If (a(i)>0)&&(a(i-1)==0)&&(a(i-2)==0)&&(a(i-3)==0)&&(a(i-4)==0)&&(a(i-5)==0)&&(a(i-6)==0)...until a(i-32)==0

I have no idea what you are askiing.
See if the all or any functions will work with whatever you are doing.

Like Star Strider mentioned, you can use all() or any()
a(i)>0 && ~any(a(i-32:i-1))
but there are a couple things to mention.
First is whether a is an integer class. If it's not, then testing for equality with zero is likely going to cause problems. Test to within some tolerance.
a(i)>0 && all(abs(a(i-32:i-1)-0)<tolerance)
Second is whether you're making sure a(i-32), etc exist. You may need to pad the vector or restrict the indexing accordingly.
