linspace

Generate linearly spaced vectors

Syntax

y = linspace(a,b)
y = linspace(a,b,n)

Description

The linspace function generates linearly spaced vectors. It is similar to the colon operator ":", but gives direct control over the number of points.

y = linspace(a,b) generates a row vector y of 100 points linearly spaced between and including a and b.

y = linspace(a,b,n) generates a row vector y of n points linearly spaced between and including a and b. For n = 1, linspace returns b.

Examples

Create a vector of 100 linearly spaced numbers from 1 to 500:

A = linspace(1,500);

Create a vector of 12 linearly spaced numbers from 1 to 36:

A = linspace(1,36,12);
