What maximum and minimum number this MATLAB function normrnd(mu,sigma) can output? If the mean = 0 and S.D =2? and what happen if we increase the S.D in this fucntion.

Ideally, there are no such maximum and minimum. A normal (Gaussian) pdf has infinite support, so it can produce any value, no matter how high or low, with positive probability. Of course, exceeding a value *x* is less probable as *x* grows; but the probability is never 0.

In reality, Matlab cannot represent values with absolute value greater than `realmax`

(about 10^308). But that's a very large number, and the probability of reaching a value close to that is *very* small.

The S.D is a scale factor of the distribution. A greater S.D. tends to produce random numbers with larger absolute value. You can think about it this way: you generate a number according to a *standard_* normal distribution (0 mean, 1 S.D.), and then you multiply times the actual S.D. and add the actual mean.

Use unique with the 'stable'option: str = 'FDFACCFFFBDCGGHBBCFGE'; result = unique(str, 'stable'); If you want something more manual: use bsxfun to build a logical index of the elements that haven't appeared (~any(...)) before (triu(..., 1)): result = str(~any(triu(bsxfun(@eq, str, str.'), 1))); ...

From the Matlab forums, the dir command output sorting is not specified, but it seems to be purely alphabetical order (with purely I mean that it does not take into account sorter filenames first). Therefore, you would have to manually sort the names. The following code is taken from this...

The documentation: http://www.mathworks.com/help/matlab/ref/load.html, shows that you can supply a string to load by doing: load(filename) where filename is a string. In your case, you can do: load(['sourceETA/Record1/result',num2str(n),'.txt']) ...

You can extract the numerator and denominator with numden, then get their coefficiens with coeffs, normalize the polynomials, and divide again. [n,d] = numden(T); cn = coeffs(n); cd = coeffs(d); T = (n/cn(end))/(d/cd(end)); The output of latex(T) (note: no simplifyFraction now; it would undo things): Of course this isn't equal...

My bet is that trf is a very large matrix. In these cases, the surface has so many edges (coloured black by default) that they completely clutter the image, and you don't see the surface patches One solution for that is to remove the edges: surf(trf, 'edgecolor', 'none'). Example: with...

I think you are looking for "path planning" rather than clustering. The traveling salesman problem comes to mind If you want to use clustering to find the individual regions you should find the coordinates for each location with respect to some global frame.

TL;DL: net.trainParam.max_fail = 8; I've used the example provided in the page you linked to get a working instance of nntraintool.

First, you have to know that fitcknn & ClassificationKNN.fit will end up with the same result. The difference is that fitcknn is a more recent version, so it allows more options. As an example, if you use load fisheriris; X = meas; Y = species; Then this code will work...

You should be able to use properties s = 100; d = zeros(1,100); end right? If you already have the 100 as a default for s, you should also be able to provide this as part of the default for d. I'm guessing that you're trying to avoid doing that...

The strings defined in the legend command are assigned in order of the plots being generated. This means that your first string 'signal1' is assigned to the plot for signal1 and the second string 'signal2' is assigned to the vertical line. You have two possibilities to fix this problem. Execute...

Generally this is done (if the eq is in the format you have) with an Ax=b system. Let me show you how to do it with a simple example of 2 eq with 2 unknowns. 3*l1-4*l2=3 5*l1 -3*l2=-4 You can build the system as: x (unknowns) will be a unknowns...

In increasing order of generality: If the second column is always cyclical: reshape and sum: result = sum(reshape(A(:,1), m, []), 2); If the second column consists of integers: use accumarray: result = accumarray(A(:,2), A(:,1)); In the most general case, you need unique before accumarray: [~, ~, u] = unique(A(:,2)); result...

This is quite simple; just feed into subplot the locations as a vector. For instance, x = -2*pi:0.01:2*pi; subplot(2,2,[1,3]) plot(x,sin(x)) subplot(2,2,2) plot(x,cos(x)) subplot(2,2,4) plot(x,x.^2) gives: ...

It's very simple. I actually wouldn't use the code above and use the image processing toolbox instead. There's a built-in function to remove any white pixels that touch the border of the image. Use the imclearborder function. The function will return a new binary image where any pixels that were...

You can change the XTickLabels property using your own format: set(gca,'XTickLabels',sprintfc('1e%i',0:numel(xt)-1)) where sprintfc is an undocumented function creating cell arrays filled with custom strings and xt is the XTick you have fetched from the current axis in order to know how many of them there are. Example with dummy data:...

The "weird behavior and lag" you see is almost always a result of callbacks interrupting each other's execution, and repeated unnecessary executions of the same callbacks piling up. To avoid this, you can typically set the Interruptible property of the control/component to 'off' instead of the default 'on', and set...

Unless you have some implementation bug (test your code with synthetic, well separated data), the problem might lay in the class imbalance.

As suggested in the comments, the error is because x is of dimension 3x2 and theta of dimension 1x2, so you can't do X*theta. I suspect you want: theta = [0;1]; % note the ; instead of , % theta is now of dimension 2x1 % X*theta is now a...
