ka = [0;a];
i would expect to get the unaltered vector

Hi Tonkma,
I think you got what you wrote :)
You defined ka as a column not row (vector), since you used ";" instead of ",". So change ka to
ka = [0,a]
Hopefully this will solve your prob.

Hi Salaheddin,
thanks for fast response.
just now i had the possibility to test it on R2013b, there it works fine with column vectors.
so it looks like a bug in old version.
