3 3 Vector-Matrix Multiplication Matrix multiplied by column vector a a 11 21 a x a x a x a x a x a x 12 1 11 1 12 2 22 2 21 1 22 2 Result is a column vector Number of columns in matrix must equal number of rows in vector Matrix multiplication To multiply two matrices A & B Number of columns in A must equal number of rows in The resulting product AB has number of rows as A Same number of columns as B Same 6 10 4 –2 3 7 9 –5 8 12 = (6)(9) + (– 2)(– 5) (10)(9) + (3)(– 5) (4)(9) + (7)(– 5) = 64 75 1 24 116 116 (6)(8) + (– 2)(12) (10)(8) + (3)(12) (4)(8) + (7)(12) Matrix multiplication Matrix multiplication is NOT commutative The order of the matrices in the equation is important A B B A Exceptions matrix 0 Identity matrix I Null 0 A A0 0 IA AI A Section 2.5 POLYNOMIAL OPERATIONS USING ARRAYS Polynomials in Matlab Defined as row vector Containing coefficients Starting with coefficient of highest power of x Addition & subtraction Add row vectors BUT if polynomials are of different degrees, add zeros to coefficient array of lower degree polynomial Fool Matlab into thinking that the lower degree polynomial has the same degree Polynomial functions Roots(a) calculate roots Poly(a) computes coefficients of polynomial whose roots are contained in a See Table 2.5-1 on p.108 for additional functions Plotting a polynomial Function polyval(a,x) Evaluates a polynomial at specified values of its independent variable x, which can be a matrix or a vector. The polynomial’s coefficients of descending powers are stored in the array a. The result is the same size as x.
