Yes, but the bidiagonal form not the tridiagonal form of wilkinson matrix.

I know nothing about wilkinson matrices but every reference I find only mention tridiagonal matrices.

It looks like for the bidiagonal form, that the main diagonal should be n:-1:1 and that the diagonal to the right of it should be all n .
You can construct bidiagonal matrices by using diag() to construct each of the diagonals, and adding the matrices together.

n = 10;
W = spdiags([n:-1:1; n*ones(1,n)]',[0 1],n,n);

I believe that this is a homework assignment that specifically requires diag() be used.
