Accepted answer

BSXFUN isn't overloaded well in the quaternion toolbox that you're using. Here is a workaround

q= convert(A(i-1:i+1,j-1:j+1),'single'); [minsum, minidx] = min( sum(abs( repmat(q(:),1,9)-repmat(q(:).',9,1) ) ));

i have found 4 values using above equation

V1,V2,V3,V4

now i want to apply in code

A=imreadq('peppers.png'); T=65; for i=2:6 for j=2:6 q= convert(A(i-1:i+1,j-1:j+1),'single'); [minsum, minidx] = min( sum(abs( repmat(q(:),1,9)-repmat(q(:).',9,1) ) ));

S=min([V1 V2 V3 V4]); if S>T THE CENTRE PIXEL OF QUANTERION ARRAY IS REPLACED BY minsum

else THE CENTRE PIXEL IS not REPLACED BY minsum end end end

please help,and original image must be added with noise,please assist

What does each element look like? Is there a reason you cannot just use min(TheMatrix(:)) ?

My form is 384x512 pure quaternion array with uint8 components

if i use min i get error

Undefined function or method 'min' for input arguments of type 'quaternion'.

FIR Commented:i downloaded [the quaternion] tool box from here
