MAT 343 Laboratory 1

Matrix and Vector Computations in MATLAB

In this laboratory session we will learn how to

1. Create matrices and vectors.

2. Manipulate matrices and create matrices of special types

3. Add and multiply matrices

Preliminaries

The MATLAB Desktop Display

The MATLAB default desktop consists of four windows: the command window, the Current Directory

Browser, the Workspace Browser, and the Command History.

The command window is where MATLAB commands are entered and executed.

The Current Directory Browser allows you to view MATLAB and other files and to perform file

operations such as opening and editing or searching for files.

The Workspace Browser allows you to view and make changes to the contents of the workspace.

The Command History allows you to view a log of all the commands that have been entered in the

command window. To repeat a previous command, just click on the command to highlight it and

then double-click to execute it. You can also recall an edit command directly from the command

window by using the arrow keys. From the command window, you can use the up arrow to recall

previous commands. The commands can then be edited using the left and right arrow keys. Press

the Enter key of your computer to execute the edited command.

Any of the MATLAB windows can be closed by clicking on the in the upper right corner of the

window. To detach a window from the MATLAB desktop, click on the arrow that is next to the x in

the upper right corner of the window.

Help Facility MATLAB includes a HELP facility that provides help on all MATLAB features.

doc: if you type doc in the command window the MATLABs help browser will open (alternatively

you can click on the Help button in the Home toolbar .)

help : if you know the exact name of a function, you can get help on it by typing help functioname.

For example, typing help help provides help on the function help itself.

lookfor: If you are looking for a function, use lookfor keyword to get a list of functions with the

string keyword in them. For example, typing lookfor identity matrix lists functions (there

are two of them) that create identity matrices.

If you have never used MATLAB before, we suggest you type demo at the MATLAB prompt. Click

on Getting Started with MATLAB and run the file. Then move on to the demo on Working in the

Development Environment and the demo on Working with Arrays.

Matrices in MATLAB

Entering matrices in MATLAB is easy. For example, to enter the matrix

1

2

3

5

6

7

8

A=

9 10 11 12

13 14 15 16

type A=[1, 2, 3, 4; 5, 6, 7, 8; 9, 10, 11, 12; 13, 14, 15, 16]

or the matrix could be entered one row at a time:

A=[ 1 2 3 4

5 6 7 8

9 10 11 12

13 14 15 16]

Once a matrix has been entered, you can edit it. Here are some examples:

Input

Vectors

Vectors are special cases of matrices, with just one row or one column. They are entered the same way

as a matrix. For example

u = [1, 3, 9] produces a row vector

v = [1; 3; 9] produces a column vector.

Row vectors of equally spaced points can be generated with MATLABs : operation or using the

linspace command.

Generating Matrices

We can also generate matrices by using the built-in MATLAB functions. For example, the command

B=rand(4)

generates a 4 4 matrix whose entries are random numbers between 0 and 1. Here is a list of the most

common built-in matrices:

rand(m,n)

eye(m,n)

zeros(m,n)

ones(m,n)

triu(A)

tril(A)

diag(v,k)

m by n matrix with random numbers between 0 and 1

m by n matrix with 1s on the main diagonal

m by n matrix of zeros

m by n matrix of ones

extracts the upper triangular part of the matrix A

extracts the lower triangular part of the matrix A

square matrix with the vector v on the kth diagonal

The first four commands above with a single argument, e.g. ones(m), produce a square matrix of

dimension m.

More special matrices:

There is also a set of built-in special matrices such as magic, hilb, pascal, toeplitz, and vander.

The matrix building commands can be used to generate block of partitioned matrices. Here is an

example:

Input

E=[eye(2),ones(2,3);zeros(2),[1:3; 3:-1:1]]

E =

Addition and Multiplication of Matrices

Matrix arithmetic in MATLAB is straightforward. We can multiply our original matrix A times B

simply by typing A*B. The sum and difference of A and B are given by A + B and A – B, respectively.

The transpose of the real matrix A is given by A.

Exponentiation

Powers of matrices are easily generated. The matrix A5 is computed in MATLAB by typing A^5. We

can also perform operations element-wise by preceding the operand by a period.

For instance, if V=[1,2; 3,4], then

Input

ans =

V^2

Appending a row or a column

A row can be easily appended to an existing matrix provided the row has the same length of the rows

of the existing matrix. The same thing goes for the columns. The command A=[A, v] appends the

column vector v to the columns of A, while A = [A; u] appends the row vector u to the rows of A.

Columnwise Array Operators

MATLAB has a number of functions that, when applied to either a row or column vector x, returns

a single number. For example, the command max(x) will compute the maximum entry of x , and the

command sum(x) will return the value of the sum of the entries of x. Other functions of this form are

min, prod, mean. When used with a matrix argument, these functions are applied to each column vector

and the results are returned as a row vector.

EXERCISES

Instructions

You will need to record the results of your MATLAB session to generate your lab report. Create a

directory (folder) on your computer to save your MATLAB work in. Then use the Current Directory

field in the desktop toolbar to change the directory to this folder. Now type

diary lab1.txt

followed by the Enter key. Now each computation you make in MATLAB will be save in your directory

in a text file named lab1.txt. When you have finished your MATLAB session you can turn off the

recording by typing diary off at the MATLAB prompt. You can then edit this file using your favorite

text editor (e.g. MS Word).

Lab Write-up: Now that your diary file is open, enter the command format compact (so that when

you print out your diary file it will not have unnecessary spaces), and the comment line

% MAT 343 MATLAB Assignment # 1

Put labels to mark the beginning of your work on each part of each question, so that your edited lab

write-up has the format

MATLAB sessions: Laboratory 1

Final Editing of Lab Write-up: After you have worked through all the parts of the lab assignment

you will need to edit your diary file.

Remove all typing errors.

Unless otherwise specified, your write-up should contain the MATLAB input commands, the corresponding output,

and the answers to the questions that you have written.

If the question asks you to write an M-file, copy and paste the file into your diary file in the

appropriate position (after the problem number and before the output generated by the file).

If the question asks for a graph, copy the figure and paste it into your diary file in the appropriate

position. Crop and resize the figure so that it does not take too much space. Use ; to suppress

the output from the vectors used to generate the graph. Makes sure you use enough points for

your graphs so that the resulting curves are nice and smooth.

Clearly separate all questions. The questions numbers should be in a larger format and in boldface.

Preview the document before printing and remove unnecessary page breaks and blank spaces.

Put your name and class time on each page.

Important: An unedited diary file without comments submitted as a lab writeup is not

acceptable.

2. Check some linear algebra rules:

(a) Is matrix addition commutative? Compute A + B and then B + A. Are the results the

same?

(b) Is matrix addition associative? Compute (A + B) + C and A + (B + C) in the order

prescribed. Are the results the same?

(c) Is multiplication with a scalar distributive? Compute (A + B) and A + B, taking

= 5 and show that the results are the same.

(d) Is multiplication with a matrix distributive? Compute A(B + C) and compare with

AB + AC.

(e) Matrices are different from scalars!

(i) For scalars, ab = ac implies that b = c if a 6= 0. Is that true for matrices? Check by

computing AB and AC for the matrices given above.

(ii) In general, matrix products do not commute either (unlike scalar products). Check if AB

and BA give different results.

3. Create matrices with zeros, eye, ones, and triu: Create the following matrices with the

help of the matrix generation functions zeros, eye , ones, and triu. See the on-line help on these

functions if required (i.e. help eye)

5. Manipulate a matrix: Do the following operations on matrix G created above in Problem 4.

(a) Extract the first 4 4 submatrix from G and store it in the matrix H, that is, create a matrix

2 6 0 0

3 9 0 0

H=

0 0 3 4

by extracting the appropriate rows and columns from the matrix G.

(b) Replace G(5,5) with 4.

(c) What happens if you type G(:,:) and hit return? Do not include the output in your lab

report, but include a statement describing the output in words.

What happens if you type G(:) and hit return? Do not include the output in your lab report,

but include a statement describing the output in words.

(d) What do you get if you type G(7) and hit return? Can you explain how MATLAB got that

answer? Try G(16) to confirm your answer.

(e) What happens if you type G(12,1) and hit return?

(f) What happens if you type G(G>5) and hit return? Can you explain how MATLAB got that

answer? What happens if you type G(G>5) = 100 and hit return? Can you explain how

MATLAB got that answer?

(g) Delete the last row and the third column of the matrix G.

6. See the structure of a matrix: Create a 20 20 matrix with the command A = ones(20);

Now replace the 10 10 submatrix between rows 6:15 and columns 6:15 with zeros. See the

structure of the matrix (in terms of nonzero entries) with the command spy(A).

Set the 5 5 submatrices in the top right corner and bottom left corner to zeros and see the

structure again.

NOTE: Use semicolon to suppress the output for all the matrices in this problem. In your lab-write

up include the pictures obtained with the spy command. To include the pictures, open your diary

file using a word processor such as MS Word then, on the MATLAB figure, select Edit and Copy

Figure, and paste the picture into the Word file. Make sure you crop and resize the picture so

that it does not take up too much space.

7. Create a symmetric matrix: Create an upper triangular matrix with the following command:

A = diag(1:6) + diag(7:11, 1) + diag(12:15, 2)

Make sure you understand how this command works (see the on-line help on diag). Now use the

upper off-diagonal terms of A to make A a symmetric matrix with the following command:

A = A + triu(A,1)

c

MATLAB sessions: Laboratory 1

This command takes the upper triangular part of A above the main diagonal, flips it (transpose),

and adds to the original matrix A, thus creating a symmetric matrix A. See the on-line help on

triu.

8. Do some cool operations: Create a 10 10 random matrix with the command A = rand(10);

Now do the following operations:

(a) Multiply all elements of A by 100 and store the result in the matrix A. Then round off all

elements of the matrix to integers with the command A = fix(A).

(b) Replace all elements of A that are less than 10 with zeros (Hint: see exercise 5(f))

(c) Replace all elements of A > 90 with infinity (inf)

(d) Extract all 30 aij 50 in a vector b, that is, find all elements of A that are between 30

and 50 and put them in a vector b. (Hint: the logical operator & (AND) may be useful).

Introduction:

MATLAB is a programming language that is widely used in the field of engineering, science, and economics to perform complex computations. In this laboratory session, we will explore the fundamentals of matrix and vector computations in MATLAB.

Description:

This laboratory session is designed to provide beginners with a basic understanding of how to manipulate matrices and vectors in MATLAB. The MATLAB default desktop consists of four windows: the command window, the Current Directory Browser, the Workspace Browser, and the Command History. The command window is where MATLAB commands are entered and executed. We will learn how to create matrices and vectors, manipulate matrices, and create matrices of special types. Furthermore, we will focus on adding and multiplying matrices. To help beginners understand MATLAB, the HELP facility is available, which provides assistance on all MATLAB features. This laboratory session will give learners an opportunity to enter matrices in MATLAB, and they will be introduced to basic programming concepts such as editing commands and recalling previous commands. By the end of the session, learners should be able to perform basic matrix and vector computations in MATLAB.

Objectives:

1. To learn how to create matrices and vectors in MATLAB

2. To understand how to manipulate matrices and create matrices of special types in MATLAB

3. To master the skills of adding and multiplying matrices in MATLAB

Learning Outcomes:

1. Students will be able to create matrices and vectors in MATLAB using appropriate syntax

2. Students will be able to manipulate matrices and create matrices of special types such as identity matrix, zero matrix, etc. in MATLAB

3. Students will be able to add and multiply matrices using correct MATLAB commands and functions

4. Students will be able to navigate the MATLAB Desktop Display consisting of four windows: the command window, the Current Directory Browser, the Workspace Browser, and the Command History

5. Students will be able to use the help facility in MATLAB to get information about functions, keywords, etc.

6. Students will be able to enter matrices in MATLAB using both the semicolon and comma separators.

Solution 1: Creating Matrices and Vectors in MATLAB

To create matrices and vectors in MATLAB, we use the square brackets [] to enclose the numbers or expressions that we want to populate the matrix with. We can separate the entries with commas or semicolons, depending on how we want to structure the matrix.

For example, to create a matrix A with the entries:

1 2 3

4 5 6

7 8 9

We can enter the following command in MATLAB:

A = [1 2 3; 4 5 6; 7 8 9]

To create a row vector x with the entries:

1 2 3 4 5

We can enter the following command in MATLAB:

x = [1 2 3 4 5]

To create a column vector y with the entries:

6

7

8

9

10

We can enter the following command in MATLAB:

y = [6; 7; 8; 9; 10]

Solution 2: Matrix Manipulation and Operations in MATLAB

Once we have created matrices and vectors in MATLAB, we can manipulate them and perform operations on them. Here are some examples:

1. Transpose a matrix A:

We can obtain the transpose of a matrix A by using the apostrophe ‘ after the matrix name:

A_transpose = A’

2. Reshape a matrix A:

We can change the dimensions of a matrix A without changing its elements by using the reshape function:

B = reshape(A, 1, 9)

This command reshapes the 3×3 matrix A into a row vector B with the same elements.

3. Add matrices A and B:

To add matrices A and B, they must have the same dimensions. We can add them elementwise by using the plus sign + :

C = A + B

This command creates a matrix C with the same dimensions as A and B, where the entries are the sum of the corresponding entries in A and B.

4. Multiply matrices A and B:

To multiply matrices A and B, the number of columns of A must equal the number of rows of B. We can use the matrix multiplication operator * :

D = A * B

This command creates a matrix D with dimensions equal to the number of rows of A and the number of columns of B, where the entries are the result of multiplying the rows of A with the columns of B.
