# CrossMatrix

CrossMatrix[r]
gives a matrix whose elements are in a centered cross-shaped region that extends r positions along each index direction, and are otherwise.

CrossMatrix[r,w]
gives a ww matrix containing a cross-shaped region of s.

CrossMatrix[{r1,r2,},]
yields an array whose elements are in a centered cross-shaped region that extends positions in the i index direction.

## DetailsDetails

• The cross of s is always at the center of the region.
• In CrossMatrix[r] or CrossMatrix[{r1,}] the matrix or array is sized so as to just include all nonzero elements.
• CrossMatrix[All,w] gives a ww matrix containing a cross shape that is as large as possible.
• CrossMatrix[,{w1,w2,}] gives a array.
• CrossMatrix[{r1,,rn},w] gives a ww array.
• CrossMatrix[All,{w1,,wn}] gives a array containing a cross-shaped region that is as large as possible.
• Elements of CrossMatrix[r] are if their edit distance from the center is not more than 1.
• The parameter r need not be an integer; in an odd-dimensional array, the cross extends Floor[Abs[r+1/2]] pixels from the origin.
• The lines of the cross have width 1 if the corresponding dimension is odd and width 2 otherwise.
• For integer r, CrossMatrix[r] yields a matrix.
