Hi, I have two array and I want to generate one matrix according to these arrays.
For example:
a={2,5,2,4,2,3,4,4,8}
b={1,3,1,3,4,2,3,3,2}
Matrix is 2 to 1 -> 1, 5 to 3 -> 1, 2 to 1 -> 2 (again) ...
Output:
Thanks for your helps.

Hi!
Loop over your a/b vectors and increase the specified matrix element:
M = zeros(max(a), max(b));
for n = 1:length(a)
M(a(n), b(n)) = M(a(n), b(n)) + 1;
end

a={2,5,2,4,2,3,4,4,8};
b={1,3,1,3,4,2,3,3,2};
yourmat=zeros(8,5);
for ii=1:length(a)
yourmat(a{ii},b{ii})=yourmat(a{ii},b{ii})+1;
end
Why are you using a cell array for a and b?

Yes you are right, I wrote with wrong parenthesis. Thanks.

a=[2,5,2,4,2,3,4,4,8];
b=[1,3,1,3,4,2,3,3,2];
sz = [8 5];
out = nan(sz + 1);
out(2:end,2:end) = accumarray([a(:),b(:)],1,sz);
out(1,2:end) = 1:sz(2);
out(2:end,1) = 1:sz(1);
