Column multiplication in the same matrix

14 views (last 30 days)
I have a 3 by 3 matrix and would like to loop and multiply column 1 with all other columns but not itself and also column 2 with other columns but not itself and column 3 with other columns but not itself.
x11 = [1 2 3; 4 5 3; 2 8 3];
[m12, n12] = size(x11);
for i = 1:m12
for j = 1:n12
x1x1(i, j)=x11(i, j).*x11(i, j)
end
end

Try this:
x11 = [1 2 3; 4 5 3; 2 8 3];
[m12, n12] = size(x11);
for k1 = 1:n12
x11t = x11; % Copy ‘x11’
idx = setdiff(1:n12, k1) % Columns To Be Multiplied
x11t(:,idx) = bsxfun(@times, x11(:,idx), x11(:,k1)) % Assign Multiplied ‘Columns To Be Multiplied’ To Appropriate Columns Of ‘x11t’
x1x1(:,:,k1) = x11t; % Store In Output Array
end
It appears to do what you want.

Here you go:
[nr,nc] = size(x11);
for col = 1 : nc
col_data = x11(:,col);
col_prod = bsxfun(@times,col_data,x11(:,~all(ismember(x11,col_data))));
col_prod % you can store this in another array
end

Thanks for the respond but I am not getting the desire result. The resulting matrix should look like this [2 6 3; 20 15 12; 16 24 6]. Again, column 1 multiplies columns 2 and 3 and column 3 multiplies column 1.

ok. I see what you mean. You are basically multiplying the columns of a matrix while ignoring the currently selected column.
x11 = [1 2 3; 4 5 3; 2 8 3];
[nr,nc] = size(x11);
for col = 1 : nc
col_data = x11(:,col);
tempX11 = x11(:,~all(ismember(x11,col_data)));
col_prod = tempX11(:,1).*tempX11(:,2);
col_prod % you can store this in another array
end

I believe this works as expected:
x11 = [1 2 3; 4 5 3; 2 8 3];
[nr,nc] = size(x11);
for col = 1 : nc
col_data = x11(:,col);
tempX11 = x11(:,~all(ismember(x11,col_data)));
col_prod = tempX11(:,1).*tempX11(:,2);
col_prod % you can store this in another array
end

It also worked but the result is not in a matrix format. I will work that out. Anyway, thanks.

@Mahmoud Solomon Hi Mahmoud, do you know how to store these arrays in one matrix? I'm having the same problem now. Thank you^^
