c = companion(a)
Returns the companion matrix to a polynomial.
|a||Specifies the coefficients of a polynomial in descending order of power. The first element in a is the leading coefficient of the polynomial, which is 1 for a monic polynomial. Therefore, an input vector of size n produces a companion matrix of size (n-1)-by-(n-1). a is a vector.|
|c||Returns the companion matrix of a. The size of c equals the order of a.|
A = [1, 2, 3, 4]
C = companion(A)
