Is it possible to find mean and std dev. of every row in a huge matrix with double data and a lot of NaN interspersed without looping through every row ?
A = [1 2 NaN; 4 NaN 6 ; 8 9 10]
output = 1.5 5 9
No products are associated with this question.
If you have the Statistics toolbox, you can use nanmean(A,2) and nanstd(A,2).
If you don't have the toolbox, you can still avoid looping by doing
B=A; map=~isnan(A); B(~map)=0; N=sum(map,2);
rowmeans = sum(B,2)./N; rowstds = sqrt( sum(B.^2,2)./N -rowmeans.^2 );
If A is of type sparse, however, the above may need to be modified for efficiency's sake.
