When I run this code, there is a problem like this:
Index exceeds the number of array elements (0).
Error in Untitled9 (line 39)
plot (t,abs(Xn(1:k)));
And this is a code:
clc;
close all;
Fs=500;
Ts=1/Fs;
Tsin=3;
t=0:Ts:1-Ts;
x1n=cos(50*pi*t);
t=1:Ts:2-Ts;
x2n=cos(50*pi*t)+cos(100*pi*t);
t=2:Ts:3-Ts;
x3n=cos(50*pi*t)+cos(100*pi*t)+cos(150*pi*t);
t=3:Ts:Tsin;
xn=[x1n x2n x3n zeros(size(t))];
M=128;
L=30;
Nx=length (xn);
k=(Nx-L)/(M-L);
k=floor(k);
R=M-L;
g=gausswin(M);
Xn=[];
for n=1:k
X=xn(((n-1)*R+1):(n-1)*R+M);
Xm=fft(X,M);
figure(1);
plot3(repmat(n,1,M),1:M,abs(fft(X,M)));
hold on
end
t=0:Ts:Tsin;
figure(2)
subplot(1,2,1);
plot(t,xn);
xlabel('t(s)');
ylabel('Amplitude');
title ('Input sequence');
subplot (1,2,2);
plot (t,abs(Xn(1:k)));
Index exceeds the number of array elements. Index must not exceed 0.
xlabel('t(s)');
ylabel('Amplitude');
title('STFT');

The problems is you are trying to index an empty array. You define Xn=[]; and never assign it a value, but then try to index it like it has a value.
Is Xm a typo? Did you mean to use Xn? If so, note that I had to adjust the number of t values to make the number of Xn values in the plot command: both have to have 1:k values.
clc;
close all;

t=0:Ts:1-Ts;
x1n=cos(50*pi*t);

x2n=cos(50*pi*t)+cos(100*pi*t);
t=2:Ts:3-Ts;
x3n=cos(50*pi*t)+cos(100*pi*t)+cos(150*pi*t);

plot3(repmat(n,1,M),1:M,abs(fft(X,M)));
hold on
end
t=0:Ts:Tsin;

subplot(1,2,1);
plot(t,xn);
xlabel('t(s)');
ylabel('Amplitude');
title ('Input sequence');
subplot (1,2,2);
plot (t(1:k),abs(Xn(1:k)));
xlabel('t(s)');
ylabel('Amplitude');

thank you

You have confusingly defined both Xn and xn. You are trying to access the variable Xn, which is an empty array.
I'm guessing you intended to access xn instead, but I haven't tried to figure out what you actually wanted to do.
