Hi All,
I have a 115x1 vector, say A which is attached, that I'd like to remove the elements that satisfy some conditions and add some that satisfy others. To be specific,
B = diff(A) = [768 12 757 767 12 756 ...1524.....768 13 754 271]
if B(n)<100, I would like to remove A(n) from A.
if 100 < B(n) < 300, I would like to remove A(n+1) from A.
if B(n) > 1500, I'd like to add an element to A between two elements of A that their diff value satisfies this constraint. for example B(91)=1523, and I like to add a point between A(91) and A(92), i.e., A(91)+A(92)/2.
I know how to do that when there is one constraint, but I struggle when there are more. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
pointToDelet = B<100;
A(pointToDelet) = []

A = locs;
B = diff(A);
idx = B < 100;
A(idx) = []; % remove from both A and B because
B(idx) = []; % you need both A and B for the next step
idx = [false; B > 100 & B < 300];
A(idx) = [];
B(idx(2:end)) = [];
inds = find(B > 1500);
for ii = inds(end:-1:1).'
A = [A(1:ii); (A(ii)+A(ii+1))/2; A(ii+1:end)];
end
@Susan: By the way, what should happen if an element of B is exactly 100? According to the rules, if it were slightly less than 100 then the corresponding element of A would be removed; if it were slightly more than 100 then the element of A after it would be removed; but if it's exactly 100, A is unchanged...
Regardless of that, notice that after this process, you can still end up with elements of diff(A) = B > 1500, because the insertion of the new element in A effectively halves the two corresponding elements in B (i.e., the difference is now split half and half among two adjacent elements), but if the original difference was sufficiently large (> 3000), half of it will still be > 1500. An example of this (I don't know if it's a problem for what you're trying to do, but it's something to be aware of):
A = [0; 5000; 11000];
B = diff(A);
inds = find(B > 1500);
for ii = inds(end:-1:1).'
A = [A(1:ii); (A(ii)+A(ii+1))/2; A(ii+1:end)];
end
A
A = 5×1
0 2500 5000 8000 11000
B = diff(A)
B = 4×1
2500 2500 3000 3000

@millercommamatt: What happens when B has two elements in a row > 1500?
A = [0 1600 3400];
B = diff(A);
inds = find(B>1500);
for ii = inds
A = [A(1:ii), (A(ii)+A(ii+1))/2, A(ii+1:end)];
end
A
A = 1×5
0 800 1200 1600 3400
Doesn't seem right. That's because when you insert the new element, all the higher indices (i.e., the rest of the elements of inds) are now one lower than they need to be, to account for the new element just inserted.
If you start at the end and go backwards instead, it works:
A = [0 1600 3400];
B = diff(A);
inds = find(B>1500);
for ii = inds(end:-1:1)
A = [A(1:ii), (A(ii)+A(ii+1))/2, A(ii+1:end)];
end
A
A = 1×5
0 800 1600 2500 3400

this is why you test code
