#### Matrix in a matrix?

```Hi to all,

I've encountered a problem using Matlab. As I'm not very familiar
with matlab, there are functions which I have not used before.

What I would like to know, if there is a way to express a matrix
within a matrix. For example,

R= [ r1 r2 r3 ... rn]

where rn=[xn yn tn]

and xn, yn, tn are column of numbers.

I used the following code below to express the numbers in rn as
coloumns for easy referencing.

xn=r(:,1); %represents the columns in the matrix
yn=r(:,2);
tn=r(:,3);

My objective is to be able to retrieve information in the matrix
easily and compare their values. Meaning, the user will specify n and
the numbers in the columns.

thanks for the help..

Regards,

Cy
```

Dear Mat,

Thanks for your help. I was able to get the desired results. But at
the moment, I'm unable to retrieve the information that I need.

rincell =

[101x3 double] [101x3 double]

rincell(1,1)

ans =

[101x3 double]

I wanted to view the entire matrix in (1,1), but if gave me this
result instead. Is there a way where I can get it to display the
entire result?

Thanks!
Cy

```See help paren.

Also, if all your columns are the same length, you may want to
consider storing your data in three matrices, for ease of reference:

X = [x1 x2 ... xn];
Y = [y1 y2 ... yn];
T = [t1 t2 ... tn];

insert a matrix into matrix
hello, new to all this so excuse my ignorance lets say i have x = 1 2 3 4 which i convert to column vector x= 1 2 3 4 now i have a, created from the lengh of x in this case 4, and any value, lets say 4, so a= 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 now i want to insert x into a 4 times, so that a= 1 1 1 1 2 2 2 2 3 3 3 3 4 4 4 4 but i want to do this without a loop i can replace it with numbers using a(,:i)=x where i = 1 to 4 in this case, but i have to use a loop for that, did i explain that ok, can anyone help? cheeseboy On Fri, 19 Nov 2004 20:47:25 -0500, cheeseboy wrote: > hello...

Matrix of Matrix Names

indexing a matrix with a matrix
I'm trying to work out the syntax for indexing a 2D matrix with a matrix of coordinates. I know how to do the 1D version. If I have a 1D vector 'A' and a vector 'B' that contains index values; then I can do A(B) and it gives a vector the same length as 'B' with the values of 'A' that correspond to the indexes in 'B'. I can't seem to work out the 2D version. 'A' is now a 2D matrix. 'B' is now a matrix with 2 columns - 1st column is x values, second column is y values. So each row uniquely indexes a value in 'A'. But how do...

This number is saved in a new matrix called X so X is something like this a matrix of multiple rows by 1 column 10 12 14 15 now in other data the samplenumber is the number of rows, What i want to do is to select the data by trigger sample number So A= samplenumbers 10:12 and B= 12:14 etc. i thought of somethign like A=data(x(1,1),1:x(2,1),1) Where A is new variable and Data is the selected matrix with multiple rows(20000) and 1 column X is the triggersample number Than...
