Generates a matrix of a specific type.

Type of matrix this node generates.

Let *n* represent the matrix size, *x* represent the input **vector 1**, *n**x* represent the size of *x*, and *y* represent the input **vector 2**, *n**y* represent the size of *y*, and *B* represent the output **special matrix**.

**Default: **Identity

Matrix used to compose part of a Diagonal, Toeplitz, Vandermonde, Companion, or Hankel matrix.

This input accepts an array of double-precision, floating point numbers or array of complex double-precision, floating point numbers.

Matrix used to compose part of either a Toeplitz or Hankel matrix.

This input accepts an array of double-precision, floating point numbers or array of complex double-precision, floating point numbers.

Number of dimensions of the generated matrix.

Error conditions that occur before this node runs.

The node responds to this input according to standard error behavior.

Standard Error Behavior

Many nodes provide an **error in** input and an **error out** output so that the node can respond to and communicate errors that occur while code is running. The value of **error in** specifies whether an error occurred before the node runs. Most nodes respond to values of **error in** in a standard, predictable way.

**Default: **No error

The generated matrix.

This output can return a 2D array of double-precision, floating point numbers or 2D array of complex double-precision, floating point numbers.
