The collection of functions in the NaN Suite enhances the functionality of the original 'nan'-functions in the Statistics Toolbox for N-D matrices. In addition, the new function nansem.m calculates the standard error of the mean ignoring NaNs.
The NaN Suite functions are used similar to the original functions (e.g. mean, std, var), that is they take a matrix as the first input, and the dimension along which the operation should be computed as the second input. For example, nanmean(A,4) calculates the mean of A along the 4th dimension of A ignoring NaNs.
