# Some Basic Operations On Matrices and Vectors.....

The Matlab notation for binary operations on matrices,vectors and there elements are as follows:

•   + : -  For matrix or element addition
•   -  : -  For matrix or element subtraction.
•   .* : - For element wise multiplication
•   *  : - For matrix multiplication
•   ./  : - For element wise division.
•   /   : - For right matrix division (right multiplication by an inverse).
•   \   : - For left matrix division ( left multiplication by an inverse)

There is also Matlab notation for a few unary operations
•   .^  : -  For raising an element to a power.
•   ^   : -  For raising a matrix to a power.
•   '    : -  For converting to complex conjugate transpose (single forward quote).
Matlab also has specific notation and symbols for delimiters, separators, grouping, type assignment, and so forth : Essential among these are :
•  [ ]   : - For vector and Matrix delimiter.
•  ( )   : - For grouping vector and matrix element indicies, function argument delimiter.
•  :      : - For index range separator
•  :      : - For matrix row separator.

• blank space : - For matrix column element separator.
• , comma      : - For matrix index separator, function argument separator.
• . period        : - For radix expansion separator ( American convention).
• ' ' single forward quotes : - For demarcation of character strings..

Hope to see you in next tutorial....!!!!
