MATLAB Function Reference
ge

Test for greater than or equal to

Syntax

• ```A >= B
ge(A, B)
```

Description

```A >= B ``` compares each element of array `A` with the corresponding element of array `B`, and returns an array with elements set to logical 1 (`true`) where `A` is greater than or equal to `B`, or set to logical 0 (`false`) where `A` is less than `B`. Each input of the expression can be an array or a scalar value.

If both `A` and `B` are scalar (i.e., 1-by-1 matrices), then MATLAB returns a scalar value.

If both `A` and `B` are nonscalar arrays, then these arrays must have the same dimensions, and MATLAB returns an array of the same dimensions as `A` and `B`.

If one input is scalar and the other a nonscalar array, then the scalar input is treated as if it were an array having the same dimensions as the nonscalar input array. In other words, if input `A` is the number 100, and `B` is a 3-by-5 matrix, then `A` is treated as if it were a 3-by-5 matrix of elements, each set to 100. MATLAB returns an array of the same dimensions as the nonscalar input array.

```ge(A, B) ``` is called for the syntax `A` `>=` `B` when either `A` or `B` is an object.

Examples

Create two 6-by-6 matrices, `A` and `B`, and locate those elements of `A` that are greater than or equal to the corresponding elements of `B`:

• ```A = magic(6);
B = repmat(3*magic(3), 2, 2);

A >= B
