sum (DataMatrix)

Return sum of elements in DataMatrix object

Syntax

S = sum(DMObj)
S = sum(DMObj, Dim)
S = sum(DMObj, Dim, IgnoreNaN)

Input Arguments

DMObj

DataMatrix object, such as created by DataMatrix (object constructor).

Dim

Scalar specifying the dimension of DMObj to calculate the sums. Choices are:

  • 1 — Default. Returns sum of elements in each column.

  • 2 — Returns sum of elements in each row.

IgnoreNaN

Specifies if NaNs should be ignored. Choices are true (default) or false.

Output Arguments

S

Either of the following:

  • Row vector containing the sums of the elements in each column in DMObj (when Dim = 1)

  • Column vector containing the sums of the elements in each row in DMObj (when Dim = 2)

Description

S = sum(DMObj) returns the sum of the elements in the columns of a DataMatrix object, treating NaNs as missing values. S is a row vector containing the sums of the elements in each column in DMObj. If the values in DMObj are singles, then S is a single; otherwise, S is a double.

S = sum(DMObj, Dim) returns the sum of the elements in the columns or rows of a DataMatrix object, as specified by Dim. If Dim = 1, returns S, a row vector containing the sums of the elements in each column in DMObj. If Dim = 2, returns S, a column vector containing the sums of the elements in each row in DMObj. Default Dim = 1.

S = sum(DMObj, Dim, IgnoreNaN) specifies if NaNs should be ignored. IgnoreNaN can be true (default) or false.
