Error in Octave

  1. Feb 22, 2009 #1
    When I generate a list x = (-10:0.1:10)

    and want to evaluate it using a function

    exp(x) * sin(x)

    I get this error

    wondering what's the problem here?

    try exp(x).*sin(x) which is a matrix element by element multiply which should give you a 1 x 101 matrix.

    Thanks in worked. Didn't know you had to use .* operator.
