Can anyone please help me to create the curve as below. I'm looking for away to plot the highest point at y-axix for all x-axis. I attached my data and plot as below.
scatter(MaT_All(:,18), MaT_All(:,17))


Dear darova,
I want to focus on the top part only and I need to extract these data to do more analyse.

Hello Yaser,
I believe the issue you are facing can be solved in two steps:
  1. Find the maximum value corresponding to each value of x. For this, you can visit this MATLAB Answer thread and see if it helps.
  2. Plot the values found in the previous step to form the upper boundary .

Dear Naman, I have looked into it but I have one question as my code below. How to find the index of the ymax?
x = round(MaT_All(:,18),0);
y = MaT_All(:,17);
[uv,~,idx] = unique(x);
ymax = accumarray(idx,y,[],@max); %build matrix
I alost tired the following and I still need to find the index of (Resutl)
Result = splitapply(@max, y, idx);
