Cross product

`C = cross(A,B)`

`C = cross(A,B,dim)`

`C = cross(`

returns
the cross product of `A,B`

)`A`

and `B`

.

If

`A`

and`B`

are vectors, then they must have a length of 3.If

`A`

and`B`

are matrices or multidimensional arrays, then they must have the same size. In this case, the`cross`

function treats`A`

and`B`

as collections of three-element vectors. The function calculates the cross product of corresponding vectors along the first array dimension whose size equals 3.
