Performing Matrix Math

DADiSP allows you to display and manipulate two-dimensional matrix data in the same way you would a single column or one-dimensional series of data. This section introduces the DADiSP functions that process and evaluate matrices. In DADiSP, a matrix is considered a rectangular or square table of data.


A matrix can be a table of multi-column data that you read into a window with the READTABLE function; or it can be a table created from a single column of data with the RAVEL command. DADiSP lets you perform mathematical operations on both real and complex matrices. All DADiSP matrix operations are performed with IEEE Standard double-precision floating point arithmetic.
