Kindly tell me that what is the code for generating a triangular waveform in matlab. . .?
i am new in matlab............

A triangular wave is simply alternating lines with positive and negative slopes between upper and lower limits.

I haven't programmed matlab in awhile, but I envision nested while loops, one overall loop for the number of periods of the wave, one for the "up" line, and one for the "down" line...something like this:


while(i=0; i<periods; i++){

while(j=lowerLimit; j<upperLimit; j++)
     answerMatrix[length(answerMatrix) + 1] = upperLimit;
while(k=upperLimit; k>lowerLimit; k--)
     answerMatrix[length(answerMatrix) + 1] = lowerLimit;


I'm not saying that this will compile, but it's probably one way to do it.

Do you want an array of increasing and decreasing numbers or do you want an electrical signal coming from loudspeaker or the line out jack?

What is the amplitude, period and sampling frequency?

To generate an array with the numbers from 0 to 9, simply write:

x = [0:9]

To generate an array with the numbers from 10 to 1:

y = [10:-1:1]

To concatenate the two arrays:

z = [ x y]

You can write this all in one line:

z = [ [0:9] [10:-1:1] ]

As you can see, this is a lot easier than C.

no no..............
i think u don't get my question.....
i just want to ask that.....
as we write for sawtooth wave
so i just asking about the notation of triangular wave

I think you're talking about the function fs_tri(N) it is a function that accept number of harmonics, n as input and produce the Fourier series waveform up to and included n harmonics, it can be implemented as follow:

function fs_tri(N)
x = linspace(0, 10);
f = ones(1,100)*pi;
for i = 1:N
b = -2/i;
f = f + b*sin(i*x);

i got it..........
it is
this is to plot triangular wave
