c = diag(a)

c = diag(a, b)


Computes a diagonal matrix or the diagonal of a matrix. diag(a, 0) is equivalent to diag(a).



Name Description
a Specifies a vector or matrix of any data type.
b Specifies a diagonal of a. b is an integer.


Name Description
c Returns a diagonal matrix or the diagonal of a matrix. c is a vector or matrix. If a is a matrix, diag(a) returns a column vector containing the diagonal of a and diag(a, b) returns a column vector containing the bth diagonal of a. If a is a vector of length n, diag(a, b) is a square matrix of size n+abs(b) with a bth diagonal determined by a.
