Learning Goals Turn On MATLAB and use as a calculator
Create Basic Cartesian Plots Write and Save simple “Script” Program-files Execute Conditional Statements IF, THEN, ELSE, >, <, >=, etc. Execute Loop Statements FOR & WHILE

MATLAB Environment TWO Interaction Modes INTERACTIVE
Type in the COMMAND WINDOW Often Called a Command-Window “Session” Interaction is NOT Saved to Disk Commands (NOT results) Stored in “Command History” Buffer Window STORED → Two Types SCRIPT Files FUNCTION Files

MATLAB Command Window Typing Occurs Here

Example Cmd Window Session
>> %Use MATLAB As Calculator >> 17*19 ans = 323 >> 77/ >> 64^(1/3) + 32^0.2 6 >> (7+11)*2.5 ans = 45 >> L = 14.4 L = >> W = 13.3 W = >> Area = L*W Area = Time For Live Demo Demo left division shown 7\3 = 3/7

Script/Function File Editor

Script & Function Files (m-files)
SCRIPTS and FUNCTIONS in MATLAB are stored in text files that end with the extension “.m” These files are called m-files SCRIPTS (a.k.a. “programs”) Scripts files are useful for automating tasks that may need to be repeated. They have no input/output parameters They can (but probably shouldn’t) share variables with the command workspace

Script & Function Files (m-files)
SCRIPTS (cont.) Scripts are sequences of interactive statements stored in a file i.e., They look liked Stored versions of Command Window Sessions FUNCTIONS (a.k.a. “subroutines”) Function m-files are MATLAB subprograms analogous to FORTRAN Subroutines, or C functions They communicate with the command window and other functions via a list of INPUT and OUTPUT PARAMETERS or ARGUMENTS

Script & Function Files (m-files)
FUNCTIONS (cont.) Functions COMMUNICATE with the COMMAND WINDOW and other m-files via a list of input and output variables LOCAL variables are variables defined INSIDE the function They only can be used inside the function in which they reside. The number of output parameters used when a function is called must match the number of outputs that the function is expected to return Good Example from ENGR43 = Rectab.m & MagPh.m

Entering Commands & Expressions
MATLAB retains your previous keystrokes. Use the up-arrow (↑) key to scroll back through the commands. Press the key (↑) once to see the previous entry, and so on. Use the down-arrow (↓) key to scroll forward. Edit a line using the left (←) & right (→) arrow keys the Backspace key, and the Delete key. Press the Enter key to execute the command

Arithmetic Scalar Operations
Symbol Operation MATLAB ^ exponentiation: ab a^b * multiplication: ab a*b / right division: a/b a/b \ left division: b/a a\b + addition: a + b a + b - subtraction: a - b a - b DEMO: 21/7 = 3 = 7\21 LEFT-Division A\b read from Right-to-Left as: “b divided by A”

Math Op Precedence (PEMDAS)
Precedence Operation First Parentheses, evaluated starting with the innermost pair. Second Exponentiation, evaluated from left to right. Third Multiplication and Division with EQUAL precedence, evaluated from left to right. Fourth Addition and Subtraction with EQUAL precedence, evaluated from left to right. Demo 19^2/3 is NOT the same as 19^(2/30

Precedence Examples >> 8+3*5 ans = 23 >> 8 + (3*5)
>>(8 + 3)*5 55 >> 4^2-12-8/4*2 ans = >> 4^2-12-8/(4*2) 3 4 1

Precedence Examples cont.
>> 3*4^2 + 5 ans = 53 >>(3*4)^2 + 5 149 >>27^(1/3) + 32^0.2 ans = 5 >>27^1/3 + 32^0.2 11 48 3 144 9

“=“ → Assignment Operator
Typing x = 3 ASSIGNS the value 3 to the variable x. We can then type x = x This assigns the value = 5 to x. But in algebra this implies that 0 = 2. In algebra we can write x+2 = 20, but in MATLAB we cannot. In MATLAB the LEFT side of the = operator MUST be a SINGLE variable. The Right side must be a computable value

Work Session Commands Command Description clc
Clears the Command window clear Removes all variables from memory clear v1 v2 Removes the variables v1 and v2 from memory exist(‘var’) Determines if a file or variable exists having the name ‘var’ quit Stops MATLAB

Work Session Commands cont.1
Description who Lists the variables currently in memory whos Lists the current variables and sizes, and indicates if they have imaginary parts. : (Colon) Generates an array having regularly spaced elements , (Comma) Separates elements of an array ; (Semicolon) Suppresses screen printing; also denotes a new row in an array … (Ellipsis) Continues a line

whos on First???

Special VARS & const’s Command Description ans
Temporary variable containing the most recent answer eps Specifies the accuracy of floating point precision i,j The imaginary unit (-1) Inf Infinity (unbounded magnitude) NaN Indicates an undefined numerical result; a.k.a., Not a Number pi The number pi ( ) DEMO Inf: undef = 37/0 => undef = Inf NaN returns the IEEE arithmetic representation for Not-a-Number (NaN). These result from operations which have undefined numerical results. NaN returns the IEEE arithmetic representation for Not-a-Number (NaN). These result from operations which have undefined numerical results;. e.g., try Q = 0/0

The Complex Plane Im (i or j) Re

Complex-Number Operations
The number c1 = 1 – 2i is entered as: c1 = 1­2i or c1 = 1-2j An Asterisk is NOT needed between i or j and a NUMBER, although it is required with a VARIABLE, such as c2 = 5 - i*c1. Be careful. The expressions y = 7/2*i and x = 7/2j give two DIFFERENT results: y = (7/2)i = 3.5i and x = 7/(2j) = –3.5j

Complex Arithmetic >> Im_Pwr = Z1^3.84 Im_Pwr =
e e+004i >> e_to_Z = exp(Z2) e_to_Z = 6.8518e e+007i >> ln_Z = log(Z1) ln_Z = i >> Log_Z = log10(Z2) Log_Z = i

Special VARS & const’s Command Description format short
Four decimal digits (the default); format long 16 digits; format short e Five digits (four decimals) plus exponent; e+03 format long e 16 digits (15 decimals) plus exponent; e–04

Discrete Math Funtions
Command Description factor(n) Returns a row vector containing the prime factors of n. gcd(m,n) Finds the Greatest Common Divisor/Factor of m & n lcm(m,n) Finds the Least Common Multiple for m & n factorial(n) Returns the factorial of n; i.e., returns n! = 1*2*3…(n-2)*(n-1)*n primes(n) Finds all prime numbers less than n isprime(n) Determines if n is a prime number Demo by: >> isprime(97) ans = 1 * >> isprime(98) ans = 0 >> factor(98) ans = * >> gcf = gcd(51,119) gcf = 17

Discrete Math Examples
factor777 = factor(777) factor777 = GCF = gcd(1001, 1105) GCF = 13 F7 = factorial(7) F7 = 5040 P93 = primes(93) P93 = Columns 1 through 12 Columns 13 through 24

Arrays An ARRAY is an ORDERED SET of Numbers of with n DIMENSIONS
A regular Number (a SCALAR) is an Array of Dimension ZERO a VECTOR is a 1-Dim Array a MATRIX is an ARRAY of Dim  2 with special properties Graphics from SemaTech site Or

Arrays in MATLAB The numbers 0, 0.1, 0.2, …, 10 can be assigned to the array variable u by typing u = [0:0.1:10] To compute w = 5 sin u for u = 0, 0.1, 0.2, 0.3, 0.4,…, 10, the command session is; >>u = [0:0.1:10]; >>w = 5*sin(u); The single line, w = 5*sin(u), computed the formula, w = 5 sin(u), 101 times.

Array Index >>u(7) ans = 0.6000 >>w(7) 2.8232
Use the LENGTH function to determine how many values are in an array. >>m = length(w) m = 101

DIARY Function to Record Cmnds
Keeping a Session Log → The diary Function The diary function creates a copy of your session in MATLAB on a disk file, including keyboard input and system responses, but excluding graphics. You can view and edit the resulting text file using any text editor, such as the MATLAB Editor. To create a file on your disk called sept23.out that contains all the functions you enter, as well as output from MATLAB, enter diary('sept23.out') To stop recording the session, use diary('off') To view the file, run edit('sept23.out')

Command Execution Hierarchy
When you type problem1 MATLAB first checks to see if problem1 is a variable and if so, displays its value. If not, MATLAB then checks to see if problem1 is one of its own commands, and executes it if it is. If not, MATLAB then looks in the current directory for a file named problem1.m and executes problem1 if it finds it. If not, MATLAB then searches the directories in its search path, in order, for problem1.m and then executes it if found.

System, Directory, File Cmnds
Command Description addpath dirname Adds the directory dirname to the search path. cd dirname Changes the current directory to dirname dir Lists all files in the current directory dir dirname Lists all the files in the directory dirname path Displays the MATLAB search path pathtool Starts the Set Path tool HINT: Consider putting ALL your m-files in ONE Folder/Directory
