Hi there. Is there any reason why I can't use sparse matrices in gain blocks in Simulink? Is there an alternative?

Regards, Mohamed

The MATLAB sparse matrix type is not supported with any block in Simulink as far as I know. You need to convert your matrix to a full matrix using the FULL command to be able to use it.
