# Matlab and Simulink Helpers

Simulink is a conceptually simple, easy to learn and fast-paced mathematical language. It’s an entirely different way of programming than object-oriented languages like Java or .NET.

When learning Matlab you will firstly need to download the correct Matlab setup software. This should be provided by the Matlab developer and should allow you to create Matlab scripts and run Matlab commands from the command line. Not all Matlab setups are exactly the same.

On your first run Simulink will most likely not be installed. If you get this message, then try again. If the same problem happens then check whether you have the Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable Package (x86) for Matlab installed. Install this program and then restart Matlab and you should see a message stating that Simulink has been successfully installed.

After Simulink has been installed, you should now be able to start Simulink in its default settings. At this point you can start creating Matlab functions.

To create Matlab functions you should go to the toolbar menu, click on the “run” icon and then select “create function”. You should then select the functions that you want to perform. To make Matlab function work simply click on the Simulink tab and change the implementation parameter (the one that specifies the input parameters). Also select the type of implementation (simplified or constructor) and then click on the “run” button.

The Simulink code will automatically be translated into Matlab code and then run by Matlab. If you have any changes made to the Simulink code after it has been run, you can reload it by clicking on the “run” button and then selecting “reload code”.

The functionality of Matlab is also translated into Simulink code. In Matlab the algorithm is implemented with the help of a matrix of cells. This matrix contains the set of all the cell coordinates.

Matlab has two kinds of matrix operations – dot product and cross product. A dot product is a distance between two matrices. Cross products are calculated on the basis of similarity between two matrices.

When a Matlab function is called it performs a single dot product. In order to compute a cross product in Matlab, it is necessary to have a matrix which contains two elements, the ones in the form of either an “I” or an “s”.

Simulink provides a number of helper tools that help you when working with matrices. The most important of these is the Matrix Twin which is responsible for converting any Matlab function into a Simulink function.

The matrix twin can be used in two ways: at the Matrix tab of the “run” menu and at the Function tab of the “run” menu. The Matrix Twin will then open a command line window where you can type the name of the matrix in the command line. The Matrix Twin will also display any Matlab functions which are identical to the one you just typed in the command line.

Another useful Matlab tool is the Multiply/Divide tool. This will convert any Matlab function that has parameters such as x(0) and x(1) into two Matlab functions with identical names as their counterparts in the Matrix Twin. These can then be combined using the Array Intersection operator.
