Repeat elements of a vector as matrixes in a multidimensional array.

8 views (last 30 days)
Hello Everyone.
I want to repeat elements of a vector as matrixes in a multidimensional array. For example, say I have the vector v = [1 2 3 4 5]. Then I want to construct a three dimensional array w of dimension say 4*3*lenght(v) where: w(:,:,1) = v(1), w(:,:,2) = v(2), ... w(:,:,length(v)) = v(end). Is there a way to do this without using a for loop ? Any help would be precious.
Thank you.

If I understood your task correctly, you can use arrayfun() to create each x-y-Matrix and concatenate them using cat():
x = 4;
y = 3;
v = [1 2 3 4 5];
cOut = arrayfun(@(dIn,nInd) ones(x,y) .* dIn, v, 1:length(v), 'UniformOutput',false);
dOut = cat(3,cOut{:});
Kind regards,
Robert

Thank you very much. It works perfectly as I want it.

Another way:
m = size of 1st dimension
n = size of 2nd dimension
result = reshape(repmat(v,m*n,1),m,n,[]);
