Cumulative sum for a vector

Asked by Teemu
on 2 Mar 2013

I have vector 1x5 (1,5,3,2,8) and I like to do cumulative sum of that. So the answer should seems like (6,9,11,19). Can you help me how to do it without loop?

 x =  [1,5,3,2,8];

but the first element is 1, not 6 as you have indicated. Of course, if you don't want that first element, you can do:

 x = [1,5,3,2,8];
 y = cumsum(x);
 y = y(2:end);
