Split Matrix into multiple Submatrices

17 views (last 30 days)
I have a large matrix of 6000x10 arrays. I wanted to get some thing like 100 different 60x10 matrices. How can I do that? I can think of a method of cell2mat, in case I do that will I be able to add rows/columns in those cells?

YourArray = randi(9, 6000, 10);
subarrays = mat2cell(YourArray, 60*ones(1,size(YourArray,1)/60), 10*ones(1,size(YourArray,2)/10));
size(subarrays)
ans = 1×2
100 1
size(subarrays{1,1})
ans = 1×2
60 10

Thanks. It worked. Thanks for taking time to reply. Its extemely helpful for my reserach.
I need another help about the cell operation. How can I add those 60 rows with each other in the cell. I meant to say, Row 1 (first cell) + Row 1 (second cell)+...., and repeat it for all 60 rows and get a final 60x10 matrix.

YourArray = randi(9, 6000, 10);
added_together = permute(sum(reshape(YourArray, 60, [], 10),2), [1 3 2]);
which is to say, do not break it into cell arrays if your plan is just to add them together.
If you need the call arrays for other reasons, then
added_together = sum(cat(3, subarrays{:}),3);
