### Basic Linear Algebraic Commands In Matlab

**inv(a):** Taking inverse of the matrix a in Matlab.

**a’ :** Taking tranpose of the a matrix in Matlab.

**det(a):** Calculation of determinant of matrix a in Matlab.

**a+b:** Addition of same dimension a and b matrices in Matlab.

**a-b:** Subtraction of same dimension a and b matrices in Matlab.

**a*b:** Multiplication of same dimension a and b matrices in Matlab.

**a/b :** If b is a regular square matrix(determinant of this matrix is different from zero), makes a*inv(b) calculation with same dimensioned b.

**a.*b:** The elements of matrix a and matrix b will be multiplied respectively around them.

**a./b:** The elements of matrix a and matrix b will be divided respectively around them.

**trace(a):** Diagonal elements of a matrix will be added in Matlab.

**diag(a): **A row vector will be created with diagonal elements of a matrix. Or if “a” is a vector, a matrix that includes diagonal elements of “a” vector will be created in Matlab.

**sum(a):** Whole rows of metrix a will be added. If “a” is a vector, the result will be the addition of vector a elements.

**triu(a): **The upper triangle matrix of a matrix will be created in Matlab.

**tril(a):** The lower triangle matrix of a matrix will be created in Matlab.
