Getting error as array indices must be positive integers or logical values in slope calculation.

8 views (last 30 days)
My R matrix is 512x43 and I would like to calculate slope by central diff from row wise values.
It shows logical values error ? What's the wrong in this slope calculation.
Thanks in advance.
%testing slope by central difference
load('R.mat');
dy = zeros(43,1);
ddy = zeros(43,1);
delx = 1e-4;
for ij=1:1:512
for ji = 1:1:43
dy(ij,ji) = (R(ij,ji+1)-R(ij,ji-1))/(2/delx);
ddy(ij,ji) = (R(ij,ji+1)-2*R(ij,ji)+R(ij,ji-1))/delx^2;
end
end
Index in position 2 is invalid. Array indices must be positive integers or logical values.

I suspect the error is in your column index for R:
  • ji-1
When ji=1, the result is 0, which is not a valid index in MATLAB.
Note that you will have another problem when hi=43, as you also use ji+1. The result will be 44, which exceeds the size of R.
