hi all, when i am calculating eigenvalue of 5 by 5 matrix that time i am getting 1.0e+003*, 1.050, 0.0050,0,0,0 as result. what is 1.0e+003* in Matlab? what does * signify? please clarify. Thanks in advance
You may wish to give the command
format short g
format long g
1.0e+003 = 1000
Try in command window.. And no need to worry about this result..
When you have y = Xe-3 that's a shorter way of saying y = X * 10^-3. Since multiplication distributes and the e operator only looks for the next number by default, yes, 1e-3 * X = X * 1e-3 = X * 10^-3. Likewise for addition.
