Matrix and Vector Construction

Matrices, arrays, vectors, and special matrices


MuPAD® notebooks will be removed in a future release. Use MATLAB® live scripts instead.

To convert a MuPAD notebook file to a MATLAB live script file, see convertMuPADNotebook. MATLAB live scripts support most MuPAD functionality, although there are some differences. For more information, see Convert MuPAD Notebooks to MATLAB Live Scripts.

Examples and How To

Create Matrices

MuPAD supports creating and operating on vectors and multidimensional matrices.

Create Vectors

Vectors in MuPAD do not form a separate data type.

Create Special Matrices

MuPAD provides functions for creating special types of matrices such as identity, diagonal, Hilbert, Toeplitz, and other matrices.

Access and Modify Matrix Elements

MuPAD lets you access and change each individual element of a vector or a matrix.

Create Matrices over Particular Rings

The matrix command creates a matrix over Dom::ExpressionField().


Use Sparse and Dense Matrices

When you use matrices in MuPAD computations, both computational efficiency and memory use can depend on whether the matrix is sparse or dense.

Linear Algebra Library

Use only in the MuPAD Notebook Interface.
