# Matrix functions

## Matrix construction

- MAKE(
*r*,*c*,[*v*])Creates a*r*×*c*matrix (*r*rows and*c*columns) with all elements equal to v. - MAGIC(
*n*) Creates a*n*×*n*matrix with as elements the integers 1 through n^{2}, with equal row and column sums. - MRND(
*r*,*c*) Creates a*r*×*c*matrix (*r*rows and*c*columns) with random numbers. - DIAG(
**A**) Creates a diagonal matrix. - UNIT(
**A**) Returns a unit matrix with the same dimensions of the square matrix**A**. - ONES(
**A**) returns a matrix with the same dimensions as matrix**A**with all elements equal to 1. - ZERO(
**A**) Returns a matrix with the same dimensions as matrix**A**with all elements equal to zero. - CVEC(min,max,n) Returns a column vector with n number or rows, with evenly spaced values ranging from min to max.
- RVEC(min,max,n) Returns a row vector with n number or columns, with evenly spaced values ranging from min to max .

## Add and remove columns and rows

- CBIND(
**A**,**B**[,..]) Returns a matrix with matrix**B**appended to matrix**A**, columnswise. - RBIND(
**A**,**B**[,..]) Returns a matrix with matrix**B**appended to matrix**A**, rowwise. - CDEL(
**A**,c) Returns the matrix**A**without column c. - RDEL(
**A**,r) Returns the matrix**A**without row r.

## Matrix properties
