(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

From wikipedia Vandermonde matrix is a matrix for all the indices i and j Vij=ai^(j-1).

In Matlab the function A = vander(v) returns the Vandermonde matrix whose columns are

powers of the vector v, that is, A(i,j) = v(i)^(n-j), where n =length(v).

2. Relevant equations

V(i,j)=a(i)^(j-1)

A(i,j) = v(i)^(n-j)

3. The attempt at a solution

V(i,j)=a(i)^(j-1) is correct.

Why? Is the second one wrong?
