hello

if i have this matrix A =

10000 00010 10101 10011 10000 00001 the rows can be from 1 to 2.^m-2 where m lets say 5. so that gives us 30 rows. i want to flip these rows from bottom to top so that the last row is the first, the second last becomes the second, the third last the third.

flipped A =

00001 10000 10011 10101 00010 10000

then i want to pick the odd numbered rows from the flipped order (the first, third, fifth) such that 1:2:2t rows are picked out and displayed as shown below (here t = 3)

00001 10011 00010

can anyone help out with this?

regards

Accepted answer

A =[10000 00010 10101 10011 10000 00001];

A = num2str(A); b = strrep(A(:)',' ','0'); A(:) = b; % A is string

out1 = flipud(A); out2 = out1(1:2:end,:);

ADD after the Malik's comment

A = [ 1 1 0 0 0 0 1 0 1 0 0 1 1 0 1 0 0 1 1 0 1 1 1 1 1 0 1 0 0 1 1 1 1 0 1 1 1 0 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 0 1 1 0 1 0 0 1 1 1 1 0 1 1 1 1 1 0 1 1 1 1 0 1 1 1 1 0 1 1 1 1 1 1 0 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 0 1 1 0 0 1 0 1 1 0 1 0 0 1 1 0 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 0 1 1 1 1 1 1 0 1 1 1 1 0 1 1 1 1 0 1 1 1 1 1 0 1 1 1 1 0 0 1 0 1 1 0 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 0 1 1 1 0 1 1 1 1 0 0 1 0 1 1 1 1 1 0 1 1 0 0 1 0 1 1 0 0 1 0 1];

out1 = flipud(A); out2 = out1(1:2:end,:);

i have another question and since it is linked to this i find it convenient to post it right here, if i need to take the lcm of the binary rows that have come ut finally in out2 i am doing this:

converting each row to dec using num2str(bin2dec(out2(:))) (but doesnt work )

then applying lcm (out3)

% but the lcm function wont work for more than two numbers which is pretty challenging here, how to work through this?

What doe "matrix A = 10000 ..." exactly mean? Is this a CHAR matrix /then you forgot the quotes), or a double matrix (then the leading zeros are meaningless). It is not clear, what "the rows can be from 1 to 2.^m-2" means. Do you mean the size of the matrix or the decimal representatioon of the values of the elements or rows?
