Faster Indexing in Tables, datetime Arrays, and Other Data Types 9

Today I'd like to introduce a guest blogger, Stephen Doe, who works for the MATLAB Documentation team here at MathWorks. In today's post, Stephen discusses how to take advantage of recent performance improvements when indexing into tables. The same approach applies to many different data types. While the release notes describe the performance improvements, in today's post Stephen also offers further advice based on a simple code example.... read more >>

Get Smart, Be Logical! 1

Recently a customer asked me an interesting question about a good way to compute something. Before I sat down to tackle it, I happened to mention the problem to my pal, Sean. And he quickly answered, "max logical". It took me just a moment to realize what he was saying, and it is the answer to the problem. But when I heard it, I heard a person's name "Max Logical", and though I didn't know who that was, I immediately thought of Maxwell Smart, from the 60s tv comedy in the US, called "Get Smart".... read more >>

Logical Indexing – Multiple Conditions 22

I've talked about logical indexing before in some of the linked posts, but recent work makes me want to show it off again. One of the nice things about logical indexing is that it is very easy and natural to combine the results of different conditions to select items based on multiple criteria.... read more >>

Meet the Neighbors 13

Some calculations in MATLAB, including, for example, calculating local means or finite differences, or applying some other filter locally, operate on neighboring matrix elements. Doing so in an efficient manner is easy under the right conditions ... read more >>
