#### MatLab Basics Question

```Hello.  I'm extremely new to MatLab.  I'm a student... and I have an assignement that requires me to use it.  No, I'm not asking for "Can someone do my homework?"  I need help with the basics.  My professor gave my class a 5 minute tutorial, and then gave us this crazy assignment.. and I'm lost.  How do I set up the following in MatLab?  I have no clue...

The S-MF with two parameters l and r (l<r) is an S-shaped open-right Membership FUnction defined by:
|  0,                                     for x<= 1,
S(x;l,r))=        ---+  2((x-l)/(r-l))^2,               for l < x <= (l+r)/2
|  1-2((r-x)/(r-l))^2            for (l+r)/2 < x <= r
+  1,                                     for r < x

The Z-MF with two parameters l and r (l<r) is a Z-shaped open-left Membership Function defined by:

+ 0,                             for x<= 1
| 2((x-l)/(r-l))^2,         for l<x<=(l+r)/2
Z(x;l,r) =1-S(x;l,r)= --+ 1-2((r-x)/(r-l))^2     for (l+r)/2<x<=r
|  1,                             for r<x

I need to write MatLab functions to implement these before I can even do my assignment... but i have no idea how.
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
THanks!

----------------------------------
Eric:
A bunch of if statements inside the function definition should do it.
Just check the value of "x" in an if-elseif-elseif-else statement and
you can do it.  Same basic structure that you would do in any language
so if you can program in any language, you should be all ready to go.
Just check the help documentation for the if statement to get the
syntax right.  Alternatively you can use a switch statement.
Good luck

What value should it have if r < x <= 1 ? According to the first line, it must have value 0
because then x <= 1, but according to the 4th line it would have to have value +1 because
r < x.

If one takes the top-most constraint as having highest priority, then consider code
of the form

if x <= 1
result = 0;
elseif l < x && x <= (l+r)/2
result = 2*((x-l)/(r-l)).^2;
elseif <etc>
end

If you need to extend this to handle a vector of x values, you should look up
"logical indexing" in the Matlab documentation.
