Introduction to Matlab By: .Ycel zbek Outline: What is Matlab? Matlab Screen Variables, array, matrix, indexing Operators (Arithmetic, relational, logical ) Display Facilities Flow Control Using of M-File Writing User Defined Functions Conclusion

What is Matlab? Matlab is basically a high level language which has many specialized toolboxes for making things easier for us How high? Matlab High Level Languages such as C, Pascal etc. Assembly What are we interested in? Matlab is too broad for our purposes in this course. The features we are going to require is

Series of Matlab commands Matlab m-files functions Input Output capability Command Line Command execution like DOS command window mat-files Data storage / loading Matlab Screen

Command Window type commands Current Directory View folders and m-files Workspace View program variables Double click on a variable to see it in the Array Editor Command History view past commands

save a whole session using diary Variables No need for types. i.e., int a; double b; float c; All variables are created with double precision unless specified and they are matrices. Example: >>x=5; >>x1=2; After these statements, the variables are 1x1 matrices with double precision Array, Matrix

a vector x = [1 2 5 1] x = 1 2 5 a matrix 1 x = [1 2 3; 5 1 4; 3 2 -1] x = 1 5 3 transpose

Subscript indices must either be real positive integers or logicals. A(4,2) Error: ??? Index exceeds matrix dimensions.

Matlab Commands end Dummy Example while ((a>3) & (b==5)) Some Matlab Commands; end Use of M-File Click to create a new M-File Extension .m A text file containing script or function or program to run Use of M-File Save file as Denem430.m If you include ; at the end of each statement, result will not be shown immediately Writing User Defined Functions

Functions are m-files which can be executed by specifying some inputs and supply some desired outputs. The code telling the Matlab that an m-file is actually a function is function out1=functionname(in1) function out1=functionname(in1,in2,in3) function [out1,out2]=functionname(in1,in2) You should write this command at the beginning of the mfile and you should save the m-file with a file name same as the function name Writing User Defined Functions Examples Write a function : out=squarer (A, ind) Which takes the square of the input matrix if the input indicator is equal to 1 And takes the element by element square of the input matrix if the input indicator is equal to 2 Same Name

Writing User Defined Functions Another function which takes an input array and returns the sum and product of its elements as outputs The function sumprod(.) can be called from command window or an m-file as Notes: % is the neglect sign for Matlab (equaivalent of // in C). Anything after it on the same line is neglected by Matlab compiler. Sometimes slowing down the execution is done deliberately for observation purposes. You can use the command pause for this purpose pause %wait until any key pause(3) %wait 3 seconds

Useful Commands The two commands used most by Matlab users are >>help functionname >>lookfor keyword Questions ? ? ? ? ? Thank You
