You can use the \(\text{Z}_\text{R}\) function to generate a real zero matrix.

You can use the \zreal backslash command to insert this function.

The following variants of this function are available:

  • \(\text{real matrix } \text{Z}_\text{R} \left ( \text{<side>} \right )\)

  • \(\text{real matrix } \text{Z}_\text{R} \left ( \text{<rows>}, \text{<columns>} \right )\)

The single parameter version returns a square matrix. The \(\text{<side>}\) parameter indicates the number of rows and columns.

The two parameter version returns a matrix of arbitrary size. The \(\text{<rows>}\) and \(\text{<columns>}\) values specify the size of the generated matrix.

The function returns a real matrix holding 0’s.

Figure 225 shows the basic use of the \(\text{Z}_\text{R}\) function.
