Hi,
I have a for and if loop that takes several hours to run. I tried to vectorize the for loop, but the main issue is the way I use the if statement in my script. Refering the array values at subscript is really important, because if i don't use the subscript the final values (melt) are incorrect. Is there way to speed-up my processing time, while taking care of the subscripts in a three dimensional array.
for i = 1:300
for j = 1:500
for k = 1:17000
if(temp(i,:) > 2)
melt(i,j,k) = temp(i,j,k) .* 3;
else
melt(i,j,k) = 0;
end
end
end
end
Thank you.

for i = 1:10:300 % use step increments
for j = 1:10:500
for k = 1:1000:17000
if(temp(i,:) > 2)
melt(i,j,k) = temp(i,j,k) .* 3;
else
melt(i,j,k) = 0;
end
end
end
end

I = 1:10:300;
J = 1:10:500
K = 1:1000:17000
for i = 1:length(I) % use step increments
for j = 1:length(J)
for k = 1:length(K)
if(temp(I(i),:) > 2)
melt(I(i),J(j),K(k)) = temp(I(i),J(j),K(k)) .* 3;
else
melt(I(i),J(j),K(k)) = 0;
end
end
end
end
An alternative way to avoid problem of zeros values in matrix can be done using above
% or use
melt(melt == 0) = []; % to get rid of zeros in the final matrix
