Plot the graph of s against t. 4. % Stop. This plan may seem trivial to you, and a waste of time writing down. Yet you would be surprised how many beginners, preferring to rush straight to the computer, start with step 2 instead of step 1. It is well worth developing the mental discipline of structure-planning your program first. You could even use cut and paste to plan as follows: 1. Type the structure plan into the Editor (each line preceded by % as shown above). 2. Paste a second copy of the plan directly below the first.

Lookfor eigenvalue displays all the functions relating to eigenvalues. (There is one problem with the results that you get in the command window. The commands are, for emphasis only, in upper case; when used they must be typed as lower case. This is because the latest versions of MATLAB are case sensitive; hence, a and A are considered different names. ) in the task bar at the top of the MATLAB desktop window. The examples are correctly reproduced in the help manuals found by clicking on the ? ) 10.

00 Note: 1. In the statement B = A * (1 + r)ˆ n, the expression (1 + r)ˆ n is evaluated first, because exponentiation has a higher precedence than multiplication. 43 Essential MATLAB for Engineers and Scientists 2. After that each element of the vector A is multiplied by the scalar (1 + r) ˆ n (scalar expansion). 3. * would not cause an error because a scalar is a special case of an array). 4. A table is displayed, with columns given by the transposes of A and B. This process is called vectorization of a formula.
