Problem with creating a matrix

Hello!

I want to create a matrix having one row and multiple columns. I am doing it as follows:

\usepackage{amsmath}

y(k)=
\begin{bmatrix}
a_{0}&a_{1}&a_{2}&b_{1}&b_{2}&c_{1}&c_{2}&d_{1}&d_{2}&e_{1}&e{2}
\end{bmatrix}

I am getting the error:

! Extra alignment tab has been changed to \cr.

The matrix currently has 11 columns. If I reduce the columns to 10, the error does not appear.

What can be the reason for this?

Re: Problem with creating a matrix

Hi,

the reason is that amsmath uses 10 array columns internally. You could adjust that by setting the counter MaxMatrixCols:
Code: Select all  •  Open in writeLaTeX
\setcounter{MaxMatrixCols}{11}
