xor(y_0 with row1 of z)
and xor(y_0 with row 2 of z)

If you are new to MATLAB, I'd suggest MATLAB Onramp. Chapter 6 talks about performing calculations with arrays.

One option is to use the bsxfun (link) function:
y_0 = [0 1 1 0 1 0 0 1 0 1 1 0 1 0 0 1];
z = [1 1 1 1 0 0 0 0 1 1 1 1 0 0 0 0
1 0 0 1 0 1 1 0 1 0 0 1 0 1 1 0];
Out = bsxfun(@xor, y_0, z)
producing:
Out =
2×16 logical array
1 0 0 1 1 0 0 1 1 0 0 1 1 0 0 1
1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1
