Introduction to MATLAB and MATLAB Scripting



  • A variable should have a name
  • Values should be assigned to the variable with a '=' operator
  • A variable can have an alphabetical character value  K = 'l'
  • Variable can also have an integer value K = '2009'
  • Decimal values can also be assigned to a variable

           Pi = '3.14159'

  • The vector is a collection of numbers in one dimension
    • t = [12 15 18 33], if individual elements are separated by spaces, then they are stored as individual columns in MATLAB
    • t = [24;3;56;92], if individual elements are separated by semicolon, then they are stored as individual rows in MALTAB

             Note :- If vectors or matrices change size in your calculations then their size should be preallocated.
